Complex, Strong Female Characters

An Awesome Role Model

I particularly love who Nosek cast as the book's heroine - Ava is strong and strong-willed, independent and sharp, and she has both a clear wit and a mature understanding of her own emotions.

Refreshing

I am sure I echo many fans' feedback when I say that the female protagonist was one of the best aspects of this novel. Ava is strong, brilliant, and charismatic, and it is refreshing as a female reader to see such great qualities showcased in a book's main character.

Three-Dimensional Female Protagonist

It's wonderful to meet a three-dimensional female protagonist who doesn't fit into any of the typical boxes--she's sassy and strong, in touch with her own powerful emotions, rebellious but thoughtful.
