The kid part makes it more inspiring. She definitely deserves it.

As stubborn as her grandfather is, that name was quite deserved. She outrun the other women both in wisdom and strength. This book deserves the title too.

After reading the book do you think that Strong Heart deserves her name? Why do you think that?
I do believe that Strong Heart deserved her name. She was able to learn quickly, survive harsh conditions, learn to utilize the thrower and save lives, and more. I was proud of Sarah as Strong Heart. How many of us could have done as well as she did?

Absolutely. She went through kidnnaping and grappled with the deadly obstacles of her journey without a single complaint. That’s the kind of determantion and resolution you’d fine in any hero.

She deserved her name because all characters were courageous especially Sarah and Myra they faced and overcame all the challenges.

Yes she does, as she survived the horrors of her journey and came out relatively unscathed, but on top

Yes, and it is unusual to see a teenage girl as a hero. Her heroism is catching and liking in the story of her life portrayed here and interesting too

The name is okay for the storyline. The main character really does have a strong heart. Although I also agree some other names can still be cooked up for the book.
