Reviews

Gr 3-6-Mythology meets middle-school angst as preteen "goddess girls" navigate the ups and downs of social life at Mount Olympus Academy. New student Athena can't wait to rise to fresh challenges but must first deal with the ultimate mean-girl, Medusa; all-too-agreeable Persephone finds herself "going along to get along" until she meets school bad boy Hades. Contemporary concerns are cleverly interwoven into the Greek pantheon in these frothy, funny fantasies. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

A clever take on Greek deities. -- Booklist
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
