My daughter said four stars after we read it together. She liked the Batgirl book better (which she gave 5 stars to). Maybe I should just create her own Goodreads profile for her :)

Writing a Middle Grade novel featuring high school-age protagonists can be challenging. I get it. But it's possible to keep language and content at a Middle Reader level, but still have your characters behave like high schoolers, rather than grade schoolers. Unfortunately, this book failed to do so. And, um, how difficult would it be for the students at Super Hero High to go by their mundane names, rather than strictly by their super hero names? I doubt Hippolyta called her daughter "Wonder Woma ...more

I’m putting this on the back burner for now. I know this is a Children’s book and children are not always the cleanest but... the copy I got from the library has food stains in it and smells like... i don’t even know. Not good. But it’s distracting and I’m a germaphobe 🤷🏼♀

Did I just check this out from the library? Yes, yes I did. Don’t underestimate my love for all things Wonder Woman :P

Wonder Woman is chosen to go to the supreme school of super heroes. And we are in for a ride when she has to bunk with our beloved Harley Quinn.
Going to a new school isn't always easy. You'll always have a few people who are jealous and want to destroy you.
Wonder Woman is all about lifting spirits and being there for everyone.
Super cute start to a series that is going places.

I thought that this book was very well written, entertaining and funny. A great insight into the DC Superhero Girls world with many enjoyable references to DC comics and the show! Can't wait for the next!

Clunky writing, but the emotional arc— Wonder Woman learning what it means to lead and excellent— is ON POINT.

Better than I'd thought it would be

I've watched this show with my daughter. She's a hug fan so of course I had to get the book series for her.

Shes and advanced reader but gets bored and its hard to get her to read beyond homework. She flew through this book though!

I read it with her and am surprised how much I enjoyed it. I think it's better than the TV show. Fuller characterization and background to make it feel realer.

It also has good modern talking points parents will appreciate like copin

A nice light read,with some of my favorite superheroes in it.It is middle-grade material so I didn't expect a masterpiece.

The boggest thing that bothered ne thpugh,was how nobody thought to use their actual names.'Wondy' for example made me cringe.And I doubt queen Hippolyta called her daughter Wonder Woman.

If you ignore that,it's easier to notice the arc Diana has throughout the book,and how she starts to make herself a hero not with her superpowers but with her actions.

Man, I hate how little reading time I have lately.

Anyway, I think my expectations might have been a bit too YA rather than MG. I struggled with this book at first but in the end, I did end up enjoying it. One thing that did bother me was that Wonder Woman doesn't seem to have a non-superhero name. Neither did many of the other characters even though the distinction between real names and superhero names is mentioned. I just can't stand the name Wondy, when Diana is so much better.

Anyway, I sti

Wonder Woman can easily save the day, but surviving high school proves to be her hardest challenge yet. Mean girls, cute boys, fashion disasters, and people to save...Wonder Woman learns to face them all!

How could I say no to a story about superheroes in high school? This story follows Wonder Woman as a young teen getting off the island, away from her Amazon family, and coming to the real world to learn how to be an amazing superhero. This book has the best lovable characters, ever the characters you know who will eventually become villains are just adorable (my favorite Harley Quinn). Someone is out to get Wonder Woman, with the help of her friends, she tries to find who wants to make her leav

Solid strong debut for DC's new series focusing on the strong female heroes and villains in high school! I would have liked to see a more surprising twist in end and more time on the competition. I also would have liked on my kids behalf to at least have chapter illustrations or perhaps more...

But clearly it is a work of heroic love and there are lots of Easter eggs for fans and drama for lovers of it! Can't wait for Kara's tale!

2.5 stars | The book wasn't bad in itself. The plot was entertaining, fast-paced and age appropriate (it's a middle grade novel), but what I have issues with are the characters. They are supposed to be high schoolers, but they read a lot more younger than that. I also find it quite annoying that they never ONCE called each other by their actual names. I don't know if I'm the only one, but Wonder Woman came across as stupid instead of what I assume the author wanted to be funny... But yay for a s ...more

This book has a good plot and well developped and lovable characters. Wonder Woman is that girl who's so perfect she should come across as obnoxious, but you can't help but love her because there isn't a single ounce of malevolence or pride in her. The awkward situation her cluelessness about the outside world puts her into are hilarious, but she will also be greatly relatable to gifted / high-potential children who made the delight of their parents and teachers but struggled with a crucial lack ...more

It’s a cute story about how to be friends and be a good person. The writing style and simplicity of the characters definitely shows that it’s meant for a younger audience despite everyone being in high school though.

