Anne of Green Gables. I think we would be kindred spirits. I grew up a lot like Anne. Not an orphan, but playing outside in the fields and woods and making up all kinds of games and stories. As a child, I had a vivid imagination and a bountiful spirit.
I think again Bridget Jones. She would make me laugh and I love to laugh. She reminds me of myself when I was single with her social awkwardness, anxieties and self-consciousness. But she has her strengths because she is kind, well-meaning and determined. I would love to know her now that she would be in her fifties. I believe she would be a great and loyal best friend.
Emily Byrd Starr from Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Emily trilogy. She is as close to a character as I will ever be. A dreamer and a writer with an infinity for all things beautiful, Emily is wishful and determined to succeed to both writing and learning of being a human. She would understand me better than any other character I can think of.
When I was little, I always wanted to be friends with Francie Nolan from A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. She loved to read, and she used to sit out on her fire escape with a library book and a bowl of peppermint candies. I love to eat candy while I read, so I absolutely think we would have understood each other.
