so, i am a freshman in highschool and so far we have read Catcher in the Rye, Of Mice and Men, and we are about to start Lord of the Flies. as you may or may not have noticed, they are all amzing books written my amazing authors. Male authors, might i add. My question is... Does anyone know of an amazingly good female novelist? My teacher recommended Little Women, and then... Beth Berge or something alone those lines. I am not heavy into hard reading... more simplistic reading is more my style (like Catcher in the Rye... oh i LOVE that book!). I don't know if such writing exsists. I am interested in writing and i love to and all, but i don't know of any majorly famous female authors that are famous for one or more of their novels. Any help will be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks so much!
