Blog Tour: Supergirl at Super Hero High (DC Super Hero Girls #2) by Lisa Yee ~ Review
I loved Wonder Woman at Super Hero High and was excited to be part of the blog tour for book 2. While I do prefer Wonder Woman to Supergirl this book was just as good as book 1.

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.
Thank you Random House Kids for sending me a copy of Supergirl at Super Hero High. This in no way affected my opinion.
I am so happy the stories build off each other and are not just stand alone's focusing on other characters at the school. The prologue starts off with Wonder Woman getting her first assignment as Hero of the month and it is to welcome the new student and show her around. Wonder who it is?
So happy that Lisa Yee incorporates back stories for the hero's. So we get a glimpse at what happened to Kara and why she was sent to earth. Lisa has the perfect balance though of progressing the story while tying in what you need to know. I am such a fan of the concept in each book of being the new kid in school. Every kid has had to deal with this whether being the new kid or having a new kid join his class. She addresses feelings and issues kids cope with.
This book is fun and a book I would encourage any kid to read. As a parent of four I think we need more books like this for kids. I am so hoping in the future we get the Villain's at Super Hero High cause I want a story on Harley Quinn. This is a must read.
