Corey Carcetti, Ella Scott's best friend from The Prettiest Thing, is probably one of my favorite female characters that I have ever created. She is strong-minded, opinionated and she does not apologize for who she is. She loves sex, tattoos, pot and politics. She loves to live life and tries to get Ella to do the same thing. One weakness she does have however is Kyle Colfax, close friend of Trevor Scott and Brett Dawson. I didn't want to make her seem like some pathetic girl pining over an older senior football player even though I have not focused a lot of time on Corey and Kyle together. What I love about the characters of Kyle and Corey is they do what they want when they are together and they have a good time. When Kyle hurts Corey, it hurts her and confuses her more than she ever thought it would and she realizes that she really likes him. Like many seventeen-year-old girls, she has had her heart broken.
In chapter thirty-six of The Prettiest Thing - which I am still working on - Corey and Kyle are going to get some page time together at the beginning but I will say now that even after this story is finished, Corey and Kyle are going to be rather... complicated. Below, I have posted a song, "The Nicest Thing" by Kate Nash, which I feel is a perfect song for Corey in regards to Kyle because even though she is a strong female character, she really has fallen for this boy. Please listen to it and let me know what you think. Now that the story is nearing the end, I will ask everyone again. Who is your favorite character in The Prettiest Thing?
