  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 May #2
    When raft-borne refugees are blown into Themyscira's seas on Princess Diana's sixteenth Born Day, she attempts to help them and is swept away from her home, unable to return. A stint in a refugee camp results in her relocation to Queens, New York, where she's taken in by a Polish immigrant and her social justice-minded granddaughter. Anderson (Shout, 2019) has beautifully reconceived Diana's origins, focusing on her awkward, superpower-lacking "changeling" (teenage) years and giving the character her own immigration story. As Diana learns about American (and mortal) culture, she finds much to love, even as she's faced with challenges that will resonate with today's teens: toxic masculinity, poverty, systemic injustice, and ultimately, a child-trafficking ring that preys upon the marginalized. Del Duca captures the delicate balance between the awkward changeling and the nascent superheroine as Diana—in jeans, a t-shirt, and Bracelets of Submission—finds power through her rage, foiling the kidnapping scheme and settling into her new home. A powerfully relevant take on an iconic character. Grades 8-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
