Higher, Further, Faster by Liza Palmer - OPTIONAL

Higher, Further, Faster by Liza Palmer, 249 pages.  Marvel Press (Disney), 2019.  $18.  

Content: Language: PG (2 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.  



Carol Danvers is excited to start at the United States Air Force Academy.  She has always dreamed of flying and is determined to prove herself in a predominately male environment.  Carol rooms with another woman, Maria, and they become best friends as their goals are similar.  When they are discouraged from joining the elite Flying Falcons, Carol and Maria work together and learn to trust themselves, each other and the good friends around them.  

The story line is pretty basic, without much action, but Carol is likable and so are her friends. As Carol learns to trust herself and disregard the limitations others try to put on her, her growth is fun to watch.  This book is more about the inner thoughts and rants of Danvers and girl power, and less action and adventure than you would expect from a Marvel’s book.  There is no reference to Carol Danvers being Captain Marvel.

Reviewer, C. Peterson
