  2. ANNABETH. I love her! And Hermione's a given, of course. Ramona's a great choice, too; I kind of wish I'd thought to include her. So many options!

    Great list. :)

  3. Good list. I love Annabeth, Hermione and Violet as well.

  4. I've forgotten about Turtle Wexler! The shin-kicking, stock market whiz little girl! Violet and Matilda are wonderfully tough kids geniuses too. I have Katniss and Hermione on my list as well. :)
