She's one of the main characters from Philip Reeve's Mortal Engines Quartet, known in the States as the Hungry City Chronicles. Its quite possibly the best steampunk series of all time. Hester herself is the most badass chick in all of steampunk; she kills a dude with a typewriter at one point in the series. Oh, and she has a massive scar from a sword swipe that took out her eye and most of her nose at age 7.

Woo. Another one to ad; Airborn, by Kenneth Oppel. It's main character is basically Deryn with balls. Seriously. Matt Cruise and Deryn Sharp are SCARRILY similar.

At least you have ones to look forward too. I get a new book and I'm done with it in a day or so.

That's how I usually am, but I've been pretty horrible lately with actually reading when I have time to read :P The band season is over, though, so I should have time now xD

I don't, I just join a bunch of stuff so it looks like I do xD
Being in band is an alternative to having friends. Or homework time. Or sleep.

Ah, the old nerd standby of activity-hording.
And we're literary nerds. We're like the most badass characters; we don't need sleep.

That works. Like how I used to nap in my gym locker during class. I'm not the most athletic person, and several of the dudes in my class obviously used SOMETHING cause they were HUGE. So, instead of getting outrun by sweaty high schoollers, I just went to my locker and napped till class ended.

My gym class consisted of me, two of the biggest players on the football team, the two best players on the basketball team, a few hockey players, and most of the varsity field hockey team. I had the best grade in the class :D
