Females were widely celebrated by a lot of authors. A fair share of heroines with “I-ain’t-gonna-take-any-shit” exist through prints. And here’s my top three picks of heroines with kickass attitudes.
1. Linh Cinder (Cinder)
Linh Cinder is a lot of things: the towns best mechanic, a stepdaughter who solely provides for her family of four, the face of the rebellion, technically the rightful queen of the moon, and above all, a cyborg. Despite all these roles she play, she also didn’t forget to fall in love. Talk about multitasking.
2. Princess Mia (The Princess Diaries)
Mia is your average goody-two-shoes nerd with oversized glasses and braces. People barely notice her. But a shock worth a lifetime came through her door when she learned that her deceased father is the king of Genovia making her the present ruler of the said kingdom. Mia don’t want to be queen, but she still claim her throne knowing that there’s a big responsibility that came with it.
3. Juliette Ferrars (Ignite Me)
Her parents exiled her in an asylum, everybody thinks that she is a monster. Juliette may be broken and naive about the world, but she still embraces her unique ability. Trying to save the world, she even gave herself a chance and her tormentor to fall in love with each other. She may be acting and feeling frail, but inside she’s indestructible.
