The Monday Poll: Your Favorite Historical Fiction Heroines

Illustration from The Quiver of Love, courtesy of The British LibraryGood morning, Hub readers!

Last week, we asked about your favorite tech-related teen read, in honor of YALSA’s Teen Tech Week. The top choice, with 25% of the vote, was Ready Player One by Earnest Cline, followed closely by Feed by M.T. Anderson, which took 24% of the vote. Little Brother by Cory Doctorow garnered 16% of the vote, and you can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted, and we hope you had a great Teen Tech Week!

This week, we’re turning our attention to the fact that March is Women’s History Month. As a tie-in to this important celebration of influential women through the ages, we’d like to hear who about favorite female characters in YA historical fiction. There are lots to choose from! Vote in the poll below, or leave your suggestions in the comments.

  1. Maura from Beyond the Western Sea by Avi. She’s responsible and prudent; she’s frightened and brave. She’s proud and humble. She has a beautiful relationship with her brother, she slaps the boy who swindled her, and she tells Nathaniel she won’t forget him but he has to get to know her for herself, not her father’s story. She promises Bridy’s mother that she’ll adopt her. Even though she’s never seen a machine before, she goes to the factory and starts working.

  2. Anne Shirley! She becomes a teenager in the first book, Anne of Green Gables, and continues on through high school and college in the next 2 books. She’s smart, stubborn, and a dreamer!
