But with the help of my genius best friend, Tai, we’re gonna bring down the evil Selliwood Institute, an organization dead set on turning children into killing machines.

    4.0 von 5 Sternen Courtesy of Teens Read Too 23. September 2011
    Format:Taschenbuch
    PRISCILLA THE GREAT is filled with enough action to satisfy even a hard-to-please middle grade reader. It's a Fantastic Four-type adventure but with a middle school twist.

    Priscilla isn't particularly popular. She is into video games and comic book heroes. Her best friend, Kyle, offers her some competition, but most of the time he is afraid she'll beat him to a pulp. She beats him in video games and basketball, but amazingly he keeps coming back for more.

    When Priscilla begins developing some strange abilities, even her extremely intelligent friend, Tai, can't figure out what is going on. The first unusual characteristic Priscilla seems to be exhibiting is the ability to set things on fire. It is an overheated feeling that accelerates to the point that Priscilla's fingertips become like flame throwers. Next, she notices a dramatic increase in her strength. These powers are accompanied by other strange feelings, and keeping them under control is a challenge.

    At the same time Priscilla is struggling to understand the odd changes in her body, her father is being his usual over-protective self - requiring her to check in multiple times a day and not allowing any sort of after school activities or social life. Not having a cell phone is bad enough, but not being allowed to join in on the traditional festivities of middle school life is taking its toll.

    Priscilla has taken a sudden interest in one particular boy. She would love nothing more than to have a woman-to-woman talk with her mother, but that's impossible. Her mom is always away on business. That woman's job is at the top of her priority list, with her family way down on the bottom.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Priscilla the Great book review 22. Dezember 2010
    Von C. C. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Taschenbuch
    I have to admit I wasn't sure of what to expect with Priscilla. It sounded awesome, but would it be awesome? I wasn't very sure.

    Boy, I was wrong.

    I found myself liking Priss from the first chapter - literally. She is, in one word, awesome. (I know, I need to broaden my horizons vocabulary-wise, but this is works really well in here). If she were real, I'd want her to be my friend. She is a fun, feisty, determined, and really cool girl, and the way she dealt with everything was very realistic (with that I mean she was neither too mature nor too immature) and I really liked the mix of action and Middle School drama. I thought that was so. Damn. Cool.
    About the boys, I can't say much, but it's pretty obvious from the beginning someone has a thing for her, and I absolutely adore when boys do't know what to say when they like a girl. It's so endearing.
    Now, to the genius bff. I can't say this is very original, but it really works with the storyline, and Tai definitely won me over.

    This book is full of action and I was always either laughing like crazy, or awing like crazy (is that even a verb?) or giggling like crazy. I was never bored, never pissed off at anyone. This is a highly entertaining read, and though it's obviously aimed at Middle Grade audiences, I think older people would enjoy it too.

    Now, when is the next one coming?

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Priscilla The Great is just that 22. Januar 2011
    Von Wayne Zurl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
    I don't often read YA books. But because I knew just how well Sybil Nelson writes, I made an exception. Good choice for an old man.

    The young heroine, Priscilla Sumner and her best friend Tai Houston are cool kids. They must endure all the hardships the average 7th grader can look forward to and deal with pesky things like kidnappers, assassins running amuck, a power-hungry organizatiuon bent on world domination, and the occasional school-yard bully.

    An ordinary girl would be unable to deal with all that, but Priscilla is "the great." And she was born with a power that makes all her adventures a little easier. Go and read about it.

    This book has oodles of humor, action, and something many 21st century bestsellers lack--a good story.

    If you don't have a young adult to buy a book for, read this yourself. I'm glad I did and am pleased that I have a place to review it and recommend it to everyone.

    Keep'em coming, Sybil.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazingly Funny 19. Dezember 2010
    Von Angela Fristoe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Taschenbuch
    Priscilla the Great is a wonderfully funny book! I have had the pleaure of reading this book and, as a grade school teacher, I have plans to get a copy for my classroom as well. Priss in no simpering heroine, waiting to be rescued by a cute boy. She's spunky and has a great sense of humor. Priss really is a positive role model for girls. Priscilla's younger brothers add a little bit of grossness to the story that boys will appreciate as well. I would definitely recommend Priscilla the Great to anyone looking for something for their child.

    2.0 von 5 Sternen Hear me out, this book was awful. 19. Februar 2013
    Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    I feel like since most every review on here has been positive, I am very clearly in the minority, but I will try to be fair, as I did give the book two stars and not just one. Here's why.

    The pros:

    >It's inexpensive. You can't get much freer than free which is always appreciated, especially since I have so little money to part with from being in college and all.
    >It's a very easy read and has some length to it, so it will not be read too quickly.
    >The details/imagery aren't horrible...and are sometimes not bad.

    The cons:
    >The largest one, everything is predictable. Everything. I mean, Everything. I can't stress that word enough. I will not give any spoilers but anytime you think something is about to happen, it does, and quite obnoxiously so.
    >The characters are completely unbelievable. I couldn't get behind any single character, as I found all of them unrealistic and irritating.
    >The dialogue is cheap and forced. "Holy hot dogs" was painful to have to read and this was only one of many examples.
    >Reading the book made me extremely uncomfortable and actually, for the first time in my entire life, caused me physical pain (a nagging headache from the frustration), but I kept reading it until I could bare it no longer around the 80th page.

    I really did try to give it a chance even though I could predict everything that was about to happen, the dialogue was cheap, not one of the characters was worth reading about, and I developed a small headache every time I winced from how uncomfortable the book made me, but when the issue of infidelity came up as it was so obvious it would, I was done.

    Again, I don't expect many people to agree with me, I'm just giving my take on the book as it seems only fair to do. I wouldn't advise against reading this book as I'm sure many people can find some value/interest in it, but I would definitely suggest putting it at the bottom of a long list of other books, which would hopefully be headlined by greats like Wonder!

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Not just for young adults! 8. August 2011
    Von Crichton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    Priscilla the Great, the Funny, the Endearing... I loved this book and I am decidedly NOT a young adult.

    Sybil Nelson captured perfectly what I imagine it would be like for a young girl to find out she had superpowers. All of the characters are wonderful.

    A fun read!

    One caution, and this in no way changes the rating:
    Priscilla feels her powers are in some way connected to her menstruation and, at one point, she "tricks" a male friend into buying her sanitary napkins. There is obviously nothing wrong with this, I just wanted to mention it in case some parent doesn't feel they are ready to explain this to their younger childer or just to let the parent know that the questions might be coming. I don't have children, so I don't know how young they find out [I was in either 5th or 6th grade, but I know things are done younger these days], so it may be a non-issue. Again, nothing wrong with it, I just wanted parents to be informed.
