    After 16-year-old Bruce Wayne is expelled from boarding school for fighting, he returns to Gotham City, where he enrolls in Gotham High. There, he reacquaints himself with neighbor—and narrator—Selina Kyle, as well as bad boy Jack Napier. When fellow student Harvey Dent, after being mistaken for Bruce, is kidnapped and held for ransom, Bruce sets out to find the culprit. Superhero fans will appreciate this fresh take on the Batman universe, meeting young superheroes and supervillains before they emerge into their future personas. De la Cruz has shaped a diverse cast of characters by taking welcome liberties with their backstories: Bruce's mother is a Hong Kong native, his uncle Alfred is married to John Pennyworth, and Selina is Latinx. The story maintains the gritty style found in the Tom King series, yet it paints the characters sympathetically, portraying them as typical teenagers (vaping, flirting, making out). Pitilli's illustrations are detailed and Rodriguez's colors dark, enhancing the mysterious tone. Offer this to fans of teenage superhero tales, especially the DC Icons series. Grades 8-12.
