come to think of it, had it been Sarah was as childish as the way Myrah was in her time then automatically she could have faced much problems and the strong heart could not be deserving her

Strong Heart would actually be her first name. She's endured so much pains. Her life is engulfed in pain circles but she doesn't get discouraged. Bear in mind her age and gender; 13 years and a female respectively.

She definitely did deserve the name I mean comparing her to her mates, the things she did were not normal. She was even the youngest but still stood out very strong. In fact the title of the book fits perfectly well because of her character; in my opinion.

I definitely think so. She's gone through a lot. There was lots of perseverance. Also, she must have been physically strong too.

First, I really loved the names that she gave to her compatriots. The only one that threw me off was Angry, as she seemed anything but. I think Strong Heart was a well-deserved name. That child was fierce! The youngest of her group, she even seemed to show the adults what it meant to be and adult at times, and she was determined to survive and thrive. Well deserving of her name!

Strong heart is fully deserving of the name. Sarah shows tremendous perseverance and determination at various points in the story. Not only Sarah, other characters show similar qualities for the cause they believe in thus making it a book fully deserving of its name.

Strong Heart is deserving of her name. Not only is she courageous and determined, her heart is in the right place. Even though she is young, she is devoted to the people around her and is able to see into their true natures. This quality is all the more remarkable because, with no say in the matter, she was taken to live among strangers.

Most definitely. She is just a kid, but she is very resilient, and she displays great emotion despite her traumatic past.
