Teen Board Question - March 2017, Part 2

As you may or may not know, March is Women’s History Month, a time when we celebrate all the rockin’ ladies who gave their lives and efforts to making the world a much better (and more equal) place. With that in mind, we asked our Teen Board members about some of their favorite female authors or heroines, whether they are endlessly witty, fiercely strong, or always writing the perfect endings to complicated storylines. Read below to find out who they're celebrating this month.
