It's not character development per se, it's also wanting to make sure I have the age right. The character in question is Gina Copper, cousin of Heridon Copper (detective of my mystery stories). She goes to a school for the deaf and blind (She's deaf). In the first mystery, there's this little event in her school library about Charles Dickens and the book Oliver Twist. In the event, there are small Oliver Twist dolls the children can get and Samantha gets one for winning a contest. Basically, how old is too old for Samantha to recieve an Oliver Twist doll? How old would she be to stop playing with said doll? In fact, how old would she have to be to read Oliver Twist* yet young enough to get the doll and treat it like it's a sentinent object? (IE, saying things like "Don't squish Oliver!" if Heridon's about to put his backpack right on top of it.) * I don't mean the full length version. I mean a cut-down, abridged version for children. NOTE: The school she goes to accepts children from ages four to eleven.
