General Note: Series information from www.goodreads.com.
"[The] first in a two-book origin story of Faith, a groundbreaking, plus-sized superhero from the Valiant Entertainment comics." -- From publisher's website: harpercollins.com.
Summary, etc.: When she's not hanging out with her two best friends, Matt and Ches, Faith Herbert is volunteering at the local animal shelter or obsessing over the long-running teen drama The Grove. So far, her senior year has been spent trying to sort out her feelings for her maybe-crush Johnny and making plans to stay close to Grandma Lou after graduation. And there's the small matter of recently discovering she can fly. Then the fictional world of The Grove relocates to her town, and TV heroine Dakota Ash takes a romantic interest in Faith. But when animals, then people, begin to vanish, only Faith seems able to connect the dots to a new designer drug infiltrating her high school. -- adapted from jacket

    Faith Herbert loves superheroes. She could happily spend hours trolling online fandom boards or swapping theories about her favorite shows and comic books with her two best friends. But despite her fervor, it does come as something of a surprise when she becomes a superhero herself. She's got the tragic backstory—her parents died when she was younger, and she's been raised by her grandma—but she hasn't seen many fat superheroes represented in mainstream media. As she works on mastering her new flying abilities in between shifts at the local pet shelter, her town is thrown into chaos as popular TV show The Grove, Faith's favorite, arrives to film there and, simultaneously, people and animals start mysteriously vanishing. As Faith navigates a new and surprising romantic connection with Dakota, one of the star actresses on the show, she also can't stop herself from investigating the disappearances. Murphy shifts gears to launch this new series, based on the Valiant Comics universe, that's body positive and deliciously keyed into fandom. Readers will flock to this inclusive romp.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Murphy's best known for Dumplin' (2015), a best-seller-turned-Netflix-movie, and this latest incorporates the body positivity of that book with the perpetual popularity of superheroes. Better have a few extra copies on hand. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
