“…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! 
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? 
New!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! 

Goddess Girls titles to come: Pandora the Curious (Dec. 4, 2012); Pheme the Gossip (Apr. 3, 2013), Persephone the Daring (Aug. 7, 2013)

Thank you for stopping by. Good luck in the giveaways.
We hope you enjoy The Girl Games!

These books sound like such fun! As a fifth grade teacher- I am so curious about them. I love mythology- so I will have to give these a try. I enjoyed your review on Heidi's Rainy Day Ramblings. :)
