Anika Dragomir (Anatomy of a Misfit, by Andrea Portes)Read about the other entries on the list.
As you can tell from the moment you meet her, third-most-popular-girl-in-school Anika Dragomir is straight-up hysterical. She’s irreverent, she’s insightful, she’s half-Romanian, and she does pretty much everything with a mind on keeping her safe spot in the school’s lineup. That includes keeping her relationship with far-more-misfit-esque Logan on the down low. Even as she’s falling for him. Even as she’s learning about the terror of his home life. Even as he remains on her mind while she’s wooed by the hottest guy in town. This book is both heartbreaking and hilarious, and will affirm that it’s never too early to stand up for what you believe and who you love.
