If a female character kicks ass, she’s overpowered. If a female character can’t defend herself, she’s unnecessary. If a female character acts nice, she’s boring. If a female character acts mean, she’s a bitch. If a female character shows no emotion, she’s heartless. If a female character shows emotion, she’s weak. What can a female character do without being criticized mercilessly?

YAAAAASSSSS!!! I bought my first copy of the book at the book fair when I was 8 myself (I figured since it had ‘age 8’ in the title, and I was that age, then I needed to read it), and I just connected so much with Ramona. It’s like she was me, you know? I’ve read all the other books in the series, but that one is the one that really stuck with me.
