    Barbara Gordon begins her career at Super Hero High as the part time tech representative She works in the tech department and helps fix any glitches After helping the school defeat Granny Goodness and the furies Amanda The Wall Waller extends an invite for her alter ego, Batgirl, to attend Super Hero High.This book is not only about the adventures of fitting into Super Hero High as the only student without super powers, but also about earning the acceptance from her dad, Commissioner Gordon, that she wants to live a life combatting criminals You follow Batgirl through this book as she learns to balance her many classes and duties at Super Hero High, while also trying to convince her dad that she is than capable of kicking the butts of criminals, and of course destroying the plans of criminals intent on destroying the world.This is a cute book and fits with the entire DC Super Hero High world that DC has created It is a book about friendship and learning to work as a team that also expands on how important technology can be I think it is a very empowering book for young girls and boys I will definitely have to read some of the other books from this series.

    Another solid entry into the series Now, when I tell my daughter she s too young for something, or that something is too dangerous, she grumbles that I m just like Commissioner Gordon Little does she know I take that as a compliment

    In this continuous of the SuperHero Girls series, Batgirl Barbara Gordon finally manages to persuade her father to let her attend and then board at Super Hero High But as talented, smart, heroic, and determined as she is, the work is hard and keeps her busy all the time While she makes many friends among her classmates and even befriends a small bat, she also makes at least one enemy who tries to thwart her at every step and make her look like the villain she is not Readers in intermediate grades will enjoy all the challenges Batgirl has to overcome, including her father s fears that she will be hurt or die, and some of the unrealistic demands her classmates place on her for help While the book isn t for everyone, it does have its charms for a certain audience After all, who doesn t like a kick ass heroine

