Shall we list everyone Tally's betrayed? I don't even think it's worth it though, since we'd just be listing all the characters in the book.

I always hate the main character in a book. Force of habit.

I always like them at first, then when I'm done the book and stop to think about it, I don't like them anymore.

I always go into a book thinking I'll hate the main character, so then anything good makes me like them more, if that makes sense at all.

You know, poor Tally had a lot of crap happen to her. Don't hate too much.

Yes, she did get a lot handed to her, and I feel bad about that, but the way she handled things was wrong.

She was 16, though. Just a kid, really.
