the main characteur of the story. Mia is quiet, ind and very musically gifted. Above all things, she loves her family, her cello and her friends. Mia struggles with belonging, often feeling like she is out of place next to her rock and roll, rebellious family and boyfriend. she lacks of similarities in character and demeanor to her othe
Adam is Mia's boyfriend. He is said to be very handsome, and loves music. He plays guitar and sings for his band "Shooting Star". Adam adores Mia and Mia's family and goes through a considerable amount of grief after the accident
Kim is Mia's best friend. They are said to be very alike and are known as "dark and studious"—assumptions that often work to their advantage. Kim is sarcastic, and obedient to her emotional mother. She and Mia are inseparable, which becomes apparent by the amount of devotion she shows to getting Adam in to see Mia, though they have never liked each other, as is seen countless times in flashbacks.
Teddy is Mia's little brother. Mia is extremely fond of Teddy, saying he is like her own kid. Teddy admires Mia and the two are very close. Throughout the book, Mia worries the most about Teddy, as it is unclear at first to whether or not he has died alongside her parents in the accident.
Mia's mother is a "tough as nails, tender as kittens." She loves rock and her family. She is sometimes protective and is fiercely loyal. She has previously had issues with Mia's love for classical music, but accepts it as part of Mia's life. She is not the cook of the family.
Mia's father is quite rebellious but is also mature. He steps up to be father and eventually gives up his band in favor of teaching. He is hesitant to admit that he still likes the thought of the band. Both of Mia's parents approve and even love Mia's boyfriend Adam.
