    Wonderfully fun book. My kids love the DC Superhero Girls and this book was a "can't put down" book for our family.

    I received this title as an ARC through The Story Shop.DC Super Hero Girls: Search for Atlantis is a continuation of the super-heroes-in-training lifestyle of the students at Super Hero High. Narrated partially from the perspective of Bumblebee, the group of crime fighters venture off on what should be a field trip but soon escalates into an exciting mission to save Atlantis. This graphic novel explores change through friendships and differences ...

    As much as I enjoy reading these books just for me, I also try to read them for kids' Readers Advisory at work and I liked this book a lot for what it shows kids: that as the new kid in school you can find awesome new friends; that if you're making new friends, it's not okay to abandon your old ones; and that if you feel like an old friend is pulling away as they make new friends, it's not okay to treat that new friend badly and it's better to tr...

    Thanks to DC for providing an ARC at the American Library Association conference! This book was cute and earnest would be great for middle grade readers who aren’t ready for DC’s darker stuff. Not much violence, plus I really appreciated that the outfits were not sexualized.The story itself was engaging, and showed the power of teamwork and playing to each individual’s skills, why it’s important to grow as a person, and the value of frien...

    My kids are older so I read this for me because I love these characters. What a joy this was. The friendships are really fun and there is, what I think, an important jealousy subplot which resonates for everyone. Who doesn't feel a moment of worry when friends find new friends. What will your role be in their lives? This explores how we grow together. And for the younger set it is a good outlet in acknowledging feelings. For the older? The same.I...

    [I received an electronic review copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.]This series just gets better and better. I loved the focus on Bumblebee, Raven and Miss Martian as well as Mera in this one. The hero/villain conflict was great with tension building from chapter to chapter. And through it all is a relateable thread of jealousy when it seems Bumblebee's best friend, Wonder Woman, is spendin...

    This is the weakest of the three I've seen in this series. When it brings Brainiac into proceedings as the baddie, when it turns out he's shrunk Atlantis and made off with it, you doubt these characters will succeed in pulling off action against him, and you doubt it correctly. They can't – but at least they try, with their shrinking this and enlarging that, but it's a case of perpetually working out who is friends with whom that takes most of ...

    * I received a digital copy from the publisher through NetGalley. This does not affect my review.*This was the first I have read of this series,, and though it wasn't my favorite read this year, it was fun to see the new take on some well known comic characters. I loved the artwork and the bright, vibrant colors used, and found the action and dialog easy to follow. I felt the plot and characters could use some work, but it might just be where I"m...

    I was so happy to get this as an advanced reader's copy because our patrons are HUGE DC superhero fans. The DC Super Hero Girls especially is a very popular series with our community. The illustrations were beautifully executed with strong color choices and the dialog spoken was very easy to understand, clever and full of wit. A excellent choice for our graphic novel superhero collection. This will be a hit with our patrons. One I will definitely...

    Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for an arc of this comic. It was enjoyable, cute and funny. Just like the movies. Also, this seems to be the first time the Teen Titans are called that so that was fun. Miss Martian was a cool character and a great addition to the team.

    Got this free at the ALA conference (donated to Riley Children's Hospital library). Really cute story/ illustrations; interesting how Beast Boy refers to cute ladies as "mama" lol.
