I am very excited to be a part of the Hunted Blog Tour! Author Cheryl Rainfield is stopping by today with an awesome guest post, plus there's a giveaway! I LOVED Hunted and you can find out why by reading my review.
Caitlyn is a telepath in a world where having any Paranormal power is illegal. Caitlyn is on the run from government troopers, who can enslave, torture, or even kill her, or make her hunt other Paranormals. When Caitlyn settles down in a city, she falls for Alex, a Normal (someone without Paranormal powers), which is dangerous because he can turn her in. And she discovers renegade Paranormals who want to destroy all Normals. Caitlyn must decide whether she's going to stay in hiding to protect herself, or take a stand to save the world.
My Top 10 YA Heroines

And I also had to include these top favorite middle grade heroes:
Creel from DragonSlippers by Jessica Day George
Anne from Anne ofGreen Gables by LM Montgomery
Anna from From Anna by Jean Little
Julie from Julie by Cora Taylor
Amy from OrdinaryPrincess by MM Kaye
Wren from Wren to theRescue by Sherwood Smith
Rachel from The Pigsare Flying by Emily Rodda
All of these strong-girl characters overcome great odds, fight against the various forms of oppression, sexism, abuse, and/or threat that they face, and never give up. They come out stronger than ever, and they are all emotionally good characters who you enjoy rooting for. I love all of these characters and all of these books, and if you haven't read some of them, I recommend picking them up!