    First Paragraph s Oh, sure, there were injuries Lumps and bruises were an occupational hazard Sometimes it was because a muscle bound metahuman was momentarily careless when working out in Wildcat s phys ed class Or because a flyer took a turn a tad too sharply and slammed into a wall or a fellow student or the cafeteria at full speed Or because of something like what had just happened an invading interstellar alien army had targeted the student population for total enslavement to the powers of evil which was all part of the daily routine at Super Hero High School And most of the super heroes in training loved it Now, as the young heroes flew, ran, stretched, strolled, and teleported into the auditorium, they laughed and congratulated each other They admired their new casts and bandages and bruises Never had so many been so sore and so happy about it.Lisa Yee is a middle grade author I ve wanted to feature here since I read her wonderful Millicent Min, Girl Genius and she ll be here on Thursday, so look forward to that When I saw she was writing the Super Hero High series, I wanted to read it at once and so will you when I tell you Batgirl and Supergirl are two of my favorite characters and Lisa Yee is an author I admire, so I knew I was in for a treat And this was the perfect book for me to read in preparation for my own project.What a fun series this is It s clever and hit all the right notes for a middle grade book for girls about girls that can also amuse a grown man who still likes his comics Super Hero High is like Hogwarts if Hogwarts had way cooler students based on DC characters Personally, I would never want to go back to high school unless it was Super Hero High, and then I might consider it, because I d love to take these classes In PE, instead of running laps around a track, they were often asked to run laps around the city And in Weaponomics, they were learning about devices that could cause mass destruction or save the world As the school s part time tech wizard, Batgirl had seen it all.As Principal Amanda Waller warns Barbara Gordon, A.K.A Batgirl This isn t like your old high school Here, we train students to save lives, make the world a better place, and lead by example There are villains who will aim to bring you and the world down We have to be prepared for that Obviously, as Amanda Waller is principal of a high school, Super Hero High is set in its own continuity separate from any other DC story Although I can t say for certain as Harley Quinn s Super Hero High book doesn t come out until January, I m guessing she didn t fall in love with the Joker after obtaining her doctorate in kindergarten I m also betting money that Batgirl won t be shot in the spine and paralyzed before the end of the series, though Yee does endow her with all the technical know how she ll need if she ever does become Oracle In this version of the DC Universe, Dr Arkham is a school counselor, which strikes me as rather ominous More fun, Crazy Quilt is teaching costume making, and Red Tornado and Comissioner James Gordon are on the faculty as well on him in a moment Steve Trevor is working at the local Capes and Cowls Cafe and wouldn t you know it, Batgirl s classmate Wonder Woman the girl has a crush on him The reader is running into other characters from the DC universe every other chapter, sometimes literally Barbara reporting to Supergirl Supergirl, do you read me Her wafer thin com bracelet crackled before she heard Oops, ouch Sorry Sorry There was a moment of silence, followed by a loud thud, and then Supergirl s voice came in Hey there, BFF I flew too fast and The Flash was running too fast and we had a major collision But we re both okay At least, I think we are He looks sort of wobbly What s up Sorry fellas, but the focus of this series is on the female characters of the DCU, most of them as teenagers Aside from the Flash and Cyborg, I didn t spot a teenage Auquaman, or even Robin But I think I would ve enjoyed this series even as a teenage boy as superheroes of both sexes make for the most fun adventures.There are plenty of stories focusing on teenage Superman, but that s for another series.Yee is careful to maintain the essential essence of every character in the DCU without being a slave to the source material Yes, Harley s a bit crazy, but mostly about media and her own fame, and one gets the sense that in this version of the DCU, she might grow up to be not good, exactly, but not bad bad either As for Barbara Gordon, who mostly goes by the name Batgirl in school, Yee has lots of fun along the way with an oh so slight rearranging of her mythology Batgirl was relieved that she got to keep her annex, or as she referred to it, her Barbara Assisted Technology Bunker This was also called the Bat Bunker.Of all the characters present, I felt that Batgirl was the most true to her comic book self When Red Tornado insists the teen super heroes learn to drive non super people vehicles so they can blend in as necessary half of them will grow up to have secret identities, after all , Barbara naturally chooses the motorcycle, because it is her destiny.Yee wisely shifts the novel s focus from the superhero aspects of our teen superheroes lives to the universal situations faced even by regular human teenagers without superpowers At the end of the day, this is primarily a story about a girl and her father readers know from Batman comics, which is what most Batgirl stories have always been about Commissioner Gordon wants his little girl to be safe and needs to learn to back off, Barbara Gordon wants to be a super hero, but needs to remember her father cares about her and has her best interest at heart Though I did find it quite funny that Gordon, who is on the faculty at Super Hero High, wants his daughter to go to Gotham City High School where she ll be safe It s like, Bro, do you even read Batman comics What makes Yee s version of Batgirl all the interesting is that she employs an intellectual response to her problems the same as her young readers can This is how she handles her father s objections to her attending a school for superheroes Barbara knew she couldn t argue with her dad s feelings She also knew he couldn t argue with facts Employing complex computer graphs and charts featuring a matrix of statistics to support her argument and supplemented by state of the art videos, she worked deep into the night The next day was Saturday That afternoon Barbara invited her father into the living room Her presentation took over an hour, and as Commissioner Gordon sat in his favorite chair nodding, neither smiling nor frowning, Barbara piled fact upon fact and reason upon reason as to why she should be allowed to go to Super Hero High.It s good that Barbara is ready to use her brain, as she s at a school where most of the students outmatch her in the brawn department Most of her fellow students were born with powers, or developed special skills at a young age Her peers had been nurtured at super hero preschools, then super hero elementary and middle schools Conversely, Batgirl was a latecomer and had to make up for a lot of lost time In doing everything she can to fit in with superheroes, not to mention running most of the school s IT needs, and taking care of a sick bat, and also competing in a reality show, Batgirl runs herself down and has to learn how to manage her time and her life, which is a lesson needed by most teens and their parents and everyone People think I m stressed, she told him But really, I m not Okay, okay, maybe a little Sometimes But not all the time Not when I m asleep She let out a too loud laugh Batgirl kept dreaming about all the things she was supposed to get done and would wake up exhaustedBatgirl at Super Hero High is a fun story filled with beloved characters used in new and interesting ways It s chock full of humor and charm and soars high look at me, I m Gene Shalit Although, even in the fantastical world of the DCU, one still runs across the occasional troll NO he yelled The sides of his mouth curled downward and there was insult in his eyes Not you Batgirl stopped In my day, super heroes could fly and move buildings, and were all men NOT GIRLS Mr Morris grumbled Batgirl continued to remove the shoes, then lent a hand to help him up Next time, he grumbled, I want a real super hero, not a girl Me, I just say that adds a degree of realism to a story, that while unrealistic, is absolutely accessible to younger readers You should absolutely add this series to your reading list and for sure check back here on Thursday to see Lisa Yee face the 7 Questions As always, I ll leave you with some of my favorite passages from Batgirl at Super Hero High No one dared move, and Miss Martian couldn t because Killer Frost had just frozen her, as a joke The only sound in the cavernous auditorium was a tiny ping coming from Cyborg s internal circuitry Batgirl felt an icy chill go through her entire body Ice to meet you, Captain Cold said When you meet new people, you should always hit them hard, and if that doesn t work, hit them harder Remember to always lead with a punch BOOM When I meet someone new, I prefer to lead with a smile, Batgirl said, offering her one Barda looked at her with suspicion.Everyone applauded and Cyborg smiled He had a nice smile Cyborg lifted his arm to wave, and wave, and wave It wasn t until a minute had passed that Batgirl realized he was malfunctioning and couldn t stop waving.The library installation had gone well Now students were able to access books and resource material from their dorm rooms, space vehicles, anywhere though many still congregated at the heavy wooden tables in the library that were lit with old fashioned green banker s lamps It feels so awesomely retro and academic to study in here, Hawkgirl whispered I know Batgirl agreed I know but this is where all the knowledge is I love the smell of information in this room Just as she was about to sniff an old leather bound copy of Ra s al Ghul s The Decline of the Ancient World, someone cried, THERE YOU ARE

