Gr 8 Up—Living in a world hostile to her and her community, Black teenage superhero Nubia is forced to balance
her need for self-preservation with her desire to stand up for those in trouble. Rose-colored artwork belies Nubia's
often less than rosy struggles. This poignant, relatable story reminds readers of the sometimes necessary risks of
trying to build a better world.

Ugh. Purchased for a lunchtime read, but couldn't get thru the entire hour. The story may turn out to be good (despite other reviews), but the writing was bad enough that I didn't want to wait to find out.

This is excellent!

Finally, justice for Bertha! I enjoyed this different concept in a Jane Eyre retelling. I feel like the characters could have been fleshed out more, and the romantic feelings between Bertha and Jane needed to be more convincing. I adore the original JANE EYRE, but it was fun to see Rochester painted as he was in this story.
