Thumbs up for The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett. Fantasy.
The first volume of my all-time favorite fantasy series: ergo one of my favorite books. I am, for better or worse, Tiffany Aching. (Though instead of string, I carry a retractable tape measure and a scarf, both of which can serve the purpose of string but also have other uses.)
“Yes,” said a voice, and Tiffany realized it was hers again. The anger rose up joyfully. “Yes! I’m me! I am careful and logical and I look up things I don’t understand! When I hear people use the wrong words, I get edgy! I am good with cheese. I read books fast! I think! And I always have a piece of string! That’s the kind of person I am!”
