7 Reasons Digby Is Your New Book Boyfriend

If Insta-love is when two book characters fall in love at first sight, what’s it called when a real person falls in love with a book character at first read? Introducing the brilliant and sometimes annoying yet irresistible Digby from Trouble is a Friend of Mine. But by the last page, you’ll realize that he snuck into your heart without you even realizing, and here’s why:


1. He dresses for the occasion.

Digby drags his neighbor Zoe Webster through a series of OUTRAGEOUS scenarios, but he’s always wearing the same thing – a suit. And ok, it doesn’t really fit him, but who can resist that dedication?


2. He has a [questionable] job.

You’ll find him at the mall in a teddy bear costume for what is essentially Build-A-Bear. Hey, gotta make ends meet.


3. He loves sharing meals together.

Ok yes, he might make you pay for them 99% of the time, but he’ll always appreciate the feel of a full belly.


4. He’ll bring you around when he’s hanging with his best friend.

And even though you’ll wonder how he even has ONE friend, you can kinda see why they work.


5. He knows the importance of family.

Even if that means obsessively working to find out what happened to his missing sister 9 years ago.


6. His persistence is unmatched.

Breaking into a gynecologist’s office, getting shot at, tracking down a cult, evading drug lords, winter dances, and explosions are but pebbles in the road to his goal.


7. Underneath it all, his heart may be made of golden kittens & rainbows.

At the end of the day, the insanity that he’ll put you through can’t hide the fact that everything he does is for a reason that will melt your heart.
