Little Miss Evil
Bryce Leung & Kristy Shen
When you live in a volcano, ride to school in a helicopter, and regularly see your dad on the news with the caption “EVIL GENIUS” underneath his picture, it takes a lot to rattle you.
Until you get a message that says: We have your father. Deliver the NOVA in 24 hours or we will kill him.
What’s a NOVA, you ask? It’s a nuclear bomb capable of turning the city into a radioactive mushroom cloud, and ever since Fiona’s dad built it, it’s caused nothing but grief. But telling him to stop building weapons is like telling Michelangelo to stop painting. And that’s why thirteen-year-old Fiona has a flamethrower strapped to her arm.
After all, who’d mess with a girl who can throw fireballs?
Apparently, these guys.

The Miranda Contract
For the past five years, Dan Galkin has been lying to everyone about just how ordinary he is. But Dan’s the grandson of The Mad Russian: one of the world’s most powerful, and insane, supervillains. And Dan has powers too. He’s a living battery, able to absorb and discharge electricity with his mind. Normally he keeps his powers hidden, but when the old man returns with an offer to make his grandson heir apparent, any chance at an ordinary life is blown apart.
Miranda Brody thought she wanted to be a pop star, but now she’s got the international profile and the entourage, she doesn’t recognize the Miranda she has become. After getting caught up in the cross-fire between Dan and his grandfather, Miranda realizes there’s more to life than being famous. Staying alive, for example, becomes a high priority. And not falling in love with the pizza boy comes a close second.
Labeled by society, trapped by expectation.
Dan and Miranda might actually be able to change everything.
As long as they don’t kill each other first.
