Wonder Woman at Super Hero High (DC Super Hero Girls)
Novel version of comic book story
From her comfortable home on Paradise Island, Wonder Woman longs to attend the prestigious Super Hero High, especially after she sees the recruitment video. Despite her mother Hippolyta's objections, Wonder Woman heads off to her new school, delighted that she will be able to bring good to the wider world. She meets a wide array of super heroes as well as future super villains. She has to take classes in flying, using weapons, and fashion design, the latter with the DC character Crazy Quilt. She makes good friends with her roommate Harley, a budding reporter, as well as Bumblebee, Hawkeye and Katana, but has problems with Star Sapphire and a few others. When she gets notes suggesting that she leave the academy, Wonder Woman starts to wonder if the student she replaced, Mandy Bowin, might be behind the threats. When she is chosen to be part of the Superhero Triathlon team, Wonder Woman finally gets a chance to prove herself.
There's lots of middle school type drama even though Wonder Woman is in high school. There are problems with friends, frenemies, and with her transition from Paradise Island.
My only objections are that I'm a little confused about why she had to have the nickname of "Wondy"-- wouldn't she have just asked to be called Diana Prince? Also, Steve Trevor also shows up as a rather geeky guy working in his family's restaurant. While this is a nice touch, how could she then meet him on her island after his plane crash lands? Still, with any retelling of a canonical story, there is wiggle room for change.
There seems to be a renewed interest in all things super hero, due to a lot of movies that have come out lately, so this will definitely be a popular book!
