Hi! Welcome to my giveaway in the Leap into Books giveaway hop,
co-hosted by the fabulous I Am A Reader Not A Writer and Jinky Is Reading!
Pandora the Curious is the first book in the Goddess Girls series to release in both paperback and hardcover in the US. 
It puts a modern spin on the Greek myth of Pandora's Box, in a story set at Mount Olympus Academy, where middle-school gods and goddesses hone their mythical skills.

Is Pandora about to open up a box of trouble?
One of the few mortals at Mount Olympus Academy, Pandora is famous for her mega-quizzical nature--not that she thinks there's anything wrong with curiosity of course!
Her curiosity kicks into high gear when a godboy named Epimetheus brings a mysterious box to school. Pandora can't help but take a peek inside this new box when it unexpectedly lands in her lap. What could be the harm in that, right? Little does she know that opening the box will open up far more trouble than she ever expected!
