So... I couldn't find Luke or Owen's heights, so I started this long post with math, trying to figure out everyone's height. (I finally found references in the bio cheat sheet.) Since they're all in reference to Sang's height... and the only reference to Sang's height is that Silas and North call her "tiny" and she is "Small enough that Victor thinks she's very young in his first scene with her" (per the bio cheat sheet).

 

So... any idea how tall Sang might actually be? If she really is tiny, that makes Victor and Gabriel pretty short, too. If she's more average, that could make Silas and North more freakishly tall than most of us think.

 

Yes, I know I'm totally over-thinking this. It's either that or re-read the series for the I-don't-know-how-many-th time.

 

Oh, and in case anyone wants the inside baseball math on the heights, I can copy/paste it.

I think that Sang is a bit more average height, and just more petite in stature, maybe 5'4"-5'6". I think that Silas and North are both on the really tall side because I feel like I remember it being mentioned that Silas towered above lots of the other students as Ashley Waters as well. I could be mistaken, but that is always how I picture Sang and the guys.

And find your shoulder to light on
To bring you Love, Luck, and Happiness
Today, Tomorrow, and Beyond.

Silas and North do stick out at the high school because of their heights. And, even an average height girl would be "tiny" to them. However, Victor originally thought she was "very young"... was that a height or a build thing, or both?

 

OK... so here's the rundown on heights from the cheat sheet and the books:

 

Kota: "a head taller than Sang"

Victor: "half a head taller than Sang"

Silas: "a head and a half taller than Kota"

Nathan: about Kota's height

Gabriel: about Victor's height

Luke: half a head taller than Sang (I really thought he'd be taller... at least he is, in my head)

North: almost as tall as Silas

Sean: about Kota's height

Owen: a little taller than Kota

 

Also... a "head" is considered 7-8". So... depending on Sang's height... the guys "shorter range" (say, if she's 5'2" and we use 7 inches) could be 5'6"-5'7" (Victor, Gabe, and Luke) to 6'4" (Silas), and the taller range (if she's 5'6" and we use 8") could be 5'10" to 7'... that's a HUGE difference...

 

yeah, I know... nitpick much?

CL said this about height estimates in the books:
Ô I didn't give height estimates with the guys or Sang. I never mention how tall she is, but she guesses their heights based on what she sees. And, everyone is taller than her. So, like for Victor, take your own height, add a handful of inches, and that's how tall he is. And, you'll all be right.

Also remember somewhere it's stated that Marie is about a foot taller than Sang. 

Even if the  "about" is more like 7-8 inches, and Marie is really tall  (like 6 ft.  -ish), that puts Sang under 5'4".  

Honestly I want her to be at least 5'2" because I want all the guys to be taller.

This is because I am thisclose to being 6' myself and tall guys are a rarity in my live , LOL

 

I wouldn't mind seeing the math BTW  :)

I don't mind not knowing exactly. I feel like I can put myself in Sangs place easier. You roughly know how much taller the boys are than you and go with it!

I am only 5'2" myself, so I feel like I can pretty easily put myself in her place. I would think she only maybe has a couple inches on me.

Beth thank you for this post.  I thought my obsession with series was going over the top when I started rereading introductions just to get the approximate heights.  It feels good to know that I am not the only one.  In my head, I am thinking that Sang is about 5' 2" - 5' 3"

These are the heights that I have in my head for everybody:

 

Sang: 5'4"

Kota: 5'11"

Victor: 5'8"

Silas: 6'8"

Nathan: 6'0"

Gabriel: 5'9"

Luke: 6'2"

North: 6'5"

Dr. Green: 6'0"

Mr. Blackbourne: 6'2"

 

I had wondered for a while what their heights might be so I used the references in the books and estimated on my own. Mr. Blackbourne didn't really get a height reference so I kinda just guestimated. Hope this helps.

I like this spread. These heights seem to work with the story. 

I'm giving up on make Sang closer to my height in my imagination because it just isn't feasible. I have discovered other series where the heroine/main character is tall, so I'll let Sang be short.

Consider also, Sang and the 7 guys are 15/16 years old. They may still have some growth spurts ahead of them. That would mix things up, if some of them changed positions on the comparative height chart!

Don't over think it. I am 5' 7". I have a 17 year son who is 6'3" and a 18 year old son who is 6' 4". It's feaseable. They can still have grow up to 21 years old!

Vandinosaur, those sound like good heights, maybe that's why Silas and North are always lifting her off the floor or she lays her head on their chest and not in the neck area

I am thoroughly impressed with all the work that went into figuring this out and this definitely helps me picture them better :)

The only problem with putting myself in her shoes is that I'm 5'9 so I picture all the guys being over 6' ft cause I picture then all being taller lol. And then I have to remember they are only sophomores in high school not like 18 to 20 somethings so probably much shorter than I thought lol
