Editorial Reviews

Jessica Miller
“What a hilarious and fun middle grade read! I am so excited to find out that this is just book one in a series!... I definitely would recommend this to tween girls looking for a role model character...or boys that want something funny...or adults who love funny YA books...or well, anyone.”
Tiger Holland
“Oh, this one's hilarious. It's like a Percy Jackson and the Olympians book crossed with a Marvel comic and a really funny episode of iCarly… This book has everything--fantastic action scenes, a cool family, strong best friends, junior-high appropriate romance, superpowers, comedy, and a heroine to root for and adore. Great is definitely the appropriate word for Priscilla.”
Tawni Ann
“I couldn’t stop reading, it was definitely a page turner! I couldn’t help but to connect to Priscilla, because I was wishing I was as awesome as she was when I was in 7th grade! I also laughed out loud multiple times. This books was witty and fun and I recommend it to all ages!”
Kelly Brocklehurst
“I was sucked in from page one. Priscilla's voice is so authentic, not just in her dialog, but also in the narration… The story itself is fun. There's action, friendship, a tiny bit of romance--all the things I love. It's perfectly paced, and there was never a dull moment (totally cliche, I know, but totally true). Priscilla the Great is engaging and funny with characters that I loved and really cared about.”

I was mesmerized by the story and I couldn't put the book down. Even after I finished reading about it, I found myself wondering what would happen next. While reading the book, I found myself laughing out loud at Priscilla's quirky humor. Although Priscilla has super powers, she still reminds me of a normal 12 year old girl trying to enjoy her childhood. This book could very well become the next Harry Potter. The mixture of comedy, suspense, and action make it hard to stop reading.
