Product Description

Athena has always been above average. She’s never quite fit in at Triton Junior High. But who would’ve guessed that she is actually a goddess? Principal Zeus’s daughter, to be exact! When Athena is summoned to Mount Olympus Academy, she thinks she might fit in for the first time in her life. But in some ways, school among the gods isn’t so different from life back down on Earth. It even has the baddest mean girl in history – Medusa! Follow the ins and outs of divine social life at Mount Olympus Academy, where the privileged gods and goddesses of the Greek pantheon hone their mythical skills. Enjoy a rich new take on classical myths in the sumptuous world of the Goddess Girls!

    Goddess Girls is a wonderful take on the story of the Greek gods and goddesses! The story kind of reminds me of Harry Potter – a girl finds out she is a Goddess and is whisked away to a magical boarding school.

    I love how all of the well known Greek gods and goddesses go to the same school (Mount Olympus Academy) – it’s fascinating to think about how Medusa, Poseidon and Aphrodite might have acted when they were younger.

    The characters are well developed and likable (except Medusa and her sisters, of course!). My favourite characters except Athena, the main character, are Pallas – Athena’s mortal friend – and Aphrodite. When Athena left to attend Mount Olympus Academy, I felt sorry for Pallas as she had lived with Athena for her whole life and they must have been like sisters. I liked Aphrodite because she looked after Athena when she started her new school.

    The best thing about this book is that the authors have mixed old myths with modern times. For example, Athena and her friends try out for the Mount Olympus cheer leading squad, and the goddesses love fashion and music just like most of the teen majority these days.

    I recommend this book to children aged 8+ – maybe to children who just want a good story, or maybe who want to know a little more about Greek mythology but in a child-friendly way. 4/5 – a point deducted as it’s not exactly my age range but it’s still very enjoyable! :)

    I would love to read this book, but I’m a fast reader, for example, I read Diary of a Wimpy Kid : Cabin Fever,all 216 pages, in a day! Is it a very short book?
