Characters / Un Fortunate Me

Go To


Adele Skye Becker

The protagonist and narrator of the book.

  • Fiery Redhead: Subverted in that Adele is pretty shy most of the time. Double subverted when she gets pissed off.
  • Picked Last: Mainly because she fails at "running, dancing, and basically anything involving throwing a ball".

Delilah Zinnia Horton

Adele's snarky and lazy (but likable) best friend.

  • Freudian Excuse: Being the Unfavorite in her family may be why she's such a bitch sometimes.
  • The Unfavorite: In her family, where she's constantly criticized. If that's not happening, she's ignored.

Brooke Penn

A cheerful, optimistic and compassionate animal rights activist.
  • The Ditz: In her more clueless moments.
  • Dumb Blond: While she is not very dumb, she is easily the most clueless main character.
  • Ms. Imagination: In that she's a hopeless romantic, and even has Patrick and Adele's love story planned out.
  • Shipper on Deck: She supports Patrick/Adele.

Aurora Day

Brooke's best friend.

Patrick Hudson

Adele's BGF.

Alec Wilder

Delilah's eighth-grader crush, a musician.

  • Berserk Button: You don't want to mess with the people he cares about.



Sophia Blank

The antagonist. A mean girl.

  • Alpha Bitch: She the popular, mean girl at the school.
  • Pet the Dog: When Patrick's dad dies, she's quick to offer help if he needs it.

Lyn Patterson

The Dragon to Sophia.


Ashton Keller

The biggest bully in the school.

Minor Characters

Fala Jean

A love interest for Alec.

Milo Becker

Adele's older brother

  • Beta Couple: Compared to all the ship teases, crushes, and relationships of the other characters, he and Saffron have a much more stable relationship.

Mama Horton

Delilah's mother

Mr. Horton

Delilah's father

Piper May Horton

The oldest Horton daughter.

  • The Ace: Female version. Pageant queen, violin player, and studies earlier than is necessary.

Phoebe Cleo Horton

The third-oldest Horton daughter. One year Delilah's junior.

Clara Eloise Horton

The second-youngest Horton daughter.

  • Only Sane Man: Only Sane Daughter. We have stuck-up beauty queen Piper May, snarky Delilah, Attention Whore Phoebe, and space cadet Nicola Clara is... normal.

Nicola Jane Horton

The youngest Horton daughter.

  • The Ditz: She spaces out a lot. Justified as she's only 6.

Hannah Bats

One of Sophia's friends. Notably kinder than both of her friends.

Holly Evers

The sportiest girl in Adele's grade.

  • Has Two Mommies: Gender inversion. She briefly mentions that she could never deal with it if one of her dads died. Her two dads aren't considered a big deal. No one even raises an eyebrow.

Danny Mann

Aurora's love interest.
