The New York Public Library Names 'Marvel Powers of a Girl,' 'Ironheart' Among 2019's Best Books for Teens

The New York Public Library included two Marvel offerings on their list of selections!

As 2019 draws to a close, many lists are spotlighting the best of the year. Every year, the New York Public Library curates a list of its Best Books for Teens -- this year, that list includes two Marvel books! Marvel Powers of a Girl by Lorraine Cink and Ironheart, Vol. 1: Those With Courage written by Eve L. Ewing both made the NYPL's list of top reads for teenagers.

Here's what the NYPL said about each book, both of which are available to purchase wherever books are sold:

Marvel Powers of a Girl

Written by Lorraine Cink with artwork by Alice X. Zhang

NYPL: "A timeless tribute to the women of the Marvel Universe packed full of gorgeous illustrations." (Get an inside look at the book right here!)

Powers of a Girl

Ironheart, Vol. 1: Those With Courage

Written by Eve L. Ewing with art by Kevin Libranda, Luciano Vecchio, and G Geoffo

NYPL: "You would think having a high-tech super suit would make being a teen easier, but Riri learns that's not the case."

Ironheart Vol 1

If you're still looking for holiday gifts -- or a new read for yourself! -- both of these Marvel books are solid picks for teens. Buy Marvel Powers of a Girl by Lorraine Cink and Ironheart, Vol. 1: Those With Courage written by Eve L. Ewing wherever books are sold!
