The cover is awesome. Love the colors and the girl power t-shirt.
It is diffidently a middle school grade, but I believe some older ones would also like it. Believe me I am a WHOLE lot older and I absolutely loved every page. Will be picking some of the other books that author Sybil Nelson has out.
So due to the above I will be, "and wish I could say a higher rating", I will be giving this book a Breath of Life Rating of:
Five Clock Rating!!!
Disclosure: I did receive the above book in exchange for my honest opinion and or review. But the Opinions are my own and yours may differ.
It's "The Incredibles" from the daughter's POV, and everything that comes from being an adolescent girl. But still has time to fight the evil military organization that either wants to kill or capture them.
Loved the main character, her two sidekicks, and family. I thought the author did a great job in describing them.
The only thing is that sometimes Priscilla went from acting like she was still in elementary school into having romantic feelings probaby a lot older than a 12 year old should have. I think it would have been better if the author had started off her age at about 15.
Will be continuing with the series.
Priscilla is just like any other 7th grade girl. She's got a mop of red hair, a overprotective father, a football playing brother, and a set of twin brothers. She and her best friend, Tai, have been plotting ways to get Priss' crush to finally crush back on her. Then, one day, Priss isn't so normal anymore. Right before school at the coolest pool party, her extremely hot crush makes her feel REALLY hot, hotter than she has ever felt before, her face is red and her body is definitely feeling 'off'. Pass it off as hormones, stress, or nerves, but when you can set fire to a bathroom towel by touching it, something has changed.
Priscilla learns at this point that she may never be normal again, and this fire thing? Is she going to scorch something every time she sees her favorite guy? This cannot be happening, and who is she going to tell? Who will believe her? The answer to that: more people than she realized, and it's an awful lot for her to understand. Oh yea - she is kidnapped and about to be killed now, did I forget to mention that? And her so-called super powers decide to take a vacation, not too super after all, huh?
I flew through this book! I loved the whole journey. It was fun, it was funny, it was exciting. I can't wait to keep going with this series. The way the author ended it was a cliffhanger I am too weak to resist.
We get to see a real family in this story. With all of the ups and downs of sibling relationships and parent/child drama. It all feels very real, even with the super powers thrown in. You can tell the family has a real dynamic to it. Who hasn't loved and hated their siblings all at the same time. The same is true in this family. One of my favorite parts is when a booger war is invoked to help the older brother out, even if he didn't realize it at the time. (Every family needs to experience a good booger war!)
Young adults and some of us not-so-young adults will rush to end of the book, when my Kindle said that I had hit the 100% mark...I was not a happy girl. I couldn't believe I finished it that quickly. I WILL be joining the gang for round two of Priscilla the Great!
I really liked all of the relationships in this book. Her parents are awesome, and become cooler and cooler as the book goes on. Her dad is huge, like Mr. Incredible huge, and her mom is always gone on "business." I really like how Priscilla's relationship with them develops as the book goes on. Priscilla's best girlfriend's name is Tai, and she's a genius who helps her get out of scrapes. Priscilla's best male friend is Spenser, who's a model, but she's always interested in other boys.
I loved the characters in this book. They're all larger than life, but this book pulls it off well. I enjoyed that Priscilla is a very regular girl, until she starts developing super powers. And, I really like the advice that her mom gives her. Her mom seems harsh at the first of the book, but by the end of the book, you get her mom's story and understand her. Priscilla's mom keeps encouraging Priscilla to use what she has, and tells Priscilla that she can figure out any problem. Priscilla takes her mom's advice over and over and solves tons of problems in unique ways, which I think is a great model and example for kids and everyone else.
I think everyone will enjoy this book, even though its target audience is 12-year old girls. You should definitely give it a try.
+Priscilla is awesome! She's a great role model.
+Excellent story, excellent writing
+Very fun book to read
+I look forward to reading the next one in the series
+Gives a great message of hope about figuring out any kind of problems
-It's not a perfect book. It has some consistency flaws and some other flaws. But, they really didn't bother me much because of how awesome the rest of the book was, so I'm not going to mention them.
