Serious Badass of the Month – Charlotte Doyle

Posted in book porn by Lauren Leto on April 6, 2010

April is Avi’s month. The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle‘s heroine – Charlotte Doyle – is the Serious Badass of the Month.

I picture her hair a little less feathered than in this cover.

First, I must point out the author, Avi [birth name Edward Irving Wortis], has Alan Arkin for a cousin. This fact in no way influenced my decision to make Doyle SBoftheM but it definitely didn’t hurt.

Second, they’re making a Ramona and Beezus movie but they haven’t done one yet for True Confessions? For shame, Hollywood. I’d pay the exorbitant fees for movie tickets to see it as long as they don’t put Abigail Breslin as the lead. The girl from Little Miss Sunshine cannot be Charlotte Doyle.

Third, Doyle squeals on Zacariah for trying to arrange a mutiny then tries to protect him from the Captain’s lashing (double crossing bitch). After his [fake] death, she proves she can help out the crew by climbing to the tallest mast. This is like that one time, at summer camp, that I had to climb a six foot tall rope wall. You know, except really fucking dangerous.

She does other crazy ass shit too – but you should’ve read the book in first grade and I’m tired of typing the whole plot. At the end she decides to run away from her family and become a sailor. Badass.
