"Sure to have wide appeal, this book is a solid option to balance collections saturated with male superheroes." --School Library Journal "If you have a middle grader in your life looking for super-sized action, or a superhero enthusiast who isn't sure where to turn to get more of the superheroes they might see on TV or in movies... Or if you just want to dive into a good book that shows young readers--especially young female readers--that girls can be the super heroes of their own stories, look no further: Super Hero High is for you." - Kirkus
