Here is what I thought
It’s another fun-filled, super cute, superhero book series that concentrates on the girls!
Barbara Gordon is a tech wiz and she is always helping out at Superhero High, in the last book she got to use some of her tech skills to help save the world. She really wants to go to Superhero High as Batgirl, the name her best friend, Supergirl, gave her. It takes a lot of talking and pleading with her dad, Commissioner Gordon, to be able to attend.
Now that she is there Batgirl is having all sort of second thoughts, about if she is good enough to be a hero since she doesn’t have super powers. Her fellow superhero friends have faith in her and when something goes terribly wrong the only one that can fix it Batgirl and she learns what it means to be a true superhero.
Though the supers are in high school, I feel it’s more of a middle grade to maybe young YA. Though I think it’s fun for everyone! It’s a great book to learn about believing in yourself and going after what you want and follow your heart.
