I've been enjoying this incarnation of Batgirl so much. But it should come as no surprise that Barbara has too many irons in the fire and it's causing chaos. Nightmares. Forgetting things. Oh yeah, so not her style. Thank goodness for her fantastic friends stepping in without question to support her!
I loved that this story arc was filled with diverse characters and that Batgirl is teamed up with a group of female heroes. This'll be a really great series for teen readers.
It looks like this volume ended this particular story arc as DC moves into Rebirth with a new volume that picks up where this one leaves off. I was admittedly a little disappointed with the direction it went but I'm planning to stay for the journey.

THE BATTLE FOR BURNSIDE IS ON!
She rides a cool motorcycle, swings a mean right hook, and has backup from the best crime-fighters in the biz, but Batgirl’s greatest weapon has always been her mind. As the brilliant Barbara Gordon, she’s on the verge of a tech breakthrough that could transform her beloved Burnside neighborhood, and all of Gotham City to boot—though if it falls into the wrong hands, it could just as easily devastate them.
But how can Batgirl stop a hacker who can break into her brain itself?
A sinister figure has been haunting Batgirl’s nightmares and stealing all her secrets, from her high-tech innovations to her hidden identity. And he’ll use that knowledge to destroy her forever.
Now Batgirl must assemble a band of her best friends and closest allies—including Spoiler, Black Canary, Batwing and more—to stop the most dangerous enemy she’s ever known, or Burnside and the entire Bat-family will burn…
It all comes down to this! The revolutionary creative team of Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher, and Babs Tarr bring the saga of the Batgirl of Burnside to a close in BATGIRL VOL. 3: MINDFIELDS. Be there for the shocking climax to one of the greatest Batgirl stories ever told!
