The Lord of the Rings
I am no man!
Fantasy and young adult literature can get a bad rap sometimes, but Mia's list of some of her favorite heroines is a perfect breakdown of why strong female characters like Katniss or Divergent's Tris are so important. Reminder: you don't need to be in the target demographic to benefit from reading these character's stories, either.
