Nubia has always been a little bit...different. As a baby she showcased Amazon-like strength by pushing over a tree to rescue her neighbor's cat. But despite her having similar abilities* the world has no problem telling her that she's no Wonder Woman. And even if she were* they wouldn't want her. Every time she comes to the rescue* she's reminded of how people see her: as a threat. Her moms do their best to keep her safe* but Nubia can't deny the fire within her* even if she's a little awkward about it sometimes. Even if it means people assume the worst. When Nubia's best friend* Quisha* is threatened by a boy who thinks he owns the town* Nubia will risk it all her safety* her home* and her crush on that cute kid in English class to become the hero society tells her she isn't. From the witty and powerful voice behind A Blade So Black* and with endearing and expressive art by Robyn Smith* comes a vital story for today about equality* identity* and kicking it with your squad.
