Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
By J.K. Rowling
While the Harry Potter series is full of traditional heroes, when we first meet Neville, he stands out for being pretty much anything but: he’s timid, easily frightened, and always forgets the password to the Gryffindor tower. However, as the books progress, he grows into a truly remarkable character. By the time the final book comes around, his courage knows no bounds, and he proves that anyone can be special.
