Waiting On Wednesday (the delayed version)- Faith: Taking Flight

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This post is obviously being posted on the wrong day seeing as how it is Thursday today, BUT I did not share it on the regular Wednesday due to the holiday and still wanted to share my pick for this week.

This week's pick is Faith: Taking Flight by Julie Murphy

Here is the Goodreads synopsis
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 love superhero stories. It is no secret that I love the Marvel movies, and routinely check out anything superhero related that comes out on television or in books. Julie Murphy's newest caught my attention because Faith sounds like such a unique superhero while still holding on to the tropes that define the genre. I am excited to discover her origin story and trust Julie Murphy to write something fun.

This is perfectly timed as a summer release as this is certain to be a fun pool side read.

Expected release date - July 7, 2020
