An Analysis Of Ever's Ever

Good Essays
The main character of this book is Ever. She, as a character, is very interesting. Of course, like most characters, she has many flaws. Ever is a psychic capable of reading minds, seeing emotions, and knowing your life story by just touching you. She also has the enviable power of knowing the answers to homework/tests by touching the questions. She cannot, however, imitate artwork; such as Starry Night by Van Gogh. Ever says: ¨...though it probably seems cool to read minds and energy and auras…. it so isn’t¨ (Noël, 78-79). Ever goes on to say: ¨...even your best friends can think some pretty unflattering things, and not having an off switch requires a… lot of forgiveness¨ (Noël, 79). Which shows that even though she knows what her friends …show more content…
Even though Ever’s love interest, Damen, is introduced early on in the story, her friends do not fade into the background. I like this idea because I feel friendships are much more important for a story. I dislike the idea most books have, whether intentionally or not, that if you find that one person, you should drop your friends. Ever stays away from Damen, or at least tries to, once she realizes Haven likes him. She tries hard to keep Haven happy, leaving Damen and going after her when Haven was upset, and I like how the author put that into the book. The book wouldn’t have changed much without that scene, so the fact that the author left it tells a lot about Ever as a character. Even though she interacts with Miles a lot less, you can still tell she values his friendship. She talks to Miles about how she ‘doesn’t like Damen,’ and Miles comments on how he hopes Haven knows what a good friend Ever is. Later on in the book, Ever thinks that she could tell Miles everything, showing that she trusts him to a degree, but knowing she can’t tell anyone. Even so, she won’t lie to them about anything other than her ‘gifts.’ She also talks to Miles a lot about Damen, something she can’t so with Haven. It was refreshing that the author used Ever’s friends to help with the plot instead of relying on just Damen and Ever

    Miss Evers was truly acting in the best interest of her patients. She truly cared about them and when times became tough, she stood by their side through the entire study.

    burst into a hearty laugh that made her put down her book momentarily as she regained her composure. I asked her what was she reading that had her laughing so hard. She told me it was a book by an author named Sister Soulja called “The Coldest Winter Ever.” With a scrunched up face and through squinted eyes I asked “you’re reading about winter?” With a soft chuckle she replied “No, that is the name of the main character.” That intrigued my interest because I never heard of anyone being named after…
