4. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
5. HARRY POTTER FROM THE HARRY POTTER SERIES
The Boy Who Lived wouldn’t have lived throughout the books if not for so many people! Despite his attempts to go solo and defeat Lord Voldemort all on his own, we all know that didn’t last for long.
Throughout the series, Harry can always rely on his two best friends Hermoine Granger and Ron Weasley to overcome endless trials and tribulations, solve mysteries, tackle f life or death battles, and, even worse, pop quizzes!
Hermoine and Ron are there for Harry just about every step of the way!
Aside from all the help from his two best friends, Harry had the professors of Hogwarts to help him on his journey as well. Albus Dumbledore, ovable and genuine headmaster, always had Harry’s back; Professor Minerva McGonagall, firm but fair hero of the Hogwarts staff; and in almost each book there was a professor that made a positive difference in Harry’s life.
More than that, there are a few other characters we just can’t forget. Rubeus Hagrid, although not always taking on the most significant role in the plot, was essentially like a father to Harry! Always giving him parental advice, watching over him every step of the way. We all love you Hagrid!
James and Lily Potter are the reason why Harry’s lives through Voldemort’s attack in their home and why we even have a story to begin with. They even come back a couple of more times in the series to help support Harry from beyond the grave. Now that’s what I call good parenting!
Neville Longbottom, a character who shows us what is truly means to go from zero to hero. If it weren’t for him in the end, coming in clutch for Harry, Voldemort may not have been defeated!
Harry would not have had a happy ending without the help from all these people, and then some!
6. Frodo Baggins from The Lord of the Rings series
Frodo admitted that he couldn’t go through his journey alone. Thanks to all his friends, both new and old, who joined him in his adventure, he did not have to. The start of their fellowship was the beginning a fantastical adventure and the greatest of friendships.
Granted, they definitely had a rocky start with a great deal of issues— Elves and Dwarfs do not typically mix well!
Over time they learn to work together and fight to protect each other. Even when they are split into groups and separated by miles, they never give up on each other, and each individual’s effort makes a way for others to run from harm, save others in a pinch, and in the safe the world from evil.
Sure Frodo is the main character, and the one to bear the ring, but really, it’s the fellowship that saves the day.
