Raph♛ what on earth is zoey redbird doing in this list!?????? o.O


message 3: by Bart (new)

Bart Boge Would participants/mods of this list consider the title Regarding Tiberius for inclusion? The novel is narrated by its main female protagonist, Helena, who is as strong, as cunning, and as formidable as any other heroine on this list.


message 4: by Elisa (new)

Elisa M. Harry Potter has a lot of strong female characters (from McGonagall to Luna), but the protagonist is a boy.


message 5: by Madeline (new)

Madeline Warner THE Bloody Jack SERIES BY L.A. Meyer SHOULD BE ON HERE JACKY IS SOOO BADASS

What about Hermione Granger? I think she's one of the main characters and so it counts, no?
