But when Heracles starts borrowing Athena's friends things without asking, will she be able to help him set things straight?
Well-researched and true to the original myths, each volume in the Goddess Girls series addresses contemporary issues, like friendships and relationships, from a classically accurate—and entertaining—perspective.
In Athena the Wise, Principal Zeus asks Athena to help Heracles (aka Hercules in the Roman pantheon) complete his twelve labors. But when Heracles starts borrowing Athena’s friends’ belongings without asking, will she be able to help him set things straight?
And in Aphrodite the Diva, an exchange student from Egypt, Isis, is encroaching on Aphrodite’s match-making turf. Will she also edge Aphrodite out of her group of friends?
The Goddess Girls by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams put a modern spin on classic Greek myths!
