Review

On top of Mount Olympus, the authors intertwine an enchanting mythological world with middle-school woes compounded by life as a deity or blessed mortal. The books should be popular with fans of girly, light fantasy. -- School Library Journal

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!

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

Started reading this series with my daughter.

Though I tend to steer away from tween romance, Persephone is indeed the most down-to-earth goddessgirl.
Sarita
It's really fun and I think other people should read this book. :)

Less than a month into school at MOA, the illustrious Mount Olympus Academy that is, most of the godboys and goddessgirls had formed friendships, except of course those like Hades who couldn't even buy one. Guys from the Underworld just didn't seem to be on anyone's "wanna be my pal" list. Aphrodite, Artemis, Athena, and Persephone were all going to put on their "winged sandals" and head to the Immortal Marketplace, otherwise known as the mall. They all were psyched and ready to go. Well, at least three of them were. PersePHONY, who "lacked the guts to say how she really felt about even the smallest things," would probably rather walk Artemis's gnarly dogs than go there, but she was going. Can you spell P-H-O-N-Y?

One thing led to another and before you know it an out-of-control ball of yarn, go figure, landed Persephone in a cemetery, the last place she'd expect to meet a hot godboy . . . named Hades. Just as they were getting acquainted, her mother Demeter, a "chariot mom" supreme, swooped down yelling, "Stay away from my daughter, godboy!" Persephone was almost thirteen-years-old and was no child, but even her friends were against her on this one. Even Athena the Brain agreed that Hades was "trouble with a capital T!" He wasn't. He just wasn't. Persephone tried again to see him by shape-shifting into a dove, only to be ratted out by her busybody friends. There was only one thing to do . . . she had to figure out when Charon's boat was leaving. Little did she know, she was in for one HOT adventure she wouldn't forget any time soon!

The reader will find a full dollop of Greek mythology 101 in these pages and will be dying to find out more about Hades and the rest of the godboys and goddessgirls at Mount Olympus Academy.

I enjoyed this second book in the Goddess Girls series as much as I did the first one. In this book, Persephone the Phony, Persephone learns a great lesson in standing for and being herself. When she meets bad boy Hades she learns to trust her instincts about him instead of listening to the gossip of other Goddesses.

Another light, fun read that is a great way to introduce young readers to mythology. Perfect book for girls ages 8+.

I love how the friends disagree on how the bad boy and a good girl like her falls for him.

Persephone the Phony is my favourite of the first two books, as I liked Persephone slightly more than Athena, and this one even had a little sprinkling of romance, with none other than bad boy Hades! Well, he's not bad really, everyone just thinks he is. Instead, he's a sweet, thoughtful guy with an interest in Persephone, and a kick-ass black stallion that he rides around on. Life's great if you're a God of the Underworld, eh?

I really like how these books incorporate Greek mythology into the everyday trials and tribulations of growing up. It's such a cool way to learn about history, and I wish there had been something like this when I had to snooze my way through boring lessons in primary school. Although each story seems quite short to me, I think they're just the right length for tweens, and would be a great pick for reluctant readers.

I'm looking forward to reading the other 2 books in the series later in the year, and then I think I'll move on to Percy Jackson. These Greek types are cool!
