Ms. Marvel Vol. 1
by G. Willow Wilson

Growing up Muslim in Jersey City isn't easy. For a girl so desperate to fit in, 16-year-old Kamala only ever seems to be the odd one out, with the unusual food rules and strict family. Her only escape is her Avergers fan fiction - wouldn't it be cool to be like Captain Marvel? So tall and blonde and glamorous - only it's got to be the classic lightning-bolt costume with the thigh-high boots. Then Kamala would feel strong and confident and beautiful. But as her wise old Abu might tell her, be careful what you wish for. When the Terrigen Mists descend, Kamala gets a taste of the costumed life - but it's nothing like she expected.
