The Top Ten

1 Margo Roth Spiegelman (Paper Towns)

One of the best female supporting character. I love you, Margo Roth Spiegelman. ❤ From Manila wt love.

Maybe it's because Paper Towns is my favorite book, or that Margo is my favorite character, but there's something about her especially... Her charisma? Her cleverness? - timelord44

2 Alaska Young (Looking for Alaska)

I love Alaska. I just read Looking for Alaska (best book ever by the way) and I thought this character was wonderful. - Solacress

She's funny and mysterious and have some very deep thoughts, I love how she have tons of books to read and that she always have awesome pranks, She's the perfect combination of deep and funny.

She's mysterious, like Margo. She's funny without ever being mean. She's the light in the dark. She's Alaska. What else can I say? - timelord44

What young actress will receive the privilege and challenge of portraying her in the movie version?

3 Isaac (The Fault In Our Stars)

Funny, nerdy... An excellent secondary character. - timelord44

I wanted Isaac and Hazel to end up together=(

4 Quentin {Q} Jacobsen (Paper Towns)

I love him almost as much as I love Margo... And for this reason: he's nothing like Margo, and they complete each other. - timelord44

5 Augustus Waters (The Fault In Our Stars)

He is sassy fun sensitive strong and hot.

He deserve world

He's hilarious, he can bring up any sad mood. He and Alaska would be good together. - timelord44

6 Will Grayson (Will Grayson, Will Grayson)

You can't help but feel mixed feelings for this poor soul. You're not sure if he's funny or saddening or angering or all at the same time. - timelord44

I relate to him so much

I can relate to uppercase Will (aka straight Will, aka Schrodinger Will) more than I can relate to most real people. - timelord44

7 Lacey Pemberton (Paper Towns)

She's always there for the main characters and, again, that's good in a secondary character. - timelord44

8 Hazel Grace Lancaster (The Fault In Our Stars)

I liked her at the beginning of the book, but then she just became a jerk, especially to Peter, who was just trying to apologize. - Solacress

Although I like Isaac better, I think Hazel is a good enough protagonist. (Watch this one go all the way to the top :P) - timelord44

9 Ben (Paper Towns)


10 The Colonel (Looking For Alaska)

Can't believe he's not on the list, I mean have you read the part when he was cheering against the opposite team, The boy is awesome!

The Contenders

11 Radar (Paper Towns)

I've only seen The Fault in our Stars and Paper Towns as Movies. Not read any of the books by the Author but Isaac, Radar and Margot are my Favourites.

12 Takumi (Looking For Alaska)
13 Colin Singleton (An Abundance of Katherines)

Not much can be said about Colin except that he kind of rules. - timelord44

14 Hassan Harbish (An Abundance of Katherines)
15 Lara (Looking for Alaska)
