Примечание редактора

Plus-sized superhero…

Julie Murphy (“Dumplin’”) pens the origin story of Valiant Comics’ plus-sized superhero Faith Herbert. In it, Faith has to deal with the disappearance of pets and then people in her town, all while she basks in the attention of her favorite show’s main star, Dakota Ash, and grapples with her sexuality.

Описание

From Julie Murphy, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dumplin', comes the first in a two-book origin story of Faith, a groundbreaking, plus-sized superhero from the Valiant Entertainment comics.

Faith Herbert is a pretty regular teen. When she's not hanging out with her two best friends, Matt and Ches, she's 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. Of course, there's also that small matter of recently discovering she can fly….

When the fictional world of The Grove crashes into Faith's reality as the show relocates to her town, she can't believe it when TV heroine Dakota Ash takes a romantic interest in her.

But her fandom-fueled daydreams aren't enough to distract Faith from the fact that first animals, then people, have begun to vanish from the town. Only Faith seems able to connect the dots to a new designer drug infiltrating her high school.

But when her investigation puts the people she loves in danger, she will have to confront her hidden past and use her newfound gifts—risking everything to save her friends and beloved town.

    I came into this book not realizing it's a superhero origin story so at some point I thought, What the heck is this book supposed to be about?! The author always creates easy-going, compelling prose and highly relatable characters, so I did enjoy the book on that level.

    This was perfect in so many ways: the right amount of everything, from development to plot twists to the romantic arc. I loved Faith.

    This was the first Crutcher book I ever read and I loved it! It is still relevant for students today.

    Louie is in his final year of high-school and life is going well, but a confrontation on the football field results in his dropping out of the team and a subsequent suspension from school. Louie's girlfriend, Becky, supports him through this time. Becky dies in a car accident, which adds to Louie's stress and he reacts badly at the funeral. Louie's grief is realistically drawn, and he is supported by his parents and Becky's father during this time. Some of the best advice offered is from Louie's boss, Dakota, who tells him that "the reason some things happen is just because they happen."

     “Hey, you know, this isn’t a whole lot of fun.”“Ain’t is it? Not hardly worth playin’. Funny too, ‘cause the rules are simple and easy.”Louie Banks doesn’t have the worst life. His friends and people he knows have it bad with abusive parents and bad influences, but compared to them, Louie lives like a god. With great friends, a fantastic football player, and the most wanted girlfriend in the school named Becky, who’s eyes makes guys ache for her. What can go wrong?Apparently a lot. In a big game, Louie fights against the coach who ordered one of his players to hurt the star player on the opposite team, and what he gets for that is getting kicked out of the team. It’s still not that bad. He has supporters that love him and care for him including Becky, but as things start to look better, Louie’s life is running loose.All of Chris Crutcher’s main characters have relatively good lives. They always do compare to their best friend or one of their enemies. Also, Crutcher makes you want to root for the main character, because every other one ticks you off, including any/all Catholics. That and with drugs, abuse, language, and other suggestive themes, no wonder people want to ban his books, but each books has their own lesson, but you have to look inside yourself to figure that out. I highly recommend all of his books. They’re short, and to me, guarantee satisfaction.Rating: Four Stars ****

    I really enjoyed listening to this super hero “origin story” with plenty of nerd culture references. It felt modern without being forced, with diverse characters. While the “who done it” mystery isn’t unpredictable, it’s a fun little story. My on ly complaint is that I’d like to see more of this world. This feels like a first couple episodes in a series.
