Gr 9 Up—While many teenagers have a challenging time dealing with school and peer pressure, for 15-year-old Danny Tozer, life is a little more complicated. For starters, she is transgender and living in a world where superheroes and supervillains exist. When Danny unexpectedly becomes the recipient of popular superhero Dreadnought's mantle, the superpowers also transform her body into the female one she has always identified with. Because Danny is not yet an adult, the Legion of Superheroes is divided on how to approach her unique situation. Her father is in denial that his son is now his daughter, and has been verbally abusive toward Danny. A promise of romance adds a further layer when Danny's best friend wants to date her. There are some violent fight scenes when Danny sets off to find Dreadnought's killer. There are also some light moments that offset the deeper questions about establishing identity. VERDICT This first title in the series offers a rich, unusual mix of subjects and themes for fantasy fans.—Vivian Ho, Port Washington Public Library, NY
“I didn’t know how much I needed this brave, thrilling book until it rocked my world. Dreadnought is the superhero adventure we all need right now.”―Charlie Jane Anders, author of All the Birds in the Sky
“A thoroughly enjoyable, emotionally rich, action-packed story with the most exciting new superheroes in decades. Unmissable.”―Kirkus Starred Review
“…A fascinating exploration of gender identity in a fantastical setting.”―Publishers Weekly
“This first title in the series offers a rich, unusual mix of subjects and themes for fantasy fans.”―School Library Journal
“I’m not normally a fan of superhero narratives, and then I find an exception that grabs me by the throat and makes me love it. Dreadnought is one of those exceptions.” ―Liz Bourke, Tor.com
“Dreadnought is a coming-of-age story: it’s all about Danny coming to terms with her own power and her own agency, not just as a superhero, but as a person (and as a person who chooses to be a superhero), and it’s one that doesn’t shy away from consequences, either. People get hurt, sometimes badly―sometimes killed, and it’s this willingness to highlight the fact that standing up doesn’t come without real cost that gives Dreadnought its real heart.”―Locus Magazine

In a dozen different ways, it is all about Identity. From the villain's ultimate evil plan, to the claiming of the colors, to minds bound under the control and opinion of others, to the simple acceptance who and what the MC is.
Who you are is what matters, if you just claim it with your entire heart.
Wonderfully told, well edited, a joy to read.
Love the protagonist, the consistent and engaging characters, the very real-feeling friendships, and the level of awareness of the author in engaging with a variety of complicated issues.
Beyond Danny's parallel struggles with identity which are at the center of the narrative of this book it has some of the best battle descriptions I've read in a long while. I felt anxious as Danny went into each fight, the stakes were high in each battle, and when she won there was palpable relief.
I look forward to reading the next book in the series and am excited to see where April Daniels takes us next.
