AS PERSEPHONE'S MOTHER ENCOURAGES HER to do,
she often "goes along to get along" instead of doing what she really
wants. But when she meets Mount Olympus Academy bad-boy Hades, she
finally feels she has found someone with whom she can be herself. He's
the first person who actually listens to her, and she finds
herself liking him, despite the fact that the other goddessgirls think
he's bad news. But if he makes her feel so special -- and she's so comfortable hanging around him
-- can he really be all that bad?
Authors Joan Holub and Suzanne
Williams put a modern spin on classic myths with the Goddess Girls
series. Follow the ins and outs of divine social life at Mount Olympus
Academy, where the most privileged godboys and goddessgirls in the Greek
pantheon hone their mythical skills.
Orpheus is a mortal rock god, and the girls at Mount Olympus Academy are wild about him! With his lyre and singing voice, Orpheus can charm pretty much anything—even things like stones and trees. But Hades and the other MOA boys aren’t charmed. In fact, they are less than thrilled that the girls are so gaga over this guy.
His fans are especially excited about his latest song about the girl he loved and lost, Eurydice. Orpheus was devastated when he lost Eurydice to the Underworld, so he asks Persephone to help get her back. Though it means breaking some very serious Underworld rules, Persephone pushes Hades to return Eurydice to the living world. But restoring Orpheus’s one true love might jeopardize Persephone’s own chances with her biggest crush...
In book 5, Principal Zeus asks Athena to help Heracles (aka Hercules in the Roman pantheon) complete his twelve labors. But when Heracles starts borrowing Athena's friends things without asking, will she be able to help him set things straight?
In Aphrodite the Beauty, Aphrodite, goddessgirl of love, must deal with jealousy after giving Athena a makeover. It doesn’t seem fair that the godboys pay more attention to her friend when Aphrodite is supposed to be destined for love! She also copes with a crush from an unlikely source—the nerdy Hephaestus (god of the smith)—and learns that love comes in many forms.
Eris is a goddess girl who has a penchant for causing trouble. So when her brother, Ares, is celebrating his thirteenth birthday, she can’t let the occasion go by without a little mischief. After all, she is the goddess of discord and strife! Aphrodite is determined to make sure Ares gets the attention he deserves, but can she handle what Eris has planned?
Mortal girl Pallas can’t wait to go show off her swordplay skills at Mount Olympus Academy. As a member of the Cheer Blades, she is hoping to impress her childhood friend, Athena—until she learns Athena has a new group of BFFs in the Goddess Girls. Pallas hopes she can win Athena’s attention at the upcoming Greek Festival battle reenactment competition—and help Pallas prove she is just as good as any boy her age! But Athena is having her own jealousy issues, thanks to her new baby sister. Can these old BFFs work together to help each other out?
Athena’s arrogance gets the best of her when her attempts to improve King Minos’s labyrinth have unexpected—and disastrous—results!
Athena, Persephone, Aphrodite, and Artemis are so annoyed at being left
out of the annual boys-only Olympic Games. Their solution? The Girl
Games! But as the Goddess Girls work to turn their dream into a reality,
they come up against plenty of chaos, competition, and even the cutest
kitten ever. Told in the four girls' alternating points of view, this
Super Special is packed with Olympic spirit!
Babe Ruth came from a poor Baltimore family and, as a kid, he was a handful. It was at a reform school that Babe discovered his talent for baseball, and by the age of nineteen, he was on his way to becoming a sports legend. Babe was often out of shape and even more often out on the town, but he had a big heart and an even bigger swing! Kids will learn all about the Home Run King in this rags-to- riches sports biography. With black-and-white illustrations throughout, a true sports legend is brought to life.
Amphitrite is a mergirl with a big crush on Poseidon—but will his quirks make her fall out of like?
Hero-ology. To raise her grade, she concocts a brilliant plan--an
extra-credit project for matchmaking mortals. This brings her
face-to-face with fierce competition--an Egyptian goddessgirl named
Isis. Now the race is on to see which of them can matchmake
Pygmalion--the most annoying boy ever! Will Aphrodite wind up making a
passing grade after all? Or will she end up proving she's a diva with
more beauty than brains?
These classic myths from the Greek pantheon are given a
modern twist that contemporary tweens can relate to, from dealing with
bullies like Medusa to a first crush on an unlikely boy. Goddess Girls
follows four goddesses-in-training - Athena, Persephone, Aphrodite, and
Artemis - as they navigate the ins and outs of divine social life at
Mount Olympus Academy, where the most priviledged gods and goddesses of
the Greek pantheon hone their mythical skills.
