DISCUSSION: Role Model Characters- Jeane Smith from Adorkable

This is a new type of discussion here on the blog where I write about a character from a novel who I find inspirational or just generally awesome.

For my first post I have chosen to spotlight Jeane Smith from Adorkable by Sarra Manning. Jeane Smith runs her own blog, Adorkable, and is still in school. In the novel we see her hectic schedule as she manages school, her online persona, and general dorkiness.

I find Jeane inspirational because she is so sure of herself. She knows who she is and is happy in her own skin. She isn’t the most attractive person but she is comfortable and not worried about what people think of her.

People in real life should be more like Jeane. Instead of obsessing over their look, they should be happy on the inside and so something constructive. I think the world would be a better place if more people like Jeane were about. It would certainly be more fun!

Who do you find inspirational?

    HEY! I’ve seen Adorkable around and, in all honesty, it sounds so cute and adorable and inspirational too! And it’s great that Jeane isn’t an insecure person we need more confident people in the world! 😀

    I have read Adorkable and loved Jeane as a character. She was strong and down right proud of her dorky ness .

    Completely agree with you! So glad you recommended Adorkable because Jeane is such a fantastic character 🙂
    I think you’ll like Lucy from Graffiti Moon. She’s similar to Jeane because she knows what she wants and she’s willing to go for it.

    Oh I love Jeane too and think she is a brilliant role model! I wish I could be so comfortable in my own skin.
