Booklist: Quirky Characters

Quirky is good in my book. Whenever someone calls me quirky, I say, "Thank you."

My favorite quirky girls in contemporary teen lit include:

Emily in Tips for Having a Gay (Ex) Boyfriend and Love (and Other Uses for Duct Tape) by Carrie Jones

Tess in Lost It by Kristen Tracy

Alice MacLeod in Alice, I Think and the books which follow it by Susan Juby

Zoe in A Crooked Kind of Perfect by Linda Urban

Frankie in The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart

My favorite quirky fellas from contemporary teen lit include:

Charlie in A Little Friendly Advice by Siobhan Vivian

Parker in The Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson

Some of my all-time favorite books have utterly fantastic headstrong characters:

Anne Shirley from the Anne of Green Gables series by L.M. Montgomery

Turtle from The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin

Please refrain from mocking Anne's hair color or tugging on Turtle's braid.
