Book Description: 
A behind-the-scenes look at the creation and evolution of Wonder Woman, the iconic character who has inspired generations of girls and women as a symbol of female strength and power.

Perhaps the most popular female superhero of all time, Wonder Woman was created by Bill Marston in 1941, upon the suggestion of his wife, Elizabeth. Wonder Woman soon showed what women can do—capture enemy soldiers, defeat criminals, become president, and more. Her path since has inspired women and girls while echoing their ever-changing role in society. Now a new group of devoted young fans enjoy her latest films, Wonder Woman and Wonder Woman 1984, and await a third installation being planned for theatrical release. This exceptional book raises up the many women who played a part in her evolution, from Elizabeth Marston to writer Joye Hummel to director Patty Jenkins, and makes clear that the fight for gender equality is still on-going.

Stork’s On the Hook is a superbly crafted contemporary drama with intense situations, violent confrontations and believable reticence to act that spin Hector, our HS sophomore chess wiz protagonist, into an almost debilitating lust for revenge after tragedy strikes , then throws the story into an unexpected plot twist. A simple, but weighty question - “Do you have anyone you don’t want to disappoint?” stirs the dynamic “balance” and upends the tension as the heart-pounding climax races to a satisfying end. Give this stunner to fans of Angie Thomas, Jason Reynolds and Matt Mendez. - Reviewed by Maureen
