It'll be pimples and angst next

If you felt betrayed when your favorite book character (perhaps one of the Pevensie kids in the Narnia books or even the kids of Hogwarts) grew older and you wished they would always stay the same age (like the scary kids in the Family Circus cartoon), imagine how it feels to have your very own character age without your permission.

Susan Patron addresses this awkward situation in her article in the journal Hunger Mountain - read it first, and then read the other articles by such authors as K.A. Nuzum and Janet S. Wong.
