Can you be a hero...if society doesn''t see you as a person?

Nubia has always been a little bit...different. As a baby she showcased Amazonian-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.
