There are so many great fiction books with strong female leads but here are 6 we chose from around the store
Hunger games - Who doesn't want to be Katniss! With her tale of rebellion against an oppressive government, She is a great inspiration to young women leaders.
To Kill a Mockingbird - Told from the perspective of a young girl named Scout Finch. The book breaks all the stereo typical roles of southern women. Scout is a courageous, smart, and independent young girl.
Pride and Prejudice - The story is set back in the 1800's, this book focuses on a variety of different women. All women portrayed in this book are intelligent, strong minded and independent. The Author, Jane Eyre, with her many amazing novels, is an inspiration to all women writers.
The Help - Strong female leads in the book! From Skeeter who wants to be a writer, to the two African-American maids, Aibileen and Minny, they join together to change the views of Women in their town and beyond. Truly inspiring.
Cinder - A great YA novel with a fairy tale spin. Cinder is a cyborg who must save the earth from her evil step-mother!
