I won this very cute book in a giveaway last month and finally got around to reading it. I'm glad I did! It's a modern spin on classic Greek myths told as though the Gods and Goddesses are in school! Artemis (the Goddess of Hunt) thinks she should be brave and all that...except that she doesn't think she's as brave as she should be. The book lets us get to know her as well as the other Goddessgirls and Godboys as well as the incredibly conceited (in the cutest way possible) Orion.
I don't know much about mythology (I know, I know...for shame!) so I felt as though I was being educated on the subject in a super fun way. I also envisioned the entire story as a cartoon. I wonder if that was what the author intended?!
The characters were super cute, the world the author created was completely accessible and there was all around clean fun content. I give this book 3.5 out of 4 stars and recommend it for young girls!
