Best Young Adult Fantasy/Science Fiction Series With Amazing Female ProtagonistsTheOverreactingFangirl
The Top Ten
She's one of the more real YA protagonists I've read about. I'm not really into YA fiction, but I've read a few series (Divergent, THG, Harry Potter, CoB, 13 Reasons Why, etc. ), and I'll be honest... a lot of the time, I didn't feel connected to the main character. Hannah Baker seemed a little arbitrary to me, Katniss was just way too shallow, etc, etc, etc, but Tris was different. Now I'm not saying she's the best character of all time in the history of books ever - because that would be a blatant lie, but for a YA protagonist, she wasn't that bad. She's just a brave, selfless young woman who's not really sure what to do with her life. These are the flaws that humanized her. Although my favorite YA protagonist is Harry, Tris is probably as good as female protagonists get (coming from a girl with no intention to be sexist! ).
I love her character development. She goes from being a little shy and weak to being brave, smart, and ambitious. Tris/Six is awesome!
I love how brave she is! She never cries unless she has too, never whines, doesn't argue, and ALWAYS gets her hands dirty! - TheOverreactingFangirl
Clary is funny, brave, and is always willing to keep her family and friends safe even if it means she gets injured by doing so! Plus the way she pretends to hate Jace is HILARIOUS! Especially since she obviously has a crush on him! - TheOverreactingFangirl
Clary is brave at times and definitely a relatable character, but as a main female protagonist, she's not my favorite. I mean, all she does is pass out in the hands of the villain. It's great if the villain is your dad or brother, but that's not always the case.
Clary Fray is an immense role model for anyone - witty, brave and a real fighter. Don't see why she isn't number one yet!
One of my favourite characters. Clary is brave, artistic and a true friend and will always try to do goodV 3 Comments
Wow... Katniss is just... Wow... She's tough, brave, caring, and deadly! Her signature weapon is the bow and arrow and she never chooses anything else to fight with! She loves her sister to death and cares about Peeta and Gale! Plus there's a MAJOR love triangle - TheOverreactingFangirl
Oh come on, who doesn't LOVE Katniss? - Fandom_Lover
Wow, that nickname suits you, TheOverreactingFangirl! Laugh out loud. I like your list! - keyson
I like how she isn't a girly girl and doesn't cry over anything and never cares about getting dirty! She'd do ANYTHING to protect her family and friends! - TheOverreactingFangirl
She never trusts ANYONE even if it's her best friend/boyfriend Thomas whom she's known since she was in 4th Grade! - TheOverreactingFangirl
Hermione is the Smartest Witch of Her Age. She killed many Death Eaters, helped found horcruxes and is at the top of her class. She needs to at least be in the top three - FavoriteFightingFrenchman
Cassia is sweet, caring, and is the leader of the rebellion that starts in the second book which seems pretty badass! - TheOverreactingFangirl
Annabeth is just spectacular. She is immensely brave and strong.
Despite not having a cool "power" like the other demigods, Annabeth is cool with her wisdom and kick-butt fighting skills.
Her love for Percy is adorable. How she went searching for him for the months he was missing, her devotion to him was so cool.
She's just.. Relatable, I guess
Like how is she not number 1
Tessa is so inspiring! She should be number 1
She's June and she's the best. Legend for life.V 1 Comment
Sure, (Spoiler) she died, but you can't say she ain't the lead gal! She was from the start, and she deserves to resurrected in the movie! - Fandom_Lover
From the Lunar Chronicles! Amazing! But not as amazing as Tris, Katniss, or Maximum!
Hazel isn't my favourite but I have to say that her brave nature is very inspiring
Lena was one of my first female heros I read in a book so inspiring
