On the blog today we are part of the Rockstar Book Tour doing a review for Glow Girl.
Let’s take a look at Glow Girl.
About the Book:
Title: GLOW GIRL
Author: M. Weidenbenner
Pub. Date: October 31, 2019
Publisher: Entangled Publishing, LLC (Amara)
Formats: Paperback, eBook
Willow is just your average sixteen-year-old girl. Okay, maybe not so average. She can heal animals. For her own safety, her veterinarian parents have made her promise not to use her powers. But sometimes her compassion just takes over, and she can’t help … well … helping.
Willow is a Droit, but hides her Droitism because people like her are feared and hated by those without special abilities. Two of Willow’s schoolmates, rumored to be Droits, have simultaneously disappeared.
When Willow’s non-Droit friend, Rain, is targeted, Willow wonders whether she should get involved–even if that means putting herself in the line of fire.
A mysterious new friend, Trae, just might be the key to unlock her courage.
In the end, she has a choice: she can deny who she is or declare her ability to heal, but either way, her life will never be the same again.
Glow Girl pleasantly surprised me.
I was given the book for a review up knowing that I would enjoy the story. It was a superhero story, much like Xmen, where people have powers and those without fear them.
They are called Droits and there is much prejudice against them. This reason is why Willow keeps her powers of healing animals to herself. I loved that her Aunt Fifi was there to help her find her path as a Droit. Their relationship was heartwarming and Aunt Fifi was a good secondary character. I always like a book with a positive family dynamic.
Weidenbenner did a wonderful job at creating her world of Droits. It’s a lot like our own but with superpowers.The description was vivid thrusting the reader right into that world. The characters were likable and the pace was quick and the reading easy. I finished this book wanting more.
Should you read it? Yes, a pleasant read that makes you want more.
