Passionate about teen reads, but having a hard time getting a virtual book group going...? Join a group of teen librarians as they discuss a YA work with teen patrons of the Boston Public Library as part of their year-long #ReadingTogether challenge.
January 2021's work will be the graphic novel Ms. Marvel (2014), Volume 1 by G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona. Kamala Khan is an ordinary girl from Jersey City—until she is suddenly empowered with extraordinary gifts. But who truly is the all-new Ms. Marvel? Teenager? Muslim? Inhuman? Find out as she takes the Marvel Universe by storm! As Kamala discovers the dangers of her newfound powers, she unlocks a secret behind them as well. Is Kamala ready to wield these immense new gifts? Or will the weight of the legacy before her be too much to handle?
