I started this book because several people with good track records had recommended it. I was expecting it to be competently written but probably not exactly my thing, because it was clearly a Book with an Issue that was going to be at the center of all the protagonist's motivation.

I was wrong. This book is really well-written, and it is a Book with an Issue -- which uses it really well to instill empathy and the Sense of Wonder that is the big reason that I love science fiction and fantasy, and is especially one of the ways that I judge superhero comics.

The book is Dreadnought, by April Daniels. If you enjoyed the recent Ms. Marvel, the television Supergirl, or Steven Gould's Jumper,  you're probably going to love this origin story.
