Our Bookseller says:

This is a version of Wonder Woman I didn’t know I needed. Set in the modern day, 16 year old Diana sees the effects of the refugee crisis, homelessness, hunger, poverty, and child trafficking. Bringing the Amazonian to face contemporary issues brings light to them and to the importance of compassion and understanding in a way that helps readers feel more connected to them and possibly even spur them to action to combat our modern plagues. Highly recommend for those looking to expand their understanding of the world or to make these large issues we hear about on the news more human. – Christine

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. Now Diana must survive in the world beyond Themyscira for the first time—a world that is 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.

Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed is a story about growing into your strength, fighting for justice, and finding home.
