Summary: Fiona's dad is a villain. They live in a volcano. She flies to school in a helicopter. And every year on her birthday, her father gives her some kind of weapon to prepare her for a future as a villain. The problem is, Fiona doesn't want to be evil. She wants to be seen as a regular kid. Then, the volcano base is attacked and her father is kidnapped. The only way to get him back is to hand over a nuclear bomb. It will take all of her skills for Fiona to get him back. And she just might have to get a little bit evil.

My Opinion: Could this book be any more fun? You've got all the classic super-villain types here: the greedy for gold, the power-mad, and the over the top evil-for-the-sake-of-evil screwball. It might not be great literature, but there are a lot of good things happening here. Characters all have at least a little depth. Life is portrayed as complex, a series of tough choices. Mostly, though, it is incredibly entertaining.
