Dear Tamora Pierce,You wrote about strong female characters who didn’t need anyone to save them. Alanna inspired me to be brave, honest and work hard. Daine reminded me to be kind to all animals.
Thayet showed me that being feminine was not a bad thing. All of the women in your series had power and strength and were well rounded.
It was because of Alanna that I understood what a period was and wasn’t as scared about being a woman as I could have been. I wouldn’t be the person I am today had I not read your books.
