Thanks Edelweiss for blessing me with an ARC, specifically this ARC.

Faith by Julie Murphy is an excellent foray into the undiscovered world of fat superheroes. Who says that superheroes can't be fat? I was LIVING for the idea when I first heard it and was honored to receive an ARC to read it and review it.

Such a fabulous read! I adore Julie’s writing. Faith had me captured on page one. I am not familiar with this world and Faith as a character, but I loved this introduction.
Great characters, lots of action, crushes, betrayal, and mystery had me reading this in one session.
I sincerely hope we see more of Faith!
