Olivia, 15, reviews the Pendragon Adventure Series by D.J. MacHale

One of my favorite book series is The Pendragon Adventure series byD.J. MacHale. The books are about an average teenager named BobbyPendragon—at least, he thinks he's an average teenager. One day he findsout that he's really a Traveler, and that he must embark on a journey through space and time to help save the universe! The books are fast-paced, funny, original, and well-written. I also really like thatalthough the main character is a boy, there are plenty of important female characters, and they're almost all portrayed very positively. In many male-centric books, women are stupid, weak, or just plain evil. In the Pendragon books, the women are smart, resourceful, strong, and just as important to the story as the men. The first book is called The Merchant Of Death—go pick it up, I promise you won't be able to put it down.

I'd rather be evil .
It can also mean a girl is strong.
