I always liked Lara but then I was supposed to. Apparently, she was based on a girl Pullman knew when he was growing up. She threw river mud too.

Probably my initial dislike of her was due to her not being likeable. Lyra is the first female lead in a YA book who wasn't nice. Boys could be horrible and still be heroes, but I can't recall an earlier girl who wasn't charming as well as spirited and scrappy: cf. Nancy Drew's unfailing politeness.
