Girls Can Kick Butt Too
I've been noticing a trend in YA books.
Some girl characters, I am not saying any names, are weak. They depend fully on their love interest, and they can't stand to live one moment without them, because they are their life, and they would die if anything happened to them...and blah blah blah.
Girls are not like that in real life.
We are strong. We can hold our own, and if a dragon or two comes our way, we can slay it, with or without a hot guy on our arm.
It's the twenty-first century, people. The age of the damsel-in-distress is long gone.
Let the girl save the guy for once.
Hmm. Dude-in-distress. That has a certain ring to it, don't you think?
