In Persephone the Phony, Persephone develops a crush on bad-boy Hades. Her mom (Ceres) and friends don t approve, and Persephone finds herself sneaking around to see him. Hades convinces her to tell the truth, and it s revealed that he isn t all that bad, just misunderstood!"
Gr 3-6-Mythology meets middle-school angst as preteen "goddess girls" navigate the ups and downs of social life at Mount Olympus Academy. New student Athena can't wait to rise to fresh challenges but must first deal with the ultimate mean-girl, Medusa; all-too-agreeable Persephone finds herself "going along to get along" until she meets school bad boy Hades. Contemporary concerns are cleverly interwoven into the Greek pantheon in these frothy, funny fantasies. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

On top of Mount Olympus, the authors intertwine an enchanting mythological world with middle-school woes compounded by life as a deity or blessed mortal. The books should be popular with fans of girly, light fantasy. -- School Library Journal
