The Adventures of Superhero Girl

by Faith Erin Hicks. Milwaukie, OR: Dark Horse Publications, 2013


Superhero girl is a multifaceted nuanced character who while having super powers is so very 'normal.'  While chock-full of superheroes and  full of fun and adventure, this book is really about  real life. It's about friendship, sibling rivalry, about not trying to be oneself and not succumb to parental/peer pressure.


To do this Faith Erin Hicks continuously pokes fun of stereotypes as her characters deal with life, challenges, and struggles we all have to meet while pursuing dreams.
