Teen Girls Rocking Reads: Goddess Girls: Athena the Brain


This is the first book in the Goddess Girls series by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams. The series is a twist on the Greek Gods and Goddesses where many of them go to a school on Mount Olympus called Mount Olympus Academy; also known as MOA. Book 1 starts down in a village in Greece in a house where Athena lives with her best friend, Pallas. As the book continues, Athena is taken away to Mount Olympus, starts school, and becomes friends with the three most popular goddesses at the academy: Aphrodite, Artemis, and Persephone. But in her first class, she is called down to the office by the principle: Zeus!! But once one of her inventions goes horribly wrong, Athena must find a way to save all the mortals down on Earth.I like this book because it’s showing Athena in a way most myths don’t: as a kid. In most myths, Athena springs from Zeus’s head, fully grown, in full greek battle armor. The authors have made the characters seem real, not just mythical.
If you like my review, read Goddess Girls book 1: Athena the Brain!!
