Character Analysis of Tessa Grey I agreed to help somone important to me write a character analysis essay on the character Tessa Grey from the book Clockwork Angel. Now, I've never read the book and don't really have the time, however, I can't go back on my word. Could anyone who HAS read it help me out here? Also, any relevant quotes from the book would be super helpful. And yes, this really is for a friend, not me

I would suggest that Tess is a strong person, and very brave.  She is selfless to a certain extent, because she is concerned more with others.  She wants to save her brother.  She is also troubled and confused, because she cannot decide whether to help her friends save the world or be with her brother.
