Middlemarch Madness

Middlemarch Madness IV: Young Adult Literary Nominations

Nominate your favorite women characters from YA literary fiction (not sci-fi, fantasy, etc.) here! 

While we encourage you to comment to offer your nominations, we whipped up a form so non-members can vote, too. You’ll have until Friday to nominate in this or any other category, and next week we’ll start narrowing the contenders down to those who’ll be in the bracket.

Middlemarch Madness contenders do not need to be the primary focus of the books they occupy. They do not even need to be protagonists. Above all else, MMM contenders are interesting female characters (not to be confused with Strong Female Characters, but there’s some overlap).

Let the nominations begin! May the odds be ever in your choice’s favor. To nominate, tell us your choice’s name, the book or book series they appeared in, and the author. You may nominate as many characters as you’d like.
