Educating Villains


Walden, Mark H.I.V.E.: Higher Institute of Villainous Education, 309 p. Simon and Schuster, 2007. One day Otto is saving his orphanage home from eminent closure - the next he finds himself in a helicopter, headed towards a secret school for nascent villains. Already placed at the top of the class, an Alpha Villain, Otto is determined to gather a team of liked minded Alphas, find his way out off of the island and back to his life. I was surprised to find a villain book that can buck the trend and create a villain (maybe) worth rooting for. EL, MS - ESSENTIAL

This looks fantastic! Makes me wish I were in a middle school. I'll pass the review on to our middle school librarian. Maybe she'll get it--and let me borrow it!
