Monir deftly balances familiarity for DC fans and accessibility for new readers, blending superhero origin with coming-of-age tale in an excellent book for fans of comics and dystopian fiction, as well as reluctant readers.”—School Library Journal

“Dinah is a powerful protagonist, vibrating with a youthful rage and energy familiar to readers itching for revolution of any kind. Monir never shies away from her tale’s unfortunately pertinent sociopolitical implications, putting a refreshing spin on the feminist dystopia. … Sure to resonate in today’s volatile climate.”—Kirkus Reviews

“A compelling story of resistance, oppression, politics, feminism, rebellion, and revolution. A good story about finding your voice!” –Teen Librarian Toolbox/School Library Journal

“Using her voice as a weapon, Dinah Lance fights to overcome evil and empower girls and women the world over. [T]his prose origin story of superhero Black Canary will thrill you all the way through!”—MS. magazine

“Alexandra Monir gives us a thrilling new take on this superhero and leaves us feeling empowered and ready to scream with joy.”Danielle Paige, the New York Times best-selling author of the Dorothy Must Die series and Mera:Tidebreaker
