In this sequel to A Search for WondLa, Eva Nine and her friends are rescued and taken to the human colony of New Attica. Everything seems ideal and peaceful at the new colony, but things are not as they seem. When Eva Nine uncovers what is really going on at New Attica, she and her friends have to stop it before it spells doom for all of Orbona.
The highly anticipated new novel in the New York Times bestselling The Search for WondLa series.

Before the end of The Search for WondLa , Eva Nine had never seen another human, but after a human boy named Hailey rescues her along with her companions, she couldn't be happier. Eva thinks she has everything she's ever dreamed of, especially when Hailey brings her and her friends to the colony of New Attica, where humans of all shapes and sizes live in apparent peace and harmony.
     But all is not idyllic in New Attica, and Eva Nine soon realizes that something sinister is going on-and if she doesn't stop it, it could mean the end of everything and everyone on planet Orbona. 
     Introducing a host of remarkable characters that reinforce the importance of friendship, A Hero for WondLa has all the hallmarks of a classic book-of the future.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The bloom falls off of the rosy ending to The Search for WondLa (2010) in this second book of DiTerlizzi's trilogy. Hope for Eva Nine came in the form of a boy pilot and the first other human she's ever met who claims he will take her home. Home turns out to be the perfectly harmonious city of New Attica, sheltered from the rest of Orbona (aka Earth, way in the future after the planet got ruined and then colonized by aliens). But as with any utopia, there's a dark flip side to the idylls of New Attica, and its leader has grander, more nefarious plans in store. Packed with lavish, two-toned artwork (essential to visualizing the fullness of this bizarre world), the book also makes use of a webcam to draw readers into a unique online experience. DiTerlizzi's fascinating, if bloated, swizzle of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Star Wars, and Brave New World makes a few significant leaps forward here, especially in its treatment of a young girl weathering disillusionment while trying to find her place in a truly unknowable world, but it leaves enough unanswered questions in its pocket for the finale. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: If the buzz around this middle installment from the best-selling author and illustrator wasn't already loud enough, news of a major movie in the works should crank up the volume.--Chipman, Ian Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The sequel to DiTerlizzi's The Search for WondLa finds 12-year-old Eva Nine and her alien companion Rovender Kitt in the human city of New Attica. At first, this seems like the culmination of Eva's quest: raised by a robot in an underground sanctuary, she had been searching for humans like herself. But in New Attica, Eva begins to notice that her human peers have ulterior motives and hidden motivations. Narrator Teri Hatcher's performance of the book's dialogue is exceptional: she breathes life into each of the characters, differentiating them with distinct voices and vocal mannerisms. However, when she reads expository or descriptive passages, her voice becomes stilted. And this contrast will likely prove jarring to listeners-especially ones immersed in the story by the narrator's fine rendering of the characters. Ages 10-up. A Simon & Schuster hardcover.
