16-year-old Kamala is a geeky Muslim-American teen, with typical teen concerns like hanging out with friends and struggling with parental restrictions but her biggest concern is just blending in with her peers. Her family and religion make her stand out, but she wants to be the same as everyone else. One night, Kamala is unexpectedly visited by the Avengers and the original Ms. Marvel, and they grant her superhero powers. Adventures ensue! Is Kamala ready for these powerful gifts? Will she be able to learn the secret behind controlling her new powers? And more importantly, will she ever find a way to be normal?  (Jocelyn Redel, Teen Librarian, Lynnwood Library, Evergreen Teen Book Awards, 2017)
