There are also many books that aren't like that. Without knowing anything about the kind of books he wants to write, how can you effectively give such specific suggestions? Just because a format is common doesn't mean it's always a good idea. A main character plus a boy and a girl is fine, but isn't appropriate for everything.

Why only three, anyway? In the book I just finished reading, as an example, there was the narrator, her brother, her father, best friend, two boys, and the narrator's mentor, plus a few other side characters that didn't appear as much as those ones. All were needed for the story. With fewer characters, the story would have been far simpler, much shorter, and a lot less interesting.
