What I thought of this book
I love my comic book heroes and Wonder Woman is one of my favorites so I jumped at that chance to try out this book when asked to review it.
In this the superheroes are young teenagers and have been sent to Super Hero High so that they can learn how to be proper superheroes. Wonder Woman wanted to go to that school really bad so she wrote a letter asking to get in and then had to get her mom to let her go.
Wonder Woman is a bit naive because she has never been anywhere else but Paradise Island and only been around the woman there. So she is a bit gullible and takes things a bit literal at times. She is so super friendly but she quickly finds out that not everyone is as friendly and trusting as she is. There are some at SHH that don’t want her there.
She does her best to do everything to the best of her ability but it seems like her roommate Harley seems to document on film her most embarrassing moments. Wonder Woman goes viral on HQTV and gains a large following, but someone really doesn’t want her there and starts sending her threatening letters.
She enlist the help of High School reporter Lois Lane when she meets her one day in Metropolis and together along with Hawkgirl they try and figure out who is sending the threats.
So even though Wonder Woman is a bit of the gullible side and I found myself rolling my eyes a bit when she would take what they said so literal, I really did enjoy this book. It’s the first in a series based on superhero girls and I think it’s about time the girls get some spotlight!
I think it’s a perfect books for young girls who are into superheroes and I would recommend it for them. I don’t think all adults would like it but some might find it cute and it would be perfect for reading together with your kid. I know I can’t wait to check out the next one, Supergirl!
