Synopsis via Goodreads

Meet Priscilla Sumner, an ordinary seventh grader with extraordinary gifts. As if middle school isn’t hard enough, not only does Priscilla have to fight pimples and bullies, but genetically enhanced assassins trying to kill her and her family. Armed with wit, strength, and a genius best friend, Priscilla must defeat the Selliwood Institute, an organization dead set on turning children into killing machines.

Add an older brother annoyingly obsessed with Christina Aguilera, mischievous baby twin brothers who could scare the sin off of Satan, and parents more puzzling than a Rubik’s cube in the Bermuda triangle and expect a smoking page-turner!

Noteworthy Passages

Priscilla; pg. 64
"What's the matter, Kyle? Afraid you'll lose to a girl...again?" Iasked. That worked. I could basically get Kyle to do anything I wanted by threatening his manhood.

Priscilla; 178
Well, time really flies when you have a date with destiny, and by the time Kyle was done with his pep talks, I truly felt like defeating Jimmy Vartanian in the Ice Cream Challenge was my destiny. It was like G.I. Joe versus Cobra, like the Autobots versus the Decepticons, or Anybody versus the Yankees. It was your classic good versus evil.

Priscilla; pg. 211
I scorched her hair. Needless to say, she wasn't too happy about this. With a nerve-racking war cry that could make Attila the Hun pee his pants, she came at me agin.
