NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE FROM MARVEL STUDIOS! Carol Danvers kicks off her U.S. Air Force career with her first year at flight school, where she'll be tested in ways she never thought possible-and make a lifelong friend, Maria Rambeau, in the process-in this atmospheric and exciting prelude to the upcoming Marvel Studios' film, Captain Marvel! Focusing on Carol Danvers and Maria Rambeau as they wend their way through a space that was still very much a boys' club in the 80s, the important social-cultural themes explored in this novel are sure to draw in not only fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but readers of social issue-focused YA who gravitate toward relatable protagonists learning to navigate the world around them, and to succeed in the face of seemingly insurmountable adversity.

Reviews for Captain Marvel: Higher Further Faster

In this touching tale of self-discovery, determination, and hope, Palmer gives clear voices to the protagonist and secondary characters, rounding them out with admirable character development. The elements that describe the Air Force are illuminating without inundating readers. With an underlying feminist message, this novel captivates readers right from the start and keeps them engaged. --Kirkus Reviews
