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'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 ...more
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.
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 ...more

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...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!
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 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 ...more
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 ...more
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.
The first book in this series is about Wonder Woman learning of Super Hero High a ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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.