    This review and many can be found on my blog Feed Your Fiction AddictionThese books are so incredibly adorable and fun My daughter loves the high school take on superheroes, and I have to admit that I kind of love them too.What Fed My Addiction Girl genius Unlike most of the other super heroes, Batgirl is just an ordinary girl with extraordinary smarts Her tech savvy makes her special and it gives her an edge that the other supers don t have.A sense of belonging Batgirl has doubts about her ability to fit in at Super Hero High even though she has friends there She doesn t know if she can be a real super hero since she doesn t have any innate abilities She can t keep up with the other students in a lot of areas especially gym, where there are some pretty high expectations of super heroes She has to learn to rely on and trust her strengths and not worry so much about her weaknesses It s a tough lesson that s not easily learned.Family troubles Batgirl isn t the only person who s afraid that she might not be cut out for Super Hero High She has a bit of an uphill battle because she has to convince her dad that she belongs there too He just wants to keep her safe because he s afraid to lose her, but she wants to follow in his footsteps and fight crime I loved the close relationship between Barbara Batgirl and her dad.What Left Me Hungry for More Competition My least favorite part of the book was the competition and how it all played out Batgirl s logic when it came to her feelings about the results didn t make a lot of sense to me I won t say what it was since that would be a spoiler But the competition and the results became central to the rest of the book, so it all ended up being necessary for the plot There were a couple of other minor inconsistencies, but I often give those a little leeway in MG books My daughter didn t seem to see any lapses in logic Overall, I thought this was another fun installment of a fantastic series for MG girls My daughter and I will definitely be keeping up with it I give this one 4 5 stars Disclosure I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review No other compensation was given and all opinions are my own

    Copy provided by the publisherBarbara Gordon has finally convinced her father, the Commissioner, to let her leave Gotham High and attend Super Hero High, where she had a joke as tech support She s worried that the students with powers won t like her, but she has a strong ally in Super Girl Her biggest problem is balancing everything her father insists she live at home, she is still doing some tech things, she adopts a baby bat, and gets picked to be on a teen tech challenge She is partnered with nerdy Noah Kuttler, and works well with him, but ultimately wins the entire competition Returning to school, she still struggles with classwork, and also is approached by Harley Quinn to do a tech innovation for her blog With Noah s help, she puts a hologram on Harley s web site, but things quickly go wrong, and instead of Harley Grams, there are Harley Whams, a virus that slowly takes over the whole country Having tricked her father into letting her live at school, Batgirl now moves home, doesn t answer her phone, and is about to give up on her super hero goals when her classmates help her pin point where everything went wrong and use their own powers to help her solve it Strengths It s great to see books with some comic book girl power, and there are some of my students who really love these Yee has clearly done her research into the DC canon of characters and has included a huge number of them Readers who haven t read the comics might be motivated to try them after these frenetically action packed stories Weaknesses I didn t like how Barbara pulled one over on her father to get him to let her live at school it didn t seem like a super hero move to me A small quibble My bigger one is that these are so packed with adventures and information about random characters that they are a bit hard to follow What I really think These fill a need but aren t my personal favorite I d rather see Yee turning her impressive writing skills to novels like Warp Speed or Stanford Wong Flunks Big Time, which have a bit staying power.
