Meet Griffin Lane
Griffin Lane is Ruby’s best friend, biggest fan and reluctant sidekick.
They’ve been inseparable since senior kindergarten. Five-year-old Griffin was mystified because his chocolate chip granola bars were disappearing from his lunch bag every day. Ruby solved the mystery for him.
First, she noticed that Griffin never took the time to zip closed the top of his Bob the Builder lunch bag before he threw it in his cubby at school. Next she noticed that when he threw it in the cubby, it landed face down. Finally, she found a stash of a dozen granola bars wedged between Griffin’s cubby and the one next to it. As the two shared the feast, a friendship was born.
Griffin loves Lady Gaga, video games, mint chocolate chip at The Big Chill, playing soccer and hockey. He’s not crazy about mystery and he hates it when Ruby drags him into an investigation.
Griffin is sensible and cautious. He likes to think things through and consider the consequences before he does something. But Ruby doesn’t give him time to think and there is no point talking to her once she has her mind set on things.
And speaking of talking, it’s not something Griffin does a whole lot of. And when he gets angry? He clams up entirely.
But he admires Ruby. He thinks she’s smart and great company. They’ve been hanging around together for so long that it’s just easy and comfortable. Besides, Ruby always laughs at his jokes.
Griffin is incredibly loyal to Ruby. He’ll back her 100% — even when he knows she’s wrong. Which –sadly — happens to be quite a lot of the time.
