  1. Character Traits

  2. Agatha had a narrow, oblong face with angular cheekbones and a pointed chin. Her slit-like eyes were a clouded hazel, and her thinly plucked eyebrows were shaped into a deceivingly perfect arch that followed the slight curve of her eye. A long nose hooked over continually pursed lips, which were painted a bright red in an unsuccessful effort to mask their natural thinness. Bleached blonde hair, made thin from too many years of hair dye, hung straight down into an angular cut at her jaw. The sharp features of Agatha's face were merely a reflection of her entire body structure, and everything—from her skeletal arms to her paper-thin waste—screamed of unnatural skinniness. She walked in long strides, her shoulders back and face held forward, wearing tall stiletto heels and a bold leopard-print mini-dress.

  6. Dialogue—What characters say to each other

  7. Nancy spoke to me as if she were my mother. 'Margaret dear--you can't possibly miss Laura Danker. The big blonde with the big you know whats!' 'Oh, I noticed her right off,' I said. 'She's very pretty.' 'Pretty!' Nancy snorted. 'You be smart and stay away from her. She's got a bad reputation.' 'What do you mean?' I asked. 'My brother said she goes behind the A&P with him and Moose.' 'And,' Janie added, 'she's been wearing a bra since fourth grade and I bet she gets her period.' From: Are you there God? It’s me Margaret by Judy Blume
