From the description:

In the technologically advanced African city of Numbani, in the not-so-distant future, a hero named Efi Oladele rises! Efi may only be eleven, but after she witnesses an attack on her city by the terrorist known as Doomfist, she realizes you’re never too young to make a difference.

Efi builds an intelligent robot named Orisa to give Numbani the hero it deserves. Orisa has a lot to learn before she’s ready to save the city, but Efi has some things to learn too, especially when it comes to building — and being — a hero.

This action-packed novel is an all-new, original story straight from the ‘Overwatch’ game team, and features fan-favorite characters Orisa, Doomfist, and Lucio!

  1. Cool to see. I’ve bought some YA novels for Black Widow and pre-ordered the forthcoming new YA Star Wars: The High Republic novel.
