Grace Brisbane in Shiver: She starts off kind of shy but after she meets Sam she starts to fight for what she wants and doesn't let anyone's opinion get to her.
Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games: She takes on being the head of her household after her father dies and she has to take care of her family without any warning. I don't think I would ever be able to handle something like that.
Hermione Granger in Harry Potter: She's very smart and brave, and she's not afraid to say what she thinks.
Katie in Safe Haven: Katie escapes from her abusive husband and starts her a new life thousands of miles away. That would be the scariest thing in the world for me to do, but she did it.
Amelia Bedelia: She proves that people don't always say what they mean, and that they should so people don't misunderstand and take things the wrong way. Too many people these days think they know what is going on but they really don't.
