This one isn&#39;t muscle growth, but it is a mainstream novel about a muscular girl.<br /><br />Modern Ranch Living, by Mark Poirer<br /><br />This is the Amazon blurb.<br /><br />The action centres on a small community in Tucson, Arizona, with the disappearance of a local teenager triggering the plot. However, it&#39;s the book&#39;s principal characters that keep the reader turning the page - notably 16 year-old Kendra, the muscle-bound young girl with a bizarre grammatical habit (her favourite phrase: &quot;plussing as which&quot;) and Merv, the 30 year-old pool attendant that still lives with his mom. These characters are immediately engaging, and for all their oddities and imperfections, it is easy for the reader to empathise with them. <br /><br />And this was one of my favorite excerpts.<br /><br />By the time she hit junior high, she was worked, thick with muscle and intimidating to some of her teachers.&nbsp; Her abdominals were like six caramel apples, and her shoulders were as wide as an Olympic swimmer&#39;s.&nbsp; At home, she walked around in her sports bra, on display, pausing to flex in mirrors and snack on protein.

I read Body.&nbsp; It wasn&#39;t very appealing.&nbsp; A lot of the awful bodybuilding drug culture.

I read Body as well. There are a lot of scenes that are pretty distatesful, but I found the writing to pretty engaging. (Incidentally, the author, Harry Crews, lives in my home town of Gainesville FL).&nbsp;

If my memories are correct, there is a muscular, insanely strong female lover and protector of Hari Seldon in Asimov&#39;s Foundation series. Her name is Dors Venabili. But I don&#39;t want to spoil major details...<br /><br />But it was a long time ago, I&#39;m not entirely sure.

I'd forgotten about this one, been out of print since the earlier 80's,
might be able to locate it in a 2nd hand book store, or over on Amazon.com from a likewise source.

Titan's Daughter by James Blish

Involves genetic engineering that produces a new race of nine-foot tall, smarter, stronger, longer life spaned people.
The story revolves around the main character, (as denoted by the title) a woman.

I like a good story well told.
That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself.

_Iron Angels_ by Eric Flint and Allistaire Kimble has a physically robust female character, and the conclusion is very interesting.

Most S.M. Stirling novels feature at least one buff chick.

Yeah, I've mentioned his Draka novels in a previous post in this thread.
The two that I recall that have descriptive muscle scenes in them are "The Stone Dogs", and the spinoff book, "Drakon."

_Conquistador_ has a gym scene with a female character lifting heavy.

The Lords of Creation series had some, particularly the second novel, _In_the_Courts_of_the_Crimson_Kings_.

Another would be the Horseclans series of futuristic sword & sorcery novels by Robert Adams, which have an
Edgar Rice Burroughs-like flavor to them. Almost all of them have strong female characters, and in the latter ones has a tribe of Amazons as central aspect of the stories. The Signet paperback editions have been out of print for many yrs.

However, last time I checked @ Amazon.com, Mundania Press had resurrected the series, along w/ his Castaways in Time series.

Not a novel exactly, but there was a book for the Call of Cthulhu role playing game titled "At Your Door" (1990, 4th edition, Cthulhu Now) set in modern day that involves the players investigating a female bodybuilder who (as it turns out) has been supplementing her training with drinking the milk from a cthulhu beastie. The investigators follow a trail of reports about her growing success, eventually catching up with her at an isolated farmhouse. Her transformation becomes unfortunately (but not surprisingly) slightly more monstrous, but the adventure does include amorous advances on a male investigator. Pretty spicy for a 90's RPG.
