Okay, so I've started writing my first novel and have completed 2 chapters so far. My main character is a male who lives in a rough part of town with his grandparents. He feels isolated from everybody else, getting bullied for his hard-working and intelligent nature. I posted my first 2 chapters on a review site and the reviews I got back were that my character was too cliche, meaning the readers couldn't relate to him at all. I don't know what to do now. Do I just scrap the novel and think up another? I don't want to get to the end then find out that nobody can relate to the character at all. Changing the character would pretty much leave me with no story. Any advice?
