In my new YA series outline, I'm thinking of having the first book switch between 3 POVS, but one of the charas. dies and so I figured the remaining books would be 2 POVs, or I'd introduce a new character to replace the old one. Thoughts?

Sounds fine to me. In my YA BAND trilogy, the first two books were in the POVs of Mark, Tracie, and Sienna. The third book was in the POV of Mark's girlfriend, Tracie, and Sienna. I think it was refreshing to use a new POV character.

Oh good! Thank you Debby G. I'm feeling a lot better about my series' set up now that I know someone's done it before and it works.
