Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Goddess Girls series by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams puts a modern spin on classic Greek myths! 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.

About the Author

Joan Holub is the author of over 125 books for young readers, including Groundhog Weather School, Vincent van Gogh Sunflowers and Swirly Stars, Zero the Hero, Who Was Marco Polo?, Bed Bats & Beyond, and the Doll Hospital chapter book series. Of the four goddessgirls, she's probably most like Athena because she loves to brainstorm new ideas for books. But she's very glad her dad was never the principal of her school! Visit her at joanholub.com

Suzanne Williams is the author of over 30 books for young readers, including Library Lil, Mommy Doesn't Know My Name, My Dog Never Says Please, and the Princess Power and Fairy Blossoms series. Her husband says she's the Goddess of Annoying Questions. (Most having to do with why her computer misbehaves.) That makes her kind of like Pandora except that Pandora never had to deal with computers. Suzanne lives near Seattle in Washington state. Visit her at suzanne-williams.com

It was interesting that the book compared Egyptian mythology as well as Greek.
Surinder Daulla
In her Lonely Hearts Club a mortal from Egypt wants love and sends a letter to the goddess of love but Aphrodite only gets half.

This book is a real page turner and I really hope everyone will love it once they finish reading too.

Format: Paperback
I really adore this series. The Goddess Girls is a fun series that allows young readers a chance to get to know the young Greek Goddess and Gods, while sharing empowering messages with it's readers. In past books the messages have been about being true to yourself, loyalty, being strong, being a true friend and being proud of who you are. With each book, the characters deal with much of the same things or similar things their readers do. These young Gods and Goddess learn to deal with fitting in, first crushes, new friendships, dealing with bullies, school life and finding out who they are. I love that as the series continues, we not only see more of the characters, but with each new book a different Goddess Girl tells the story.

I adore Aphrodite! Aphrodite is the school's main diva and resident match maker. Aphrodite gains a new rival, who's just a good at match making as she is when Isis from Eygpt arrives. Aphrodite and Isis have a lot of the same qualities and while they're both competing against each other, they don't stoop to the level of being mean towards each other. I really admired that about the two characters. Even with all the rumors that are going around about them, they still maintain a level of respect towards each other which keeps their competition friendly, when it could have quickly become turned into something ugly.

I really enjoyed getting to know Aphrodite. She definitely reminds me of friends I had in school who wanted to match their friends up with boys they thought were cute. Aphrodite does a great job with her matches. She's a fun character to get to know. I'm hoping we'll get to see if her matches are still going strong as the series continues. I love that this series keeps the romantic part of the story very age appropriate.

Excuse me, a D in Hero-logy? Aphrodite deserved nothing better than an A in everything. Everyone A-dored her, A-dmired her, A-ccepted her . . . why even her name began with an A. Now she was going to be known as a dumb airhead at Mount Olympus Academy. It was Hero Day, the start of Hero Week at MOA and she'd have to work fast to convince Mr. Cyclops to raise her grade before anyone caught wind of her predicament. Aphrodite was positive that her best friends Persephone, Athena, and Artemis had to have done well in Hero-logy and if malicious Medusa heard about it, it would be all over the academy before a single snake on her head could even bat any of their ugly eyes. There was that "unfortunate incident" in which she started a war on earth, but perhaps Mr. Cyclops might be willing to overlook it. When Aphrodite brought up the possibility of raising her grade he simply told her to "Spend a little less time on being a diva and more time on your studies." What nerve! Looked like spending Hero Week on vacation with her friends was definitely out.

Athena was the one with the brains, but in a pinch Aphrodite could come up with a plan if she tried hard enough. She had to admit that trying to match up Paris with Helen was a flop, but her sixth diva sense told her that creating a Lonely Hearts Club might just be the ticket to raising her grades. It would be a club for mortals who wanted to "find love." After all, Aphrodite was the goddess of love and a matchmaker superior (or so she thought). The first thing to do was to make up excuses as to why she was staying at MOA during Hero Week and secondly she'd have to dispatch Pheme, the big mouth who "could spread news faster than a herald in a speeding chariot," to let the mortals know about her new club.

Are you already familiar with the Goddess Girls series? Well, this is the first one for me, and now I want to read them ALL. This series takes classic Greek myths and spins them into hilarious, modern, middle grade tales. It is a great concept that is well done.

Being the Greek Goddess of Love and Beauty makes Aphrodite the perfect student to earn extra credit with a matchmaking project. Through the Lonely Hearts Club, Aphrodite hopes to fix mortals up with their romantic matches while raising her grade in Hero-ology. It all goes hay-wire when she meets Iris, the Egyptian Goddess of Love and Beauty.

Aphrodite and Iris make for a comical pair with lots of similarities. Having to share the title of Goddess of Love and Beauty had to be a real shock to them. It was fun to see their relationship evolve over time.

The girls are set on finding a love match for Pyg, the most annoying and self-absorbed mortal boy ever. He's just so into me, Me, ME! Pyg is an artist based on Pygmalian, from mythology. When he falls in love with his statue, it is up to Aphrodite and Iris to find a creative solution. I loved the plan the girls came up with and how it all worked out. Such a funny book!

So cute! There's Aphrodite, Iris, and Pyg with his statue. This cover is fun and just prefect for this lighthearted book.
