Wonder Squadron | Book Club 17 | Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed

:wondersquadron1: Princess Diana of Themyscira believes that her 16th birthday will be one of new beginnings-namely, acceptance into the warrior tribe of the Amazons. But her birthday celebrations are cut short when rafts carrying refugees break through the barrier that separates her island home from the outside world. When Diana defies the Amazons to try to bring the outsiders to safety, she finds herself swept away by the stormy sea. Cut off from everything she’s ever known, Diana herself becomes a refugee in an unfamiliar land, and must survive in the world beyond Themyscira for the first time—a world filled with danger and injustice unlike anything she’s ever experienced. With new battles to be fought and new friends to be made, she must redefine what it means to belong, to be an Amazon, and to make a difference.

Me too :heavy_heart_exclamation: Picked this up not long ago and it sounds really interesting. I’m finishing Bloodspell and Nubia Real One, but this one is next!

Nice! Just so you know, this club has covered Real One before, so when you finish that, I’m sure we’d like to hear your thoughts there! :smiley:

If you’re enjoying Real One you’ll like this one. Both are among the better YA I’ve read from DC.

Ah I remember this book. It was quite nice, though I wish it had gotten a sequel of some sort.

Just finished this one earlier tonight and I rather liked it. It felt like a strong, different way to bring about a young Diana to Man’s World but in a way that still feels true to the character. Like @nuuninuunani, I would have loved to have seen more of this world and where Diana would have gone next.

I’ve only just started this tonight, but I’m enjoying it quite a bit. Might not have tried it without a push - thanks for the suggestion, @Razzzcat!

This is one of my new favorite DC YA novels. It was a very powerful coming of age story. Diana is relatable in her struggles with growing up, but this story also deals with some very serious topics, like homelessness and refugees. In the process of trying to help she poetically finds herself with no where to call home. It was handled beautifully, and Diana gets a lot of opportunities to display her compassion for humanity, which is all perfectly fitting considering who it’s about. Overall, the reader is reminded that there are people in the world who don’t have a place to call home and that empathy is always the most powerful tool. :heavy_heart_exclamation: :wonderwoman: I’m sayin’ 4.5 out 5.

I agree that I’d have liked a sequel. I decided to try Warbringer next. Found a used copy on…Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Wonder-Woman-Warbringer-DC-Icons/dp/0399549730
