GODDESS GIRLS:PERSEPHONE THE PHONY by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams

Goddess Girls: Persephone the Phony puts a unique twist on an ancient story. The second in a series by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams, Persephone the Phony tells the story of a young maiden smitten with a socially unacceptable godboy.

Persephone attends Mount Olympus academy, MOA for short, along with the other young deities of Ancient Greece.  Some of her closest friends include Aphrodite, Athena and Artemis, but even they don’t know how she really feels.  Now Persephone’s met a new friend, one who understands and listens to her—Hades, young lord of the Underworld.  Unfortunately, she’s the only one who trusts him.  Her mother forbids her from seeing him, and Persephone’s friends aren’t much better.  Can she convince them to trust Hades?  Or will they refuse to accept him?

I was intrigued by this book because it puts such a unique twist on the story.  I’ve read many fiction Greek myth books, several involving Persephone, but none with a storyline and setting like this.  The Goddess Girl books are short and easy to read, and will probably be best suited for younger readers or those challenged by more advanced works.
