Athena has always been above average. She's never quite fit in at Triton Junior High, but who would've guessed that Athena is actually a goddess? Principal Zeus's daughter, to be exact.
When she's summoned to Mount Olympus Academy, Athena thinks she might actually fit in for the first time in her life. But in some ways, school on Mount Olympus is not that different from down on Earth, and Athena is going to have to deal with the baddest mean girl in history - Medusa!
Follow the ins and outs of divine social life at Mount Olympus Academy, where the most privileged godboys and goddessgirls in the Greek pantheon hone their mythical skills.
A new series for the girls here and one that was fun, brought a whole new twist to the greek myths and of course created a story that was not only fun but one that thrust the ancient world into a modern situation that the readers will be able to not only associate but also have fun with.
The characters are quirky, they each have their own personalities and when the GoddessGirls get together, demonstrate that friendship, thinking and of course learning to cope with each others differences allow them to get the best out of their world. Add to this great dialogue and the book is one that will introduce your YA reader to a whole world of fun.

As Persephone's mum encourages her to do, she often "goes along to get along" instead of doing what she really wants. But when she meets Mount Olympus Academy bad-boy Hades, she finally feels she has found someone with whom she can be herself. He's the first person who actually listens to her, and she finds herself liking him, despite the fact that the other goddess girls think he's bad news. But if he makes her feel so special - and she's so comfortable hanging around him - can he really be all that bad? Authors Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams put a modern spin on classic myths with the Goddess Girls series. Follow the ins and outs of divine social life at Mount Olympus Academy, where the most privileged godboys and goddessgirls in the Greek pantheon hone their mythical skills.
Having read and enjoyed the first Goddess Girl book, I decided to give the second a go, after all, it combines Greek myth and puts it into a modern setting that many readers will be able to associate with. It was fun, it had wit and with the wonderful continuation of the Goddesses growing friendship also helps bring these stories to life.
Add to this a solid prose, a good pace and authors who are clearly in love with what they’re doing and you know it’s a book for young girls that will inspire curiosity as well as a sense of adventure.
