Book Review - Athena the Brain by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams (Goddess Girls 1)

Meet the girls of Mount Olympus Academy.

Brainy Athena has never fit in at Triton School, but who would've guessed that's because she's actually a goddess?  Zeus's daughter, to be exact.

So when she's summoned to Mount Olympus Academy, Athena thinks that she might fit in for the first time in her life.  But school on Mount Olympus is not that different from down on earth.  Will Athena be able to deal with Medusa, the baddest mean girl in history.

My Review

This was such a fun book to read.  Even though this book is aimed at Middle Grade readers, I thoroughly enjoyed it and especially loved the banter between the characters, especially when Athena gets to her new school at Mount Olympus. I have to admit that I wanted to join this school and attend some of the lessons such as spell-ology, beauty-ology, hero-ology and especially revenge-ology..... 

Athena is a normal girl in a world where the Gods are held up high on a pedestal and when she discovers that she is, in fact, a goddess, she cannot wait to travel to her new life even though that does mean she will have to leave her best friend behind.

This is such a fun book that I would recommend to not only to middle grade readers but to all.

8 out of 10
