I know someone who's working on a school project that involves names used in books. One of the things she needs to do is find as many books as possible (fiction) with main characters called Ethan, Ryan or Casey (male). I have helped her out as much as possible, but I have only been able to come up with a few, and I was hoping maybe a few people in here can think of some books with a main charater called one of those names?

Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton....I'll have to think of some more if any come to mind. Can these be contemporary fiction as well? Ryan seems so modern to me...

I think The OC has a book series.. Ryan is a main character on there. I'm not sure if that counts though because it's based on the tv series?

Thanks everybody, I'm sure she'll be able to use those.
I also suggested the entire Jack Ryan series by Tom Clancy as there are maybe 10 books or something like that, but she said it has to be first names.
