Series scoop:
Follow the ins and outs of divine social life
where the most privileged godboys and goddessgirls 
in the Greek pantheon hone their mythical skills. 

“…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

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.
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.
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.6, 2011)
NEW! Medusa the Mean  Medusa wants to be more like her two sisters and the other kids at Mount Olympus Academy -- immortal. Is that too much to ask?  (Apr. 2012)
The Girl Games (Goddess Girls Super Special) The first-ever standalone superspecial in the Goddess Girls series—let the games begin! The Goddess Girls get their chance to host the Girl Games! Told in alternating points of view, this superspecial is packed with Olympic spirit! July 2012

Oh, this is awesome! I bought the first 7 of this series to read and donate to a classroom where I work. I read 2 of them over our spring break last week, so I've already been able to give those to a teacher. She was very excited!

I really did enjoy the 2 I've read. Interesting way of telling Greek Mythology. :)

Thank you for the giveaway and an opportunity to have some awesome swag for some students!

I love this series. I've told you before on the last contest you held a long time ago but I have a boy and he's 6 and loves this series. He's said that there should be some on the gods Artemis was his favorite but now might be a tie. Thanks so much for the chance to win book 8. Fingers crossed =)

Red Headed
Kristi's Book Nook

Winners, please email me a joanholub at aol dot com with your snailmails and I'll send out to you asap.
