Day 16: Favorite female character


Where to begin? I've loved characters in books since I made my mom read Cinderella to me over and over and over and over and over. And over.


Cinderella, Maureen from the Misty of Chincoteague books, Anne Shirley, Jo March, Sara Crewe from A Little Princess, Menolly and Lessa of Pern, Meg Murry from A Wrinkle in Time, Ayla from Earth's Children, Laura Ingalls....which gets me to about age 15 or so.


No clear favorite, but there are many, many, many characters I have loved over the years. Characters who were my best friends when I needed them. Characters who inspired me when I needed inspiration; characters who comforted me when I needed comforting; characters who amused me when I needed amusing.


How can I possibly pick one above the others?
