- Rhett Butler (Gone with the Wind) – Rhett marched to his own music and had plenty of style doing it.
- Neville Longbottom (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) – This was a great book for Neville. We knew he always had it in him and when he emerged from the portrait his legacy as a rebel was indisputable.
- Elphaba Thropp (Wicked) – Even though we liked the musical 1000 times better than the book, it’s still impossible to ignore Elphaba’s spirit. She definitely knew how to Defy Gravity!
- Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games) – With the help of Peeta, this remarkable girl inspired all of Dystopian North America to take action against an evil regime.
- Guy Montag (Fahrenheit 451) – Guy may very well be the most noble of all the rebels considering his stance against book burning
- The Help (The Help) – With only a few chapters left to go, it seems appropriate that we should include Aibileen, Minny, and Skeeter in this week’s list. What a good book (so far)!
- Equality 7-2521 (Anthem) – This unique character was willing to risk everything for freedom and love.
- Aliena (Pillars of the Earth) – She rebelled against some of the most wickedly vile males in all of literature – over and over and over again.
- Winston Smith (Nineteen Eighty-Four) – Anyone brave enough to rebel against Big Brother deserves a spot on our list.
Have a great week and head on over to The Broke and the Bookish to join the fun!
