{Synopsis} – Athena has always been above average. She has never quite fit in at Triton Junior High, but who would've guessed that Athena is actually a goddess? Principal Zeus's daughter, to be exact.

When she's summoned to Mount Olympus Academy, Athena thinks she might actually fit in for the first time in her life. But in some ways, school on Mount Olympus is not that different from down on Earth, and Athena is going to have to deal with the baddest mean girl in history: Medusa!

{My thoughts} – I was one of those children growing up that enjoyed watching shows like Xena and Hercules. They were even more fun to watch when they did crossovers. It doesn’t surprise me that I have really enjoyed reading this book. It is based on Greek Mythology and it is incredibly well written. I do believe that any child that wants to learn or read more about Greek Mythology could easily fall in love with this book. I know I have and I already know quite a bit about it.

Athena is a twelve year-old girl that’s lived on Earth all of her life. She has a great family and a best friend named Pallas that is a mortal. It is Pallas family that she lives with and has her entire life. One day she gets a letter summoning her to Mount Olympus Academy and it is signed by Zues. Zues it turns out is her father and he is ready for her to attend school at the school where he is the principal.

She gets there and she begins her new school year at a new school with Godboys and Goddess Girls. She has to overcome the issues of being the new girl and many other things just to try and fit in. I know how difficult it can be to be the new person at school, and with her being the new person at a Godboy and Goddess Girl school, while the expectations for her had dramatically increased.

If you want to learn more about Athena, her new school, her Dad Zues, and a handful of her classmates you should read this book. It is worth the read and then some, it is a fast paced book, that isn’t too terribly long. I am sure my daughter whom is eleven could easily read it in about four hours. This book would make a great gift for any little girl that like Greek Mythology or has shown an interest in it. I also think some little boys may possibly enjoy it as well, I will need to test run it with my nine year-old son.

All and all, I enjoyed the book a lot and I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
