Character Summary: Vada is an 11-year-old girl living with her father in Pennsylvania. Her mother passed away shortly after giving birth to Vada and her father is doing everything he can to raise her, but he’s awkward and often doesn’t know how to talk to her. Vada is a total tomboy, plus she’s obsessed with death, thanks to her dad’s job as a mortician. Their house even doubles as a funeral parlor, which definitely allows her to explore that interest. Vada’s having a hard time growing up and she’s trying to understand the world alongside her best friend Thomas J.
