Wonder Woman's origin story gets a fresh retelling in DC's newest young adult graphic novel Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed. The official book trailer brings to life the work of acclaimed artist Leila del Duca, setting the scene of author Laurie Halse Anderson‘s timely story about the refugee experience, activism and finding the love and strength to create change.
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.
The contemporary spin to Diana Prince's story is exactly what young readers need and it sheds a new light on the beloved DC character. Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed follows Diana as she is separated from her family and her home and becomes a refugee and immigrant in a new world. As Diana battles for social justice and discovers new friendships, she must grow into her strength to begin a new life away from Themyscira.
