Carrie and I have a vast idea of what makes a Kick-Ass Heroine. Is she brave? What about loyal? How much do we value a heroine who's determined or compassionate? To cover a wider range of characters we've broken our list up by genre but even after doing that, this was a super hard list to make. We love that YA authors keep creating such strong female protagonists. Way to Kick-Ass ladies!!!
