Know What I Want?

You know what I want?
I want a book where the main character isn't the hero.
I want one where everyone suspects the protagonist is not the hero--and are wrong.
I want heroes who are underestimated, who struggle with normal problems.
Like depression.
Or anxiety.
A little bit of self-doubt is realistic.
I don't want to read a book like it is a classic movie, where everyone knows what happens.
I want to root for my characters, not watch them succeed at everything they do.
Because people fail.
We fail and crash and burn. 
We aren't good at our jobs. 
I want an author to recognize that.
Now, don't get me wrong, I love my books.
My precious Lord of the Rings.
Always Harry Potter.
I couldn't forget Percy Jackson, or Magnus Chase, or the Trials of Apollo.
The Fourth Stall is always in business.
Wings of Fire, I will always be loyal to you.
But a bit of variety would be nice.
Because in real life, people struggle. 
People take time to get good.
Nobody can wield a sword perfectly on their first try.
(Oh, believe me, I know)
Maybe throw in some unexpected change.
Like moving.
Or a sudden death of a loved one.
Their friends turning their back on them.
How about some breaking of the stereotypes?
Hmm...or maybe women who aren't just love interests?
Us girls can fight too! I would LOVE to take people down in battle!
Or boys who are just the dorky nerds with impossible crushes.
Us real people know those too.
Just a thought.
Now you guys know what I want.

 
If anyone know of books who do this, PLEASE let meknow! I am always in need of books.

    I would suggest giving “More Happy Than Not”, “They Both Die At The End” and “History is All You Left Me” by Adam Silvera a read!
