Faith taking flight – Faith Herbert origin

I can never say this enough , we have a FAT SUPERHERO .

Summary :

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.

Review :


Faith is the story of Faith , a high schooler with two best friends and her Grandma , has the cliche High schooler life. Except she can fly. And she has one of the most famous blogs on her fandom Groove.

Since the day Julie announced about her new fat superhero book , I was excited. I requested the day it got added to Edelweiss and now .. I’m not really sure .

Faith is a fat fangirl superhero who can fly. Glenwood has Mysterious disappearances and Faith’s world changing every single chapter.

The superhero part of the book was way oversell. We don’t get to that part of her until 80% . Yes , she has been traumatised by her experiences . But we should’ve been able to see that part of her more.

Faith has friends , peers in her journalism club , crushes , Grandma , and school. But her among her relationships with everyone , only her grandma seem to be the meaningful. But we don’t get much of that either.

Her friends treated her like crap once the spotlight shifted away and Faith never realises this.

I have a looot of mixed feelings about the FF relationship and it’s not really distinguished.

Overall, I expected a glorified superhero book but was utterly disappointed.

I thank Edelweiss and Balzer and Bray for my e-ARC .
