Can anyone think of any YA books/series with a heroine who does not end up with a boyfriend or girlfriend at the end?

There’s that quote (that I am badly paraphrasing);” Books teach boys to go on adventures and girls how to get a boyfriend.”

And, I want to be able to have a list of where girls get to have adventures and learn self-worth and that they’re beautiful, smart, brave, etc without it being tied to a significant other.

Have you really read all those books in your room?”

Alaska laughing- “Oh God no. I’ve maybe read a third of ‘em. But I’m going to read them all. I call it my Life’s Library. Every summer since I was little, I’ve gone to garage sales and bought all the books that looked interesting. So I always have something to read.

Blue: For the calming peace she found from the mountain climb.

Green: For the freedom she must fight for, so she can once more call him “mine”.
