Young Adult books with good female characters

If you’ve ever read, or watched, Harry Potter you’ll know that it’s Hermione who frequently saves the day and who keeps Harry on the correct path. She inspires him, supports him, and often pulls him into his destiny. And she does it all while being portrayed as a silly girl.

Harry Potter is one of the recommendations by this article as ones where you can find good female leading characters in young adult books. Other recommendations you may recognize include City of Ember and Code Name Verity.

I would add an oldie… a real oldie: Little Women.

Now, let’s write more!
