I would describe this character as funny. Because she always embarrasses Lizzy by always talking about books and reading. Plus her hilarious librarian outfits.

I really like the character Jodi because she is so unique and corky. She is Lizzy's best friend and she always has Lizzy's back. She always wears crazy out fits with her red Converse.
