While adjusting to a new school, Wonder Woman and Supergirl both face challenges, ranging from bullying to self-doubt to alien invasion. The plot twists are predictable, and both books focus more on traditional school issues than on super-hero action. Still, these lighthearted and fast-paced tales, full of cameos by well-known and obscure heroes, will have wide appeal. [Review covers the following DC Super Hero Girls titles: Supergirl at Super Hero High and Wonder Woman at Super Hero High.] Copyright 2017 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Gr 4–6—Following in the footsteps of "Monster High" and "Ever After High," this first installment in the series is paired with TV specials, online content, and merchandise, including action figures. Teenage Wonder Woman leaves Paradise Island to attend Super Hero High, one of the top schools for budding young superheroes, in Metropolis. She makes new friends, including Bumblebee and Hawkgirl; develops her first crush; and works toward excellence in classes such as Weaponomics and Flyers' Ed. But not everything is smooth going at Super Hero High. Wonder Woman's most embarrassing moments are being shared with the world through videos captured by her roommate, Harley Quinn. Even worse, someone is leaving mean notes for Wonder Woman to get her to leave school. While this story is filled with superheroes, it will appeal more to fans of lighthearted school drama stories than those looking for action. The humor sometimes falls flat, and savvy readers will uncover the mystery bully long before the reveal, but with its fast pace, chapters that end on cliff-hangers, and high-interest characters, this is a good choice for reluctant readers or those looking for a fun, quick read. Readers familiar with superhero characters will enjoy seeing some recognizable names, but the story remains accessible for those new to DC's superhero universe. VERDICT Sure to have wide appeal, this book is a solid option to balance collections saturated with male superheroes.—Jenna Friebel, Deerfield Public Library, IL
