Reading this book as a kid changed my life. Alanna kicks off an entire universe of strong, funny, brave, and complex female protagonists, along with a supporting cast that feel like old friends at this point. In her first adventure, Alanna dresses herself up as her twin brother and embarks on her journey to become a knight. Tamora Pierce writes the kind of books that you come back to over and over again. If you’ve never ventured into Tortall, enjoy your journey. If you have, maybe it’s time to return.
