It's hard to find strong, fun, realistic heroes for English-reading Muslim girls. Ms. Marvel is certainly strong and fun, though you might wonder how she can possibly be realistic, comic book superhero as she is. Well, the dialogue surrounding her family life is realistic -- AND funny, AND relatable. She fits right into the spirit of Marvel superheroes. Not surprising, as Willow Wilson, the author, is both a veteran writer of comic books, as well as an American Muslim and accomplished novelist. (Her memoir, "The Butterfly Mosque," is a lovely story and cultural study.) This series is funny, fun, inspiring, and beautifully illustrated. It's fun for nearly all ages. Do yourself a favor, whether you're Muslim or not: get this book for yourself or for the young women and girls in your life.
