I very recently just finished reading the book Priscilla the Great by Sybil Nelson. This book is about a seemingly ordinary 12 year old girl who discovers she has super powers that she inherits from her mother. All her life, her mother has been away, traveling the world under the ruse of being a pharmacist. However, it turns out her mother has been out trying to save the world from the evil Selliwood Academy, a place where children are turned into heartless violent machines. Will Priscilla be able to help defeat the Selliwood Academy? Read Priscilla the Great to find out.
