Hans and Rosa Hubermann and Rudy Steiner from The Book Thief

Picador

"I threw the book across the room then proceeded to sob uncontrollably on the floor for half an hour. If you read that book, be prepared to have your heart ripped out of your chest then run over by a damn bulldozer."

Beatrice 'Tris' Prior from The Divergent Series

Finnick Odair from The Hunger Games

"Snape, so hopefully Harry wouldn't have named his son after someone who abused not only him, but Neville to the point where Neville's biggest fear was Snape."
