Gabriella, the main character, is the protagonist, she is a round, dynamic character as the reader knows quite a bit about her, like that she is a 10th grade biology teacher, who is active and has a passion for hiking, she is dynamic because at the start of the story she still thinks that her and Liam have a great relationship, but by the end of the short story she recognizes that Liam is not the right person for her.

In the reminiscent short story ‘Celia Behind Me’, author Isabel Huggan paints a vivid picture of Elizabeth, the speaker and primary focal point of the story, advertising her as a notch under all the other kids, making her desperate for validation and acceptance from her peers. Her frenzied attempts at popularity conduce her to do and make barbaric comments, instilling the main idea of Huggan’s story, that the fear of not being liked has the ability to bring out the worst in young, vulnerable youth. “I could bash your head in I hate you so much, you fart!” Elizabeth’s vitriolic tone and cruel vocabulary towards the inferior, other odd-kid-out, Celia, delineates her as an insensitive, malicious little girl. Huggan characterizes Elizabeth and voices her inherent thoughts and feelings throughout the unorthodox tale. By adopting phrases like “my mother” and “I turned nine” she displays that it’s her perspective when she nastily describes Celia, using adjectives such as “bland and stupid and fruitlike.” Huggan takes advantage of this first person viewpoint to give her readers a better apprehension of Elizabeth and her reasoning behind her decisions.

In “Golden Girl” Anna is narcissistic and shows several signs of narcissism throughout the story. The signs include sensitivity towards criticism, pinning the blame on others, overconfidence, and likability.
