Submitted by Jack Yan.
I will show you five. :)
Betsy Ray (of the Betsy-Tacy books by Maud Hart Lovelace)
Ramona Quimby (of the Ramona books by Beverly Cleary)
Alice McKinley (from the Alice books by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor)
Anastasia Krupnick (from the Anastasia series by Lois Lowry)
Anne Shirley (from the Anne of Green Gables series by L. M. Montgomery)
Great female heroines are a must in any young girl’s reading life. These five are characters who have felt like friends my entire life, and were created with such skill they feel like real people.
