I love strong female characters because they mirror the girls and women in my own life. I am surrounded by amazing women and I want to see them in the books I read with my kids.
This list is subjective for sure, and only comprised of characters I have read and would read with my children. A few teen-ish books also made it onto the list because they’re books I know many tweens are already reading. (Yes, I’m looking at you Hunger Games!)
