20 of Our Favorite YA Novels: Who Should Play the Lead?

Lady Katsa from Graceling - Shailene Woodley

Lady Katsa is one of the most beloved characters in recent YA fantasy, and for good reason! She's tough as nails and just completely kick ass in practically every way. For a role like that, we need an actress who is capable of playing strong, and Shailene Woodley is just right for the part. She gained a lot of attention for starring alongside George Clooney in The Descendants, and even managed to grab a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress and won the Independent Spirit Award in the same category.
