Dig this.

You could win four tickets to see the Indiana Repertory Theatre’s season-opening production of "Holes," including the pre-show VIP party with live music and a post-show celebration.

In honor of the play, which takes the award-winning young adult novel to the stage, all you have to do is enter below and name your favorite teen character from the world of books. Your pick won’t help you win (that’s by random draw), but might inspire some outside reading.

Good luck.

    Well, I like Harry Potter, Nancy Drew, and several of the others that people have already mentioned.

    I also like Stanley Yelnats, the main character in Holes, and not just because his name is spelled the same in either direction.

    However, asking me my favorite teen character from the world of books is like asking me my favorite book: impossible to answer! So...I'm just going to name the one I've been thinking about this morning:

    15-year-old Darren is the narrator of The Boy Who Couldn't Sleep and Never Had To, by D.C. Pierson (Vintage Contemporaries 2010.)

    I love him because he says things like this:

    "My mom used to give me warm milk when I was a kid and couldn't sleep. I slept easier nights afterwards just wanting to avoid drinking warm milk, which is the strangest thing your mouth can experience, being used to cold milk in cereal and in a glass beside every meal growing up. It's like seeing your teacher outside of school. It's them, but they're all wrong and out of context." (p.59)

    There were a series of books about him in written in the late 40s and early 50s.
    He was a typical postwar teenager who had a penchant for solving problems and mysteries while maintaining a laid back attitude.

  1. So much for Eric Holder's conversation about race. If white people have got something to say, they get sued over it. Bottom line: white people have un-freer speech than others as a consequence of the misnamed "Civil rights laws."

  2. I agree, having seen three shows, that I was less than wowed. Disappointing!!

  3. Start drilling, start fracking, and start using our own energy. Other states have enriched their citizens and nearly elminated unemployment by using these resources that are on private land. If you are against the 'low prices' of discount stores, the best way to allow shoppers more choice is to empower them with better earnings. NOT through manipulated gov mandated min wage hikes, but better jobs and higher competitive pay. This would be direct result of using our own energy resources, yet Obama knows that Americans who arent dependent of gov welfare are much less likely to vote Dem, so he looks for ways to ensure America's decline and keep its citizens dependent of gov.

  4. Say It Loud, I'm Black and Ashamed: It's too bad that with certain "black" entertainment events, it seems violence and thuggery follows and the collateral damage that it leaves behinds continues to be a strain on the city in terms of people getting hurt, killed or becoming victims of crimes and/or stretching city resources. I remember shopping in the Meadows area years ago until violence and crime ended make most of the business pack you and leave as did with Lafayette Square and Washington Square. Over the past 10 to 12 years, I remember going to the Indiana Black Expo Soul Picnic in Washington Park. Violence, gang fights and homicides ended that. My great grandmother still bears the scares on her leg from when she was trampled by a group of thugs running from gun fire from a rival gang. With hundreds of police offices downtown still multiple shootings, people getting shot downtown during Black Expo. A number of people getting shots or murdered at black clubs around the city like Club Six on the west side, The Industry downtown, Jamal Tinsley's shot out in front of the Conrad, multiple fights and shootings at the skating rinks, shootings at Circle Center Mall and shooting and robberies and car jackings at Lafayette Mall. Shootings and gang violence and the State Fair. I can go on and on and on. Now Broad Ripple. (Shaking head side to side) Say It Loud, I'm Black and I'm Ashamed.

  5. Ballard Administration. Too funny. This is the least fiscally responsive administration I have ever seen. One thing this article failed to mention, is that the Hoosier State line delivers rail cars to the Amtrak Beech Grove maintenance facility for refurbishment. That's an economic development issue. And the jobs there are high-paying. That alone is worth the City's investment.
