Some superheroes start fighting crime early, and this fish-out-of-water tale of an Amazonian princess in the Big Apple has charm and heart to spare. Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed by Laurie Halse Anderson and Leila del Duca portrays Diana as a boisterous, gutsy, and compassionate 16-year-old trying to figure out how the world works. Anderson devises a down-to-earth plot that plays to the protagonist's strengths but does not feel the need for giant-scale superheroics. Del Duca captures the character's beauty but also gives her a note of earthiness. Diana saves the day more than once, but she's not all-powerful in the way that the adult version of her character can sometimes seem. Suspenseful, funny, and timely, Tempest Tossed is a wild and valuable ride for newcomers and longtime fans.
