I Wish I Had a Mother Quiz

Mother’s Day has come and gone, but these fictional characters never had the chance to know their mothers.  Leave the number and title in the comments.  There are books and movies in this quiz.

No copying from other commenters or googling – that’s cheating and no fun!  Here are more details and the current Leaderboard.  I welcome first timers, you still have a chance to win a prize.

Each question is worth 10 points and because I’m so late you have until Friday morning to submit answers.
