Wonder Woman at Super Hero High, by Lisa Yee takes place, unsurprisingly, at Super Hero High, which is a high school for young super heroes. It is basically a typical high school except for the fact that they are super heroes who are pretty much just meeting each other. At the end we meet Super Girl. She isn’t mentioned through the rest of the book, though. This book was fun and even though I’m not really big on super heroes, I was surprised I was interested in it. I liked it because it offered some back story on some of the evilest villains and best superheroes of all time. For example, it offers back story on Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn (like harlequin, get it?!), Wonder Woman, and there is also Beast Boy, which is interesting, I have to admit.
Some of the villains I have mentioned aren’t completely out of their gourds yet. My favorite character was Poison Ivy. Poison Ivy is really interesting because the book tells us how exactly she got to be so talented with plants. P.S., she loves plants from the start!
After finishing the book, I could not remember very much of the story that was woven in with all the backstories. The backstories are the best part of the book. I would recommend this book for anyone who is interested in super heroes or is interested in learning the back story of the super heroes. Even though it takes place in a high school, I would recommend this book for grades 2-7. The book is interesting and I want to read more. If there is a sequel, I will totally want it, but overall, it was kind of meh.
