Batgirl at Super Hero High by Lisa Yee Audio Book
Barbara Gordon has always been a smart introverted teenager, staying in the shadows working in the tech department. When Supergirl sees her talent and recruits her to Super Hero High, Barbara will get a chance to really let Batgirl shine!
I loved the story line of this book! I think it's amazing that the main character, Batgirl, is essentially just a normal girl. She's intelligent, hard-working, and perhaps most importantly, she doesn't even have any super powers. Everything she does is based on her talents.
Another thing that is interesting to me is that even though she's a superhero, she deals with many of the same issues as average girls, such as peer pressure and fitting in. I can confidently let my girls listen to this story and not have to worry about any negative influence. I know we'll definitely enjoy listening to these stories together!
My only complaint is the narration by Mae Whitman. I felt that in some ways, it fell a little flat and could have used a little more emotion. However, I don't feel as if this has affected the story in a negative way. I rate this audio book as 5 stars.
I received this book for free from Blogging For Books in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
