Personality Edit

Sally is bold and realistic. She also happens to have a addiction to coffee- as shown in Phone Fear :

Sally is described as pretty. She has long, straight brown hair with side bangs and wide brown eyes. She is tan, petite.

Relationships Edit

Sally initially takes a liking to Adam. She calls him cute within the first few minutes of meeting him, and when she mentions Watch, she makes it a point to tell Adam that they are just friends without any prompting. In The Secret Path, Sally asks if Adam left a girl behind in Missouri and if she should be jealous. When Adam reassures her that he did not and she shouldn't, Sally is relieved. In The Howling Ghost, when Sally notices Adam being nice to Cindy, who was devastated due to the disappearance of her brother, she becomes very possessive and jealous. This jealousy explains much of the aggression between Cindy and Sally, who both feel affection toward Adam; most of the tension between them stems from this rivalry. Over time, Sally's romantic feelings for Adam appear to fade; instead, she picks on Adam occasionally, but her aggressive relationship with Cindy remains.

Watch is her best friend since they were young, he had a small crush on her in the early books but then he claims to love her as a sister and Sally care about him like an older sister.  In The Dangerous Quest, she was very sad when he died and said she wasn't sure of having an adventure without him, then she was happy when the other Watch was alive.

Bryce is another close friend of her but sometimes they have disccusion because their similar personalities, they care about each other. In the The Dark Corner , she said that she thinks he is cute but she doesn't have a crush on him.
