Website | TwitterGoodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | Indigo | Library

Get your cape on with the DC Super Hero Girls™— the unprecedented new Super Hero universe especially for girls! Readers of all ages can fly high with the all-new adventures of Wonder Woman™, Supergirl™, Batgirl™, and some of the world’s most iconic female super heroes as high schoolers!

Batgirl has always hidden in the shadows—but does she have what it takes to stand in the spotlight at Super Hero High?

Barbara Gordon has always been an off-the-charts, just-forget-about-the-test super-genius and tech whiz, and then she gets the offer of a lifetime when Supergirl recognizes that Barbara’s talents make her an ideal candidate for Super Hero High. Donning the cape and cowl, Barbara Gordon becomes Batgirl, ready to train at the most elite school on the planet, next to some of the most powerful teenagers in the galaxy. She’s always had the heart of a hero . . . but now she’ll have to prove that she can be one. Good thing she loves a challenge!

Did I screech in excitement when I heard Batgirl was getting her own Super Hero High book? You bet I did. Did I refrain from scaring the Random House publicist when she asked if I want to take part in the Batgirl at Super Hero High blog tour? Yup.

First sentence: “Oh, sure, there were injuries.”

Na na na na na na na na Batgirl! Batgirl!

In this third book in the Super Hero High series, Batgirl has decided that she doesn’t want to sit on the sidelines anymore while her friends are out there saving people. She wants to attend Super Hero High, but her dad, Commissioner Gordon, absolutely refuses to allow her. With her superior reasoning skills, she manages to convince her reluctant dad to let her attend the school (but with a few set of rules she must abide by). In Batgirl at Super Hero High, Batgirl has to deal with her desire to save people like her dad, a worried dad who doesn’t want Batgirl to get hurt, stress from all the different work loads she’s juggling, a reality show about technologically savvy people, and much more!

Supergirl at Super Hero High by Lisa Yee • July 5, 2016 • Random House Books for Young Readers

Get your cape on with the DC Super Hero Girls™—the unprecedented new Super Hero universe especially for girls! Readers of all ages can fly high with the all-new adventures of Wonder Woman™, Supergirl™, Batgirl™, and some of the world’s most iconic female super heroes as high schoolers!

Supergirl is the new girl in school—and she just also happens to be the most powerful teenager in the galaxy!

After losing her home planet of Krypton and everyone she knows, Supergirl has made a new home on Earth, but she’s isn’t so sure that Super Hero High School is the right place for her. Wonder Woman, other new friends, and a kindly librarian make her feel welcome, but breached inter-dimensional portals, invading alien armies, and bad dreams shake her confidence. It’s not easy being a super hero and a high school student all at once!

The wonderful folks at Random House asked me if I wanted to take part in a blog tour for Supergirl at Super Hero High, and I was absolutely thrilled because it’s Supergirl! Another awesome female superhero that everybody should get to know.

First sentence: “Wonder Woman!” Principal Waller bellowed.

It’s a bird, it’s a plane…it’s Supergirl first time at school!

In this sequel to the Super Hero High series, the Kents have decided that it’s time that Supergirl enroll into Super Hero High to take control of her powers and hone them. However, Supergirl is really unsure that going to Super Hero High is a good idea. The school is hard (another rival school doesn’t do exams), and she keeps making tons of mistakes that could be unavoidable if she isn’t Supergirl (aka clumsy). In Supergirl at Super Hero High, Supergirl has to deal with the mounting pressure of being a superhero, her insecurities of not being worthy enough, trying to fit in, her grief over the death of her parents and Krypton, various threatening incidents involving the Boom Tubes, and much more.

Wonder Woman at Super Hero High by Lisa Yee • March 1, 2016 • Random House Books for Young Readers
WebsiteTwitter | Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | Indigo | Library

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.

Wonder Woman isn’t like most high school students. Super Hero High isn’t like most high schools.

Wonder Woman is an Amazon warrior and princess. She has never left her home on Paradise Island. But she wants to be a super hero—the best super hero she can be. At Super Hero High, shae has to juggle intense training, new friendships, and a roommate who shares every embarrassing moment on social media. Not to mention…Wonder Woman has never seen a boy before.

This is going to be harder than she thought.

The wonderful folks at Random House asked me if I wanted to take part in a blog tour for Wonder Woman at Super Hero High, and you bet my answer was a YES. How can you say no to Wonder Woman? You absolutely cannot. Now, let me tell you all about the awesomeness of this cute book!

I received this book for free from Random House for blog tour + review consideration. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

First sentence: “It was barely the third week of school, and already someone had been expelled.”

Every kid wants to go to a magical school like Hogwarts or Super Hero High. Wonder Woman wants to too.

In this Middle Grade book, Wonder Woman has big plans to be one of the best superheroes ever, and to be the best, she wants to go to a school that’ll help her become that and even more. If that means she has to leave Paradise Island, the only place she’s ever known, she’ll do it. With her mother’s blessings, she sets off on an adventure that’ll help her become a great superhero, make wonderful lifetime-lasting friendships, learn to deal with “mean” girls (who Wonder Woman probably doesn’t see as being mean on the account of her trusting nature), find out who’s been leaving threatening notes to her, and much more.
