1. Alex from Delirium by Lauren Oliver
See, I would've put Lena but I feel she kind of just...fell into this whole thing with the goverment and her problem with wanting and not wanting the antidote. But Alex! Alex knew what he was getting into from the beginning, he was a rebel hidden among brainwashed believers, and I loved him for it.
2. Katniss from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
While I have very conflicted feelings over Katniss in the course of the books, she really was an iconic and important figure of rebellion!
3. Gemma from A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
Don't go looking at me weird. Gemma, living in the victorian age in a rigid and proper boarding school, managed against all odds to always remain true to herself and her magic!
4. Jacinda from Firelight by Sophie Jordan
She likes her pride! I love her commitment and love for her pride, and how against she has for her mother to move them away. She was determined to keep the draki inside her alive, regardless of the conditions in front of her.
5. Tris from Divergent by Veronica Roth
She became Dauntless even though she knew it A) Wouldn't be easy and B) Make her family sad and angry while at the same time shaming them. But she did what she had to do, but sometimes you have to be selfish!
6. Tally from The Uglies Series by Scott Westerfeld
While she did get kind of thrown into this mess, Tally becomes one of the most famous rebels her world had ever seen! She was headstrong and (most of the time) got what she wanted, even though she hit a lot of bumps along the way.
7. Katsa from Graceling by Kristin Cashore
She did not let herself be manipulated by anyone, especially her uncle. She did what she wanted, even though sometimes she wasn't exactly sure what that was.
and...that's really everyone I can think about! BUT let me know in the comments who are some of YOUR favorites!
