Bay of Fires, my most recently reviewed book, gave me the perfect excuse to dedicate a post to brilliant characters named Sarah. Here’s the countdown:
5. Sarah Avery in Bay of Fires tells people what she thinks and fights to live another day.
and then there’s…
4. Sarah Manning in Orphan Black, thieving punk rocker with a heart of gold:
3. Sara Crewe in Frances Hodgson Burnett’s A Little Princess: she’s a bit sickly sweet but in the end this hardworking little girl has earned your respect.
2. Sarah Connor, kickarse of Terminator fame (including as played by the inimitable Lena Headey in the underrated tv series, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles)
and the winner…
1. Sarah from Labyrinth!
(ok, see also: the way Goblin King David Bowie says her name.)
LABYRINTH SPOILERS! This is from the end of the movie. If you have not seen Labyrinth by now it is recommended that you do so immediately .
