I asked for books that featured female characters who were leaders to include in my 
grant application for a Girl Leadership project.  Thanks to the wonderful 
suggestions! Several of the titles below came from  Here are the 
directions I received for finding titles of this type:  "If you go to and click on Find a Book in the top right hand corner, then scroll 
down and choose the keyword girlpower from the list of keywords.  Check the box and 
then hit Search.  It will generate a list for you.  Since you're looking for books 
for teens, I would also select Older Reader from the Reading Level drop down menu.  
If you have Older Reader selected and the keyword girlpower selected, then hit 
Search and see if that gives you some ideas.
