Bella/Hermione/Katniss/Tris: Which leading lady are you?

Butt-kicking fictional females are everywhere these days, with Divergent new in theatres and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire burning up the rental charts. The leading ladies in those films are the latest in a line of strong willed, self-possessed, young-adult heroines who prove the damsel-in-distress archetype is terribly outdated. Are you rebellious like Divergent's Tris? Capable like The Hunger Games' Katniss? Boy-crazy like Twilight's Bella? Brainy like Harry Potter's Hermione? Take this quiz to find out. Once you've completed the quiz, read below to see how you scored.

Mostly As

You're Harry Potter's Hermione

But you already knew that, didn't you? Being the brightest person in the room is fun, but you know what else is fun? Letting your wand down every once in a while.

Mostly Bs

You're Hunger Games' Katniss

You've got a strong will and even stronger shoulders, which come in handy since you insist on carrying the people you love on them. Don't be afraid to be vulnerable. Not everyone is trying to poison you with toxic fog.

Mostly Cs

You're Twilight's Bella

Love might be the most important thing in life, but it's not the only thing. Pick up a new hobby. Your obsession with Mr. Right may be causing you to ignore your own ambitions.

Mostly Ds

You're Divergent's Tris

Your bravery is an admirable asset: Just remember that there's a difference between being brave and being reckless. If you want others to value you, first you have to value yourself.
