This book reminded me a little bit of Sky High, the movie. Super-heroine in school with awesome parents. It was a fun book, it just wasn't WOW for me. I liked the characters, the story, etc, but sometimes it was a bit of cliche, like, for example, the mean-chinese-superstrong-girl, the kick-ass mom (just like Sky High)... But it was enjoyable and Priss is a nice heroine; she is funny, sarcastic and loyal. It would have been better if she was older than 12, cuz I think all the situation will have fitted better with a 15-year-old girl than a little girl, but maybe it is just me, cuz I'm older hehe.
