Augustus (August) Sterling: Lunnah’s uptight, grump of a father.
Zio Hamilton: Lunnah’s ex-boyfriend. They dated in their junior year of high school for a few months.
Tina Spencer: Lunnah’s “bestie.” Somewhat. They used to sit together at lunch in high school.
Emma Fortin: The tribe member she meets in Canada.
Marcello Colombo: The tribe member she meets in Italy.
Sunri Sadana: The tribe member she meets in India.
Leo: Lunnah’s spunky black cat.
Thrift Shop Clerk: This mysterious old man’s name is never revealed. He’s the co-owner of Thrifterz, Lunnah’s all-time favorite place to shop.
