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

“…a clever take on Greek deities…” ~ Booklist

"Readers familiar with Greek myths should get a kick out of this plucky restaging.~Publisher's Weekly
“…an enchanting mythological world with middle-school woes compounded by life as a deity…” ~ School Library Journal

Aladdin paperbacks, ages 8 ~ 12.

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.
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.

NEW! 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 9, 2011) 
Artemis the Loyal  It’s time for the annual Olympic Games, and Artemis and her friends are not happy. It’s boys only.  Not fair! (Dec. 2011)
 Medusa the Mean  When Medusa discovers an ad for a necklace that promises immortality, this looks like her best shot at becoming popular and having her supercrush, Poseidon, finally notice her. Can this "meanie" get what she wants and also prove that there's more to her that meets the eye? (Apr. 2012)

Be sure to 'follow' because we'll be adding more giveaways to celebrate each new GG book and posting all the latest Goddess Girls news. We look forward to seeing you! xox
