Wonder Woman at Super Hero High

9781524751241. YEE, Lisa. Batgirl at Super Hero High. 4 CDs. 4:28 hrs. Listening Library. Jan. 2017. $24.99. ISBN 9781524751289. digital download.
Gr 4–6—In Wonder Woman, Ashley Eckstein voices the Amazonian princess who is away from her home, Themyscira, for the very first time. As she navigates high school, extracurricular activities, and everyone's expectations, Wonder Woman strives to become a true leader. Supergirl is still trying to deal with the fact that her parents are gone, her planet is destroyed, and she now has superpowers that are very hard to control. Anais Fairweather brings her to life. Mae Whitman voices Batgirl as she deals with her obstacles and lack of powers. These three audiobooks take listeners on a whirlwind journey of heroes, special classes such as weaponomics, and everyday teenage drama. However, those who are already familiar with the characters will be frustrated by the inconsistency of the canon. For example, Supergirl is not really Superman's cousin in this version, and many students at Super Hero High are known villains in DC Comics. In the grand scheme of things, these are all small conflicts, which will not matter much to most listeners.
VERDICT All three audiobooks are extremely fun and enjoyable.
