Book Description

From Booklist 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.
