Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This continuation of the entertaining superhero origin story teamimg popular author Julie Murphy with the Valiant Comics franchise keeps the fun and positivity going strong. Body size, sexual orientation, and good old-fashioned upbeat optimism make Faith: Greater Heights as refreshing and inclusive as the first volume. As with Faith: Taking Flight, some of the plot and the characters are pretty transparent. Some twists and turns are easier to spot than others, but they build to a large-scale confrontation toward the end that keep the pages turning. Fans of the first book will enjoy reuniting with some favorite old characters while being intruduced to mysterious new ones. Superhero fans and fans of Julie Murphy will enjoy the upbeat tone, action, and mystery without all the violence and brooding that define so many superhero stories.
