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.

The goddess Girls series has never let me down. Me and my friends love the series and we are always wondering whats coming next and thinking about what it might be about. I own all 7 of the books and I even like writing my own stories about them and adding other goddesses like, Amphitrite the goddess of the sea. She's my favorite goddess (Poseidon's wife in mythology)
Anyway, the authors are really creative to think of a great Idea I wish I made up. They have very creative spells (The goddesses use) I also like the spins on the myths that seemed to make the myth I've known as two minutes into a 271 paged book.

The book is about the goddess named Artemis who attends Mount Olympus Academy. The Annual Olympic Games are coming up and she wants to compete in them, but according to Zeus, the King of the Gods and also the principal at the Academy, only boys are allowed to compete in the games! Not fair!! Artemis is also better at sports than most of the godboys. So, Artemis decided to do something about it by drawing up a petition for a Girls-Only Olympics! The purpose of the petition was so Zeus would see that lots of students were in support of the Girls-Only Olympics. It also didn't hurt that Hera, a goddess that was dating Zeus, was on Artemis' side and wanted to help.

Other kids would enjoy this book because it is full of suspense and makes you want to keep turning the pages and read more. There is fun around every corner; you feel you are actually in the book with Artemis going through all the amazing stuff that she encountered!

Apollo, Artemis' twin brother, had entered the Python-O-Thon contest at the Annual Olympics Games. The Python-O-Thon was a new contest in the Olympics in which the competitors had to answer two tricky riddles posed by the biggest and trickiest serpent, the Parnassus Python. Artemis wanted to help her brother win the contest so she snuck into the gymnasium to find out what the Python's weakness was. When she sneezed, she awakened the Python which then hypnotized her and made her confess what her brother's weakness was instead! The next day, Apollo won the contest against the Python even though the Python knew what Apollo's weakness was. Apollo had prepared for the contest diligently and outdid the Python with his wits. His prize was a temple in his honor!

{My Thoughts} – Artemis and Apollo go through some rough spots within this new installment of the Goddess Girls Series.

Artemis wants to help her twin Apollo as much as possible. She feels that it is her place to stand up for him. However, he doesn’t like her doing everything for him because he thinks it makes him look weak in front of their classmates.

A lot goes on within the pages of this book. The main topic is the Olympic Games that are boy only. It does allow for competition from other schools though. All of the boys at MOA train for these games and they end up getting offended when the girls want to take part in them as well. However, Zues won’t allow that to happen there is still the fact that the boys don’t think that the girls deserve to be treated equally.

There are some new characters introduced, some new friendships made and some errors made. I do think though that it was nicely written. I always enjoy reading these books because they help to teach the reader a lesson. As the title suggests the lesson in this particular book is about loyalty. If you are wanting to know more you will need to read the book, it is worth the time.

These books are perfect for children interested in Greek Mythology. They are perfect for children that just want to read a nice story. They are very well written, well thought out and they conclude nicely. They don’t they any loose ends or questions that make you have to read the books in any particular order. I look forward to reading the next book in the series soon.

If you are looking for entertainment, my daughters loved them. If you are looking for accurate Greek mythology, my son was quite appalled. My eight-year-old is a reluctant reader, but she could not put these down and begged for the entire series.

My granddaughter is reading this series to me for the 30 minutes a day required by her school. Most of the time, she reads way longer than 30 minutes just because she is enjoying the stories so much. You can't ask more than that of a book for young children.

It's that time of year where the GodBoys get excited and Artemis gets jealous. The Olympic Games are going on, and girls aren't allowed. But when her brother Apollo sides with the boys to leave girls out, things get rough between them. And when Actaeon shoves her into a fountain, it's the last straw. She decides to get the girls and guys of MOA to sign her petition, but no boys do. Will her brother get the other boys to sign? And will he go through the most difficult challenge of all to win his own temple? Girls 8+ will root for Artemis as she fights for her rights. Girl Power!

I bought 9 of these books, as my 3rd grader got a few from the school library first and loved them - read them 2-3 times! Plus, they have high point level on AR, so even better! I definitely recommend the collection!
