To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This collection is quite fun, if not quite what I first thought it would be. I bought the book hoping for a collection of short stories about female superheroes. Instead, this is a collection of vignettes. Each hero is brand new and includes a character-sheet-style breakdown of appearance, name, origin, powers, costume, etc, before a 3-10pg scene involving the hero (there's also some illustrations of a few of these characters at the end).
Sometimes, we get an origin scene, sometimes a battle, or sometimes an inner monologue. I love the new characters, but I deeply wish that we were getting fully developed stories. I want to read their stories, not snippets of their stories. That's the only thing keeping this from a 5-star review.
Im sure most people have read about the awful stuff in the news concerning the plight of women globally. well, I found this to be a refreshing escape from all that and a great perspective on powerful female characters in literature. It is a book of short stories which is a great advantage for the purpose of the book. instead of having one authors point of view, you have many. and those authors tell tales of their view on feminine power and what it means to be a super heroine. there are so many great ideas, characters and stories inside and the core concept is presented in about as many different ways as you can imagine. it is absolutely worth reading but one to think about after you finish it. isn't that exactly what you would want from a book?
Fantastic. Very well written. This is a wonderful collection of stories about female superheroes. Little girls don't have very many superheroes to look up to like little boys do. I'm very happy with this and bought several paper copies as well as the digital copy. I plan to give one to all the little girls in my life. I could read this over and over. This is a must have for any little girl who wants someone to look up to besides batman or superman.

I'm very happy with this, and bought several copies, one for each of my girls and for my niece. I also bought the digital copy so I could read it first on my kindle. I could read this over and over again. This is a must have for any little girl who wants someone to look up to besides batman or superman.
