Angela | 1934 comments I don't know if this is already out there, but I thought we could give it a go...

List a book and the next person has to put the name of the main character in the book. First names only are okay.

For example:
Book: Gods in Alabama
Main Character: Arlene

So I will kick it off!!

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

Cool!
