The Greek pantheon provides a ready-made cast of colorful characters for the Goddess Girls series, which explores universal trials and tribulations of early adolescence. In this latest volume, Persephone, known in mythology as the wife of Hades and goddess of the Underworld, is looking to shake up her dependable good-girl image at Mount Olympus Academy. She decides to try to charm her crush, Orpheus, with daring stunts, but in the end, she learns the value of dependability and the power of abandoning her comfort zone. A modern spin on basic mythology is the impetus for these clearly imagined characters, who contend with age-appropriate conflicts and problems. Grades 4-7. --Erin Anderson --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Also, parents of younger kids should be aware, the goddesses play truth or dare, talk about crushes and in general focus a lot of attention on boys.
I have read most of the series up to this one, so I know all of the characters. But I think that they made it too much about Orpheus and his little girlfriend, rather than Persephone and Hades. Another disappointment, was that I read the description of the book before buying, and it was nothing like that.
It was alright, but too jumpy, a little boring, and not very intriguing.
