Claire is sick of being a Minor Character. She despises the fact that the most exciting thing that happens to her is answering a phone. She wants her own story, she wants more lines, and most of all, she wants adventure. Even if she has to kill someone to do it. Unfortunately, only the Author has the power to kill Characters, but Claire will not be deterred by logic and facts.
Perhaps the Author has been listening because Claire is about to get what she wants. When someone is actually murdered in Character Central, all Minor Characters panic. This is not something that is supposed to happen. In fact, the most dangerous thing that can occur is when they run out of lemons.
If she wants to keep their world safe, she must team up with the one Character she wants to bring down, and others. If all else fails, she may have to take it up with the Author.
