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!


My boys are young (5 & 6), but my 6 year old is only a foot shorter than me right now. This momma is also going to be in the same boat as you!

Van dinosaur what you put sounds like what I thought as well!

I don't think i ever have it much thought. They are all taller and i just make it up as i go depending on where they are in the story. Sometimes, the boys seem a little taller or shorter depending on if they are comforting her, saving her, it reprimanding her

This is perfect, I was just re-reading Introductions to try and get my own height chart in place for them. xD It's just something that stuck in my mind, and wouldn't go away until I found a solution for it. 

 

I was trying to place Sang around my own height/size (5'6"ish, size 0/2, since they always say she's so tiny), but that didn't make sense. It seemed too tall. So in my mind, I see her as being a little short, and more petite than I am. 

 

The boys heights make sense in the chart too - most of they guys I know are just below or taller than 6', so that's kind of my "average" that I place guys at. So of course, I picture most of the guys being that tall, or much taller, in Silas' case especially.

Keep in mind FEMALES can grow until about 21 and MALES can grow until 25.

I like to think of all the boys as quite tall compared to Sang as its so cute when they hug her and make her feel all safe

I agree with the boys would be taller near the 5'10 or 5'11 mark, not only because it's their actual height but also because the Academy gave them the confidence or ability to appear taller and bring about the correct posture or position to even appear taller than they are....Does that make sense???

I have always just considered Sang being my height, but now I think about it even if Silas was 2.5 heads taller, he wouldn't be considered very tall.
I now know how tall Luke and Mr B are, so thank you Beth for starting this chat!

I like your list ... with one exception ... I would assume that Nathan was taller than Luke, so i would revert their heights, making Luke 6.0 and Nathan 6.2 - Just because of the "sporty/athletic" vision that i have of him  -
Also i would see the duo Gabe/Luke more on the same level, they are like twins of different parents, like Thing 1 and Thing 2 ..... so i imagine them being on similar heights.... not too much difference between 5.9 and 6.0  ----  

And i'm thinking that Sang is around 5.2/5.3 max .... being considered so small by all of them. 

Thank you Bethw, the height thing was also eating me alive    .... hehe


and the list i'm refering to is Vandinosaur8 ...... my cat press enter before i completed my revision ..... sigh

I agree with Vandinosaur8 for the most part. It's a good estimate :)

I'm so glad I wasn't the only one!  As I was re-reading the books before HoK, I had these same thoughts going through my head.  Silas's hugs, where he lifts her up with an arm under her butt only made me wonder more.  I'm 5'3", and I've dated a guy that was 6'2"...and felt engulfed in his hugs.  I cannot imagine hugging someone that was an additional 6" taller than that.  You'd be staring at his stomach with a "normal" hug!

I'd finally (in my mind) put the "half a head" and "head" taller as best guestimates on her part, or hoped that Victor, Gabe, and Luke had a growth spurt coming up.  I can live with them being 5'8"...but that's the shortest I can live with mentally (lol) and that would put Silas as mammoth at 7'.

(I have a cousin that's 6'8" - he gets noticed way too frequently for his height.  I would have thought someone would have commented on Silas's height in one of the books if he was even taller than that.)

When I looked up "a head taller" it said like 8-10 inches

I like the idea of Sang being 5'3" and that a few of the guys will still grow a little more in the next year or so. Gabe is turning 16 when the books get to his birthday so I think there is still a chance for him to grow a bit taller.

Hmmm... Heights are a crazy thing to me. One of my uncles grew 2-3 inches after he joined the navy making him 6'6 1/2". My other uncle was 6'5. I'm 5'8 and my hubby is 5'6. Our two daughters are 5'2 and 5'3. I was thinking of Sang being around my daughter's height and Kota being around my husband's (leaving room to grow). It's just easy to see that in my head because I have references.   :)​

I'm hoping that a couple of the shorter guys go through a smidgen of a growth spurt at some point, but I do like that Sang is quite a bit shorter than all of them.  :)

This is what my friend and I think their heights are!

 

Sang-5'1.5"

Kota-5'10"

Victor- 5'6"

Silas -6'5"

Nathan- 5'10"

Gabe- 5'6"

Luke- 5'10"

North-6'3"

Sean- 5'10"

Owen- 6'0"

 

These heights are in comparison to what height we see Sang as.

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
