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.
I was so happy to be asked to read this next installment in the DC Super Hero Girls series. I was not sure what I was getting into with the first installment but from the first chapter I was hooked and the second book could not come any faster for me.
Lisa Yee is back with another stunning superhero book that shows how bad ass the DC girls can be. In her first installment, we follow Wonder Woman and her journey in her bumpy transition from her home to Superhero High. However, now there is a new girl, Supergirl, and she is just off to a bumpy start that Wonder Woman found when she first arrived. It is not long though for Supergirl to make friends and find herself to become a character of great importance.
What I liked so much about this book was that it was just such a fun read. Just like the first book, it was fast paced, easy to fall into, and the characters were loveable. I loved the message of never giving up and being able to come in as an outsider and find yourself. I know for the younger crowd this is really something they can relate to and Lisa Yee does such a marvelous job of portraying this through Supergirl.
I am excited to read what comes next in the fantastic series that is perfect for anyone looking for just a read to pick you up and make you smile. Supergirl is definitely a superhero to add to your list of favorites.
I give this book 5 souls!
