Publisher's Summary

Carol Danvers kicks off her US 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 sociocultural themes explored in this novel are sure to draw in not only fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but listeners 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.

Awesome story, but no superhero stuff.

This was a really good listen. They reader matched the content really well and the story was well paced and inspirational. If your a fan of Carol this is a great purchase. If your a fan of stories and personal growth this is a great purchase.

The only "negative" I feel is worth mentioning isn't really even a negative. If your looking for superhero stuff this ISN'T for you. This is just Carol going through military training and is only a story about her as an awesome, but totally mortal woman. This is in no way a bad thing, but I think some people might be disappointed if they went in with false expectations.

Also, it isn't a tie in to the movie. It is definitely heavily inspired by it, but there are a lot of little things that make it clear it's its own story.

The back story of Danvers/Rambeau

A really great friendship story that I couldn’t stop listening to. It really gives more depth to the friendship that you see in the movie and why these two are so close.

Wonderful Prequel to Captain Marvel

Highly recommended. Stirring story of Carol Danvers pre-Captain Marvel days, where we learn just how she came all her very human super-powers. Delightful story, movingly read, will bring exhilaration along with tears and laughs. Great for so many ages and genders. Your MCU is incomplete without this story!
