Wonder Woman at Super Hero High Review

three-half-stars

This groundbreaking new middle grade series follows DC Comics' most iconic female Super Heroes and Super-Villains . . . as high schoolers. At Super Hero High, the galaxy's most powerful teens nurture their powers and master the fundamentals of what it means to be a hero.

The whole concept of this book series is one that I think is perfect for younger girls and preteens. I for one have always loved super heroes and grew up loving them but my girls haven’t been that into them. I think this series will be what gets them to give it a try. I loved the idea of having the superheroes going through normal things that teens go through and seeing how they cope with it all. In this book we meet Wonder Woman as we see her getting accepted into Super Hero high and having to live life away from Paradise Island and the life she has always known. I loved Wonder woman from the start as she was really just a normal teen that was just a little different. She made mistakes and lived and learned and that is what life is all about. We got a great look into some of the other super heroes too and I think what I loved the most is that Wonder Woman got to be roommates with Harley Quinn.

 

As the story continues we learn that someone doesn’t want Wonder Woman at the school and she teams up with Lois Lane and Hawkgirl to try to see who is out to get her. I think the author did such a good job of showing the strengths and weaknesses of all the characters in the book and the way she showed how high school life is for some kids. There were times I forgot about them being superheroes and got wrapped up in the normal parts of their lives. I thin the author does a great job of making this appeal to a younger crowd by taking out a lot of the stuff that is found in the adult end of the DC Universe. The loved the ending of this book and the new super-heroine introduction and cant wait for the next book in this series. I plan on passing this book on to my daughters to see if they may enjoy it as much as I did.
