Nat Luurtsema’s ‘Girl Out of Water’ is hands down the funniest book of the year so far, but we couldn’t leave Lou alone on that pedestal. Here are some more hilarious leading ladies of YA.
Girls are funny too, y’all!
‘The Princess Diaries’ by Meg Cabot
Mia’s road to royalty is far from smooth. Friendship troubles, confusing boys and embarrassment right in the public eye – Mia is hilarious.
‘Have a Little Faith’ by Candy Harper
Faith will make you properly snort with laughter. She’s ridiculous, bossy and completely charming with it. Each book in this series will brighten any dreary day.
‘Waiting for Callback’ by Perdita and Honor Cargill
Elektra’s forays into the world of acting are often super cringe-worthy and we can’t help but love her for it! She’s a good egg.
‘Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging’ by Louise Rennison
The late, great Louise Rennison created one of the best and funniest characters in YA with the inimitable Georgia Nicolson. We can’t even think about her without snorting with laughter…
‘The It Girl’ by Katy Birchall
Anna will stumble into your life, pulled along by her equally crackers dog Dog, and you won’t want her to leave! Even when she does something silly.
‘Girl Out of Water’ by Nat Luurtsema
Lou may be the new girl on the block but she’s funny, sweet and charming enough to give these other girls a run for their money.
