5. Arya (Eragon)
Who doesn't love a girl who can kick some butt?
4. Katniss Everdeen (Hunger Games)
Personally she's become a role model to me. If she can stand against an entire nation give this girl a Nobel Peace Prize
3. Hermoine Granger (Harry Potter)
Friendship. 'Nuff said.
2. Willow (Angel Burn)
Half-angel going up against an entire supernatural race? How many people can say they'd do that?
1. Clarissa Fray (Mortal Instruments series)
She's suddenly plunged into a world of demons, Shadowhunters, Warlocks, etc. No explanation, no nothing. But she still manages to fight her way through.
