May Belle Aarons — One of Jess’ younger sisters. She is described as the only one of his siblings with whom he feels comfortable. However, because she is six years to his 10, she does not fit the mold of the ideal confidante to him, leaving him still desperate for companionship. She clearly worships him from the beginning, and like him, feels that she does not have a place in the family.
Ellie and Brenda Aarons — Jess’ two older sisters. They primarily exist as secondary static characters, or ones who do not grow or change as a result of the events of a story.

Prince Terrien — A puppy that Jesse gave Leslie for Christmas.
Mrs. Myers — Jess and Leslie’s teacher, given the nickname “Monster Mouth Myers.” She favors Leslie, and tells Jess after her death that she was the best student she had ever had. Her husband had also died.
