It's time for the annual Olympic Games, and the four goddessgirls are not happy! It's boys only--and the girls at MOA are not pleased. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Led by Artemis, Athena, Persphone and Aphrodite, the ladies of Mount Olympus hatch a plan to get Zeus to open up the games to everyone. Will they succeed--or end up watching from the sidelines again?andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;These classic myths from the Greek pantheon are given a modern twist that contemporary tweens can relate to, from dealing with bullies like Medusa to a first crush on an unlikely boy. Goddess Girls follows four goddesses-in-training and#8211; Athena, Persephone, Aphrodite, and Artemis and#8211; as they navigate the ins and outs of divine social life at Mount Olympus Academy, where the most priviledged gods and goddesses of the Greek pantheon hone their mythical skills.
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?
