Do you remember what it was like to be a teen? I remember those high school days all too well and I’m so glad they are over and behind me.
Now imagine those teen years if you had to try and hide a fluffy tail all the time. Fourteen-year-old Doreen Green moved from the sunny coast of California to the busy suburbs of New Jersey. She had to start at a new school and make new friends, all while trying to hide that fluffy tail and her squirrel superpowers.
The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World
After failing at several attempts to find her new BFF, Doreen feels lonely and trapped, like a caged animal. Then one day Doreen uses her extraordinary powers to stop a group of troublemakers from causing mischief in the neighborhood, and her whole life changes. Everyone at school is talking about it! Doreen contemplates becoming a full-fledged Super Hero. And thus, Squirrel Girl is born!
She saves cats from trees, keeps the sidewalks clean, and prevents vandalism. All is well until a real-life Super Villain steps out of the shadows and declares Squirrel Girl is archenemy. Can Doreen balance being a teenager and a Super Hero? Or will she go… NUTS?
