Sister in The Ocean at the End of the Lane

By Neil Gaiman


What a Pain

The boy's sister is one of those stereotypical goody two shoes. She's always telling on him to their parents, and she's such a suck-up to Ursula Monkton that she makes us gag a little bit. Luckily she doesn't have a huge role in this tale, or else we'd be forced to take matters into our own hands.