Wanted to love it, but felt very silly. Why use their super names all the time? Why make Wonder Woman dumb?

This is a great book for young fans of DC Comics!

This is the first book in the DC Super Hero Girls middle grade series. It introduces Wonder Woman, who has just been selected to attend Super Hero High. I loved her! She’s a unique character. She takes everything that people say literally. When they tell her to take a seat, she actually picks up a chair.

This story also featured other DC Comics favourite characters, such as Lois Lane, Barbara Gordon, and, my personal favourite, Harley Quinn.

I was pretty excited about reading this one, when the publisher contacted me about it, because I thought it looked pretty cute. Plus I had never read or seen anything about Wonder Woman before. Ack. I was hoping to adore this book. Sadly, that did not happen. Which is upsetting me a bit. I have so many thoughts.

I must admit that my review of this book will not end up being all that positive. Because, sadly, I did not like this one much. And there were a lot of reasons for why, and I need to shar

I heard about this series through Twitter and I knew I just had to check it out. And boy, I am glad I did. There were some bumps in the road that weren't fun, but most of this book was fantastic.

This book is all about Wonder Woman who decides to leave her home island and go to Super Hero High to learn all about being a superhero. Which she already is, but she wants to learn new things, make friends, and much much more. She wants to become better. She is really driven to proof to her parents, but

I received Wonder Woman at Super Hero High from the publisher and this is my honest review.

When asked to review this cute little DC SuperHero Girls series I said yes immediately for a few different reasons. My boyfriend is a huge fan of Super Heroes and I thought it would be cute to read these and start learning about these things to keep up with him. I have seen this series at work before and it just looks so cute.

Really cute, easy-to-read kids book. Love the perspective and introduction of girl superheros for my girls.

This was a cute story about DC superheroes as young teens. This book is part of a series, but the main superhero in this story is Wonder Woman. It follows her first year at Super Hero High, where young superheroes are taught how to use their powers effectively and for the greater good.

I tagged this as middle-school, because that's how old I perceived these young supers to be, even though their school appears to be a high school. Part of what made this book a bit difficult to read as an adult is

While in the hospital I got to watch one of the cartoons of the Super Hero High series. When I saw one of the books on Harley Quinn, and that it was the latest in a set, I decided to get the whole set.
One really good point in the books vs the cartoon, is that both boys and girls are at S.H. High. In the cartoon it was girls only. A decision that avoids the 'girls can do anything' endless propaganda that gets so boring so fast. I got sick of it 45 years ago in high school. One girl on one of thos

While I accept that I am way, way older than the intended readers, there is a limit to how ridiculous a book can get. This is like a picture book or a throwaway idea for a children's cash grab written out in long form. I've seen the cartoon and the simplistic characterization and dialogue works in that medium, but it left me cold in a book.
Wonder Woman goes from the highly trained and educated princess of the Amazons to a weird and superficial caricature of a quirky high-school girl. She grows o

Okay, so why on earth did I read this? I will tell you why. Because I have spent the summer babysitting a reader and she told me to. Don't ask me why I am using my free time to satisfy the whims of an eleven year old, except that enthusiasm is infectious and it makes her so happy when I can join in the conversation. So read this I did. It was cute. This series is kind of cute. But as an adult comics fan it does sort of drive me a little nuts sometimes. This book centered on Wonder Woman as she m ...more

Cute and deftly written. I wish that Wonder Woman's literal-mindedness and naivete wasn't such a problem- it made her seem not very bright even though the book was careful to talk about all the activities she did and languages she knew, she applied critical thinking to anything. And the story itself was a little strange. The actual harassment and abuse was shockingly serious and yet somewhat glossed over in the book. It felt like they were discounting the emotional damage of having someone invad ...more

"Nothing was the same for Wonder Woman after that. But then, when is any day the same as the day before?"

I personally think that this series could benefit from some occasional full-page illustrations (esp. for the more visual moments), and the writing isn't fabulous enough to hold appeal for both adults and children (as many wonderful middle grade books do), but it's a nice tie-in for the Superhero Girls series' fans and is peppered with various positive messages (much like the show) throughout.
