Find Out Which Badass YA Heroine You Are! By Andie Divelbiss Find Out Which Badass YA Heroine You Are! There is nothing I love more than a complex, well-developed heroine. Even though I’ll likely never swing a sword in battle, stage a coup at a fantasy court, or go on an epic mythological quest, I can’t help but wonder which badass literary lady I’m most like. If you feel the same way, take this quiz to reveal the heroine that’s been inside you all along (and maybe your next read as well). Lei from Girls of Paper and Fire You are Lei from Girls of Paper and Fire! You’re empathetic, resilient, and adaptable. You didn’t ask to be a part of this conflict, but when the time comes to fight for what you believe in, you rise to the occasion. The power to change the world rests in your hands. What a badass! Emilia from Kingdom of the Wicked You’re Emilia from Kingdom of the Wicked! You’re driven by revenge and willing to do whatever it takes to get justice for your sister. Passionate, strategic, and inquisitive, no one will stand will your way. Not even a certain sinful prince. Nothing says badass like making (and breaking) deals with demons. Jude from The Cruel Prince You’re Jude from The Cruel Prince! You drew a tough lot, but you’ve learned how to play the game, and you’re here to win. Strategy is your birthright, and you keep your cards close to your chest until the last moment. You can make wicked fairies bend to your will, and that’s why you’re a total badass. Renata from Incendiary You’re Renata from Incendiary! It often seems like no one trusts you and you trust no one. Despite that burden, you’ll go to the ends of the earth and into the lion’s den for the people you care about. Even if it means facing the demons you thought you left behind. You’re true badass material. Karou from Daughter of Smoke and Bone You’re Karou from Daughter of Smoke and Bone! Your heritage is a mystery, but no one could question your character.

Daphne from Daughter of Sparta You’re Daphne from Daughter of Sparta! You might have a competitive streak, but for good reason. Even the gods took notice of your badassery. Only someone with your steely resolve could navigate the treacherous waters of performing favors for Greek gods and working alongside Apollo himself. Miriam from Briarheart You’re Miriam from Briarheart! You’re loyal and true, and you know your way around a sword. Family is the most important thing in your life.

What motivates you? Time for a journey. What are you bringing? You’ve got skills for days! What’s your biggest asset? Every heroine has one.
