I’ve really gotten into YA science fiction lately and have enjoyed the crazy robot/genetically altered characters a ton. Those crazies.

Top 10 Favorite Characters in YA Science Fiction
1Lena (Delirium)- Although she makes some crazy decisions, I love Lena’s boldness. She’s a fighter.
2Cinder (Cinder)- I love everything about this lovable cyborg – especially her love of her sister. And her metal foot.
3Shay (Uglies)- He’s really the most redeeming character in the whole series. He just fell in love with the wrong crazy lady.
4Elliot (For Darkness Shows the Stars)- Elliot stands up for what she thinks is right, despite defying her family to do it. Plus she’s against the subversion of another culture/race.
5Zoe (Glitch)- Zoe was the best in Glitch, I think. Discovering tastes and feelings and learning what falling in love for the first time is like.
6Arthur Dent (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy)- Arthur is hilarious!! If you want a great laugh, read these books. They can be a bit silly, but they’re totally worth it.
7Perry (Under the Never Sky)- He’s a Savage and don’t you forget it. I just love him and his tribe and his powers.
8Felicia (Level 2)- It’s weird because Felicia is determined and vulnerable all at the same time. Although her story is fragmented and crazy, it really worked.
9Ky (Matched)— I got really annoyed with the second book and haven’t actually finished the series. Ky’s the only one I liked so far, though. Ugh.
10Scarlet (Scarlet)— This is probably cheating, but Scarlet was another kick-ass heroine in the Cinder series. Meyer knows what she’s doing?
