Angela and friends 

Even though Matt is the speaker of what I call Angela's books, these books are still hers because she's the road all of this will eventually lead to.

Growing up in a white suburban neighborhood has left Matt both sheltered and trapped in a white privileged society he's not sure he wants to be in. He can't help but want to be different in a neighborhood where everyone is the same, but he's afraid to step out, so he sticks with the same terrible bullies for friends he's known since his daycare days and sticks to being complacent. However, his world changes when Fable Aesop, a young girl his age who was born with a heart defect, moves next door, and through befriending a person who can't help but be "abnormal," he finds the courage to become the person he wants to be, no matter what his family and "friends" think.

 

Bonus!: He loves to create art. Drawing, painting, sculpting, you name it! He loves to create and exercise his imagination, but he's scared of what people will thank, so he keeps it a secret... between him and Fable.

Fable and her parents moved to Lemontree Road the summer after her fifth-grade year next door to the Nelsons. She quickly became friends with the oldest, Matt, who is determined not only to be her friend but to give her a life outside of being homeschooled and tiresome appointments with her cardiologist. Matt gives her reason to believe she can have a normal life despite being "sick and different" and both he and her dream of being more than her Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) are sometimes the only things keeping her going during her hard days.

Bonus!: She wants to be a politician one day so she can advocate for universal health care in order to make sure all kids who have medical problems like her get the care they need so they can live normal, happy lives.

Angela Gale

(Ange-elle-uh)

(Gale)

Angela isn't present in Fable Not Fairytale, but right now she's in Buffalo, NY, with her family, enjoying high school as a cheerleader on the path to valedictorian who takes too many AP classes. She's the golden child, and her siblings are much younger than her, but she's a really good big sister who tries to do it all, placing too much pressure on herself in the process. She's very close with her younger brother Caspian and is trying to make friends despite being more mature than almost everyone her age. Her goal is to attend New York University for Art History after she graduates.
