Goodreads Synopsis:

This groundbreaking new middle grade series follows DC Comics’ most iconic female Super Heroes and Super-Villains . . . as high schoolers. At Super Hero High, the galaxy’s most powerful teens nurture their powers and master the fundamentals of what it means to be a hero.


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 really enjoyed the story, even though it is written for middle grade audience. There was a great mystery when Wonder Woman was getting anonymous threats at school.

There were some typos in the story, including spelling Wonder Woman’s name wrong. This is a big problem when the book is aimed at early readers, because they are just learning to read and could get confused. But I still liked the story.

What to read next:

  • Supergirl at Super Hero High (DC Super Hero Girls #2)
  • DC Super Hero Girls: Date with Disaster!

Have you read this book or this series? What did you think?

  1. I own a copy of this in my K-5 library and it does get checked out pretty often. Our students like DC but seem to be bigger fans of Marvel. I do plan to add the second book in this series though because I know they will read it.
