"Patricia kicks butt. She stows away on a ship and quickly discovers that the world is a far more complicated and dangerous place than she'd anticipated. But she manages to survive wars, pirates, and epidemics in this fast-paced, intelligent historical fiction book. The historical details in this book are amazing, and Patricia's character is both intriguing and realistic."
"Clara Luna journeys to Oaxaca, Mexico to discover her heritage. The use of setting in this book is stunning, and the sense of adventure is delicious. Once you start this book, you won't be able to put it down. Clara is funny, perceptive, smart, and adventuresome. And the physical and spiritual journey she goes on is one that you won't soon forget. Also check out Resau's latest book, Red Glass."
"Erin Swift (awesome name) is funny, quirky, and completely memorable. From the first day of school when she punches Serena Worthington to writing her extremely insightful blog, Erin is both surprising and realistic. The voice in this book is wonderful."
"All of Lauren Myracle's books have awesome female protagonists (she's best known for the TTYL series --which is great and very quick to read). But Kissing Kate has my favorite character. Okay, I like the main character in her Rhymes with Bitches, too. Like I said, it's hard to pick one."
