Join the class at Mount Olympus Academy with Goddess
Girls, a new series that puts a modern spin on classic Greek myths!

Athena the Brain Finding out she’s a goddess and being sent to Mount Olympus brings Athena new friends, a weird dad, and the meanest girl in mythology—Medusa!
Persephone the Phony Hiding her feelings works fine for Persephone until she meets a guy she can be herself with—Hades, the bad-boy of the Underworld.
Aphrodite the Beauty Sure Aphrodite is beautiful, but it’s not always easy being the goddessgirl of love.
Artemis the Brave She may be the goddess of the hunt, but that doesn’t mean Artemis always feels brave.
*NEW! Athena the Wise Zeus says Heracles has to do twelve tasks or he'll get kicked out of MOA! Although she's not sure it's wise, Athena agrees to help out. (April 5, 2011)
Aphrodite the Diva Isis claims she's the goddess of love? Ha! But to keep the title all to herself, Aphrodite has to find the perfect match for Pygmalion, the most annoying boy ever. (August 2011)
Two more Goddess Girls books to come!

I just saw these books for the first time over on another blog and I think they're awesome. I have a little boy but he's all into Greek Mtyh and I would still read him these. I don't think they're for girls only. I'd love to win this book. I'd have to get the first few. Thanks =)

I so wish this series would have came out about 10 years ago. haha. These sound so cute to my now; I'm sure I would have loved them even more when I was in the right age bracket. ;)
