She's super-strong. She can fly. She crash-landed on Earth in a rocket ship. But for Kara Danvers, winning the next track meet, celebrating her 16th birthday and surviving her latest mega-zit are her top concerns. And with the help of her best friends and her kinda-infuriating-but-totally-loving adoptive parents, she just might be able to put her troubling dreams --- shattered glimpses of another world --- behind her. Until an earthquake shatters her small town of Midvale...and uncovers secrets about her past she thought would always stay buried.
