Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed
On the hidden island of Themyscira, home of the Amazons, Diana has been eagerly awaiting her sixteenth birthday, when she hopes to become a true warrior. Instead, Diana’s birthday finds her people dealing with holes in the barrier that protects them from the outside world. When Diana leaves Themyscira through one such hole, her only thought is to save the refugees who need temporary shelter on her island’s shores. Instead, Diana finds herself trapped on the outside, a refugee in her own right. Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed gives readers a glimpse into the superhero’s teenage years. In a story that is all too relevant to modern times, this graphic novel delves into issues of love, strength, and activism. Bestselling YA author Laurie Halse Anderson brings Diana to life, building a strong personality for her and creating a story that many readers can relate to on one level or another. And artist Leila del Duca’s illustrations truly do the character and the story justice, visually showing the characters and the setting in a perfect blend of classic comic art and modern style. This book is both deeply enjoyable for long-term Wonder Woman fans and a fantastic introduction to the character for newer readers.
