All Medusa wants is to be more like her two sisters and the other kids in her class: immortal. As the only mortal at Mount Olympus Academy, she is sick and tired of being surrounded by beautiful, powerful, immortal classmates. It isn't easy making friends, especially when you have snakes for hair and one mean reputation!
When Medusa discovers an ad in her Teen Scrollizine for the IMMORTALIZER, a necklace that promises immortality, this looks like it could be her best shot at two things she covets most: to be as popular as the four Goddess Girls and to have her supercrush, Poseidon, finally notice her. But when the necklace brings about popularity in the totally wrong way, things go from bad to worse and Medusa fears that she'll never get the things she wanted so much.
Can this "meanie" turn it all around and prove that there's more to her that meets the eye?
