Supergirl may have great powers, but she has no clue how to control them. Not to mention, she’s the new girl at a school for incredible superheroes who have skills beyond belief. When mysterious happenings occur at her school, she will have to find her confidence, trust her friends, and get ready to defend the planet she’s learning to love.

What I Loved:

The premise of this series is fantastic. Readers will love seeing some of their favorites as high-schoolers nervous about school projects and try

This book is SO much fun, and it’s perfect for MG and early YA readers. My daughter and I both read this one and both thoroughly enjoyed it. It provides lots of super hero action but also has a sweet message about believing in yourself. I highly recommend this for MG readers!

This is the second book in the DC Super Hero Girls Series, but it can definitely be read alone (neither my daughter nor I had read the first one a
The second book in the DC Super Hero Girls and this time our main lead girl is Supergirl.

I was really eager to read this one, Supergirl is just amazing, and I couldn't wait to see her in this version.

The book starts off with before-Super Hero High, it all starts with Supergirl's/Kara's planet exploding, and her losing her parents. She is shot off to Earth, only due to some stuff she doesn't arrive the same time as someone else does. It was fun to see where she landed, and to see the Kent famil

When the planet Krypton is in danger of exploding, Kara Zor-El's parents put her in an escape craft and send her to earth. She ends up living with the Kents, although Clark is a good ten years older due to variances in the time-space continuum. While the Kents are very nice to her, she feels that she should probably go to school somewhere else, and Korugar Academy. She also is a fan of Wonder Woman, so she's okay with going to Super Hero High. When she arrives, however

I love this series! I originally read Harley Quinn at Super Hero High first not knowing that it was the fifth book in this series. Now I have been reading the rest in order. I look forward to diving into the next book!

Supergirl at Super Hero High Review
By: Elizabeth


Lisa Yee shares an unforgetting, actionpacked, science-fiction novel in Supergirl at Super Hero High, which is the second book in the series. After Kara’s (Supergirl) planet blew up, her parents passed away with the planet. Before her parents had died, Kara got sent of on a spacecraft, watching not only her parents and planet explode, but everyone who was on it. Kara and her cousin Clark were the only survivors. But when Kara’s ship got kn

4 stars, really liked it. I always wish we could do half ratings tho, i would do 4 and 1/2. This book is more for younger kids than adults.

This was actually a lot better than I expected it to be. It managed to be cute and funny without getting too cheesy or corny.
It is, as others have already said here, an excellent introduction to the DC world for younger readers. And for those already familiar with DC a pleasant, light-hearted read full of fun references.
Also this book more than passes the Bechdel test and I think this is rare enough in books marketted at young girl like this one that it's worth noticing. In fact there is litte

This book is aimed at a middle school audience and from what I remember of middle school, it works. In fact it fits in real well. However, I am an adult, so I was not entirely entranced. I was also not bored, so for this type of book, that is a big plus.

Any problems? Well... one error in fact. One of the characters muses that Switzerland has no army. If that is so, where did the Swiss Army Knife come from? In fact, the Swiss Armed Forces are part of NATO though they operate only within Switzerla

Supergirl at superhero high is a really really good book. It talks about how Super Girl came to earth about 20 years after smaller cousin Superman. It’s in shows how she becomes a superhero and how she goes in joins a superhero high school. It was the same high school her cousin went to. All other sorts of superheroes were their including wonder woman, the flash, beast boy, and batgirl and so many others. Shows how she doesn’t really feel like she fits in with the rest because she has different ...more

This book is all about girl superheroes. It is actually the girl version of the boy superheroes like batman is batgirl in the story superman is supergirl and… you get the point. Anyway all the other superheroes except supergirl have been to superhero high before. Supergirl is new to the school and more importantly she is new to the Earth. She is very nervous about what the other girls would think of her. She also is nervous about what is around her on Earth. Although she is really scared Wonder ...more

Read aloud with my daughter. I think it's a cool concept in that it provides a different entry point to the DC Superhero universe, and that it shines the spotlight on the girl heroes in a formative period of time that allows kids to relate to them in that way. I thought the backstory catch up was pretty decent, and the ties to other stories. What I didn't like was the actual reading experience, as an adult - the plot meandered and got repetitive, a few plot points were super obvious and loudly t ...more

I enjoyed this book. It’s the second in the series.

Supergirl arrives at Super Hero High in this story. She has recently arrived on Earth, so everything is new to her, including her powers.

The students at Super Hero High have to figure out who is trying to break into a room called the Boom Tubes at the school. The Boom Tubes are portals to anywhere in the galaxy that you could travel to. I think it was obvious from the beginning who was trying to break into the room. That person was very suspicio

I had to keep in mind that this book was aimed at younger readers, but it was still leaned more to telling me things rather than showing them. This is the second book in the series; something I didn't realize until after reading it so it does an excellent job of giving relevant information; probably helped that the characters are well established already. The characters were somewhat generic - not caricatures of themselves exactly but rather the feel of stock characters expect for Supergirl who ...more

Supergirl at Super Hero High by Lisa Yee

This is the second book in a cute series that would be perfect for middle school girls. In this book, Supergirl heads to Super Hero High to learn how to control her powers. She of course joins the others in saving their city and beating the bad guys. These are cute, good reads. I borrowed this book from the public library.

This book was much more difficult for me to finish reading. Maybe Supergirl isn't my cup of tea or the enormous whineing and moaning and self-doubt absolutely sucked all the enjoyment from this book for me. I still want to finish this series, but I hope the next one isn't as hard for me to get into.

Excellent read! My daughter and I both enjoyed this one! I think the more we read together the more my daughter understands story form and can anticipate what is going to happen. She knew who the bad person was before I did (wink), and she had every reason to be proud of herself for having unraveled the mystery! Excellent read...share it with your little one!
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It is more of a middle school or even junior high than a high school, and that's about my biggest complaint. The book can get a little repetitive and overdone but no worse than any other book written for this age group. Overall, not bad.

I really enjoyed the 2nd book in the series. Supergirl feels extremely out of place at a new school, something I think most kids can relate to. She doubts herself which causes her to make mistakes. She makes friends with Barbara Gordon who helps her to believe in herself and to slow down.

A sequel to Wonder Woman at Super Hero High, it keeps the pace and the characterization going without missing a beat. Rarely does a sequel accomplish that in my opinion.
I can't wait for the next installment - Bat Girl at Super Hero High.

Very cute. But sloths do not have prehensile tails, Beast Boy! How are you a sloth hanging from a giant crystal by your tail?
This series continues to be predictable with no real conflict. The moral messages are in your face and preachy.

A much better read than Book 1. Lisa seems to be comfortable with the genre, exploring Super Girl as conflicted despite her powers. The issues of being a stranger and an orphan are presented.
