A lot of times in books and movies, I come across female protagonists I don't really care for. Either they're playing the "I'm so tough, look at me," or the "I'm so fragile, please help," card that I'm pretty picky about them. Hermione is so different, though. She's intelligent, funny, righteous, loyal, awkward at times, and a beautiful soul. She's one of the best role models for girls I've seen come around in a long time. I love Hermione.
