Hmm, not exactly what I would have chosen, but

You're The Giver!

by Lois Lowry

While you grew up with a sheltered childhood, you're pretty sure everyone around you is even more sheltered. Suddenly, from out of nowhere, you were tapped on the shoulder and transported to the real world. This made you horrified by your prior upbringing and now you're tormented by how to reconcile these two lives. Ultimately, the struggle comes down to that old free will issue. Choose wisely.

at the Blue Pyramid.

Coincidentally, I wrote a post about this book not too long ago. It's somewhere in my archives.


  • I'm Siddhartha - "You simply don't know what to believe, but you're willing to try anything once."

    That explains why I quit the corporate word for a teaching career.

  • I'm either Anne of Greene Gables or Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, depending whether I answer yes to "Am I confident". I suppose that works.

  • Fred, that's so funny! I don't know what to believe most of the time either.

    Thanks, Heather! :)

    And Melissa, that was the question that stumped me the most. I wanted "sometimes" or "it depends" to be one of the choices. Still, I'd be honored to be Alice. :)

    You're The Things They Carried!
    by Tim O'Brien

    Harsh and bitter, you tell it like it is. This usually comes in short, dramatic spurts of spilling your guts in various ways. You carry a heavy load, and this has weighed you down with all the horrors that humanity has to offer. Having seen and done a great deal that you aren't proud of, you have no choice but to walk forward, trudging slowly through ongoing mud. In the next life, you will come back as a water buffalo.

    You're Anne of Green Gables!
    by L.M. Montgomery
    Bright, chipper, vivid, but with the emotional fortitude of cottage cheese, you make quite an impression on everyone you meet. You're impulsive, rash, honest, and probably don't have a great relationship with your parents. People hurt your feelings constantly, but your brazen honestly doesn't exactly treat others with kid gloves. Ultimately, though, you win the hearts and minds of everyone that matters. You spell your name with an E and you want everyone to know about it.

  • I'm WAITING FOR GODOT. Which I never read, not even in my acting days. Strange!
