31 Times People Shouted, “YAAS, QUEEN!” While Reading

13. Jane Eyre, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

Jane Eyre is absolutely my favorite literary heroine. She sees herself as nothing less than an equal to Rochester, nor to anyone else for that matter, even though her heritage and her looks had given her no such claim in that era. And when faced with the most difficult of situations, Jane holds steadfast to her values and never gives up her independence, only acting as she chooses to. —pandaroooo

14. Ramona Quimby, Beezus and Ramona by Beverly Cleary

In a lot of older children’s books, little girls are supposed to be seen and not heard. Ramona threw that out the window. She is brash, while still being kind, and she doesn’t give a shit about what other people think about her. She presents a character that little girls can easily identify with. —jabberbox1234

15. Hazel Grace, The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

She had the courage to love when she thought she was dying. Then she lost her true love and had to go on without what she had thought to be her only reason to live. —kirstinguardian
