Wonder Woman and Katharine Drexel, the do-gooder heiress turned tireless missionary? Katniss from Hunger Games and Mary MacKillop, who had more than one run-in with authority on her way to canonization? Yep, that’s the way my friend Maria Morera Johnson sees it in her new book, Super Girls and HalosI’m looking forward to discovering these commonalities and more! And, her subtitle–My Companions on the Quest for Truth, Justice, and Heroic Virtue–really speaks to me, because we can always use more friends on the journey, right?
In addition, Maria’s going to have some fun with this book launch, which officially begins September 8. She’s going to give away a plush Wonder Woman doll to someone posting a picture of herself (or himself, I’m sure that’d be fine too) with the book and the hashtag #SuperGirlsandHalos on social media. I can’t wait to see the creative ideas people come up with to try to be the winner!
