Best Characters From Young Adult Fiction Books


The Contenders: Page 5

81 James Carstairs (Jem) - Infernal Devices

He is precious.

82 Sirius Black


83 Sam Temple - The Gone Series

Very courageous and selfless. Leader of the FAYZ. His power of light is really cool too. - Dylaphant

Sam would beat percy jackson in a fight if they wernt near water - DZCool10

84 Xander King - House of Dark Shadows

He did much more than Harry Potter and Katniss. All Katniss did was fight people to death and fell in love with Peeta. Harry Potter was just in bad luck, and didn't do much either.

Now Xander on the other hand, saved his Grandmother and his Mother from being stuck in other time era's being enslaved. He also saved his brother, his dad, and many more people.

This guy is the best young adult character.

85 Uriah Pedrad - Divergent

Uriah is pretty cool, to be honest. One of my favorite Divergent characters.

86 Valkyrie Cain - Skulduggery Pleasant Series

More people need to know about the wonder that is Valkyrie Cain. Honestly, the sarcasm, the quips, the wise-cracks? How could you possibly NOT fall in love with her? *Unless Skulduggery Pleasant is your first true love of course :")*

You may not have read this series but this teen is AWESOME. What with her being a bad ass, elemental magic-user, violent, sarcastic, funny DETECTIVE and beater-upper of bad guys, definitely deserves a place on this list

Is this young adult fiction? I wouldn't even dream of touching Fifty Shades of Erotic Twilight Fan-Fiction.

91 Greg Heffley - Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series Greg Heffley - Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series
92 Wesley Jefferson Lincoln - Beautiful Creatures
93 Rhine Ellery - Wither
94 Will Cooper - Slammed
95 Vasilisa Dragomir - Vampire Academy
96 Sam Henry - Catching Jordan
97 Moiraine Damodred - The Wheel of Time Series

Moiraine was always my favorite. She kept everyone in check and always took charge for the better. She spent 20 years of her life trying to find Rand so that he would be safe before Tarmon Gai'don. Moiraine DIED because she knew Rand couldn't bring himself to kill a woman. She also killed a couple of Forsaken. It took me forever to get over her death, I kept convincing myself that she isn't dead, there was no proof. Maybe she did something with Lan's bond and she's still alive in the twisted doorway. Sadly, I knew that wasn't the case. She was truly the best. - Merilille

98 Kestrel Hath - The Wind Singer

If you haven't read this book (and those that follow), you are missing out. This has been my favourite book for years and it inspires me to have strength and refuse to give up. If you want a strong female character, you really don't have to look anywhere else!

99 Ramona - Scott Pilgrim
100 Gideon - Scott Pilgrim
