“…a clever take on Greek deities…” ~ Booklist
"Readers familiar with Greek myths should get a kick out of this plucky restaging.~Publisher's Weekly
 “…an enchanting mythological world with middle-school woes compounded by life as a deity…” ~ School Library Journal
Series scoop:
Join the class at Mount Olympus Academy with Goddess
Girls, a new series that puts a modern spin on classic Greek myths!

Aladdin paperbacks, ages 8 ~ 12.
Athena the Brain Finding out she’s a goddess and being sent to Mount Olympus brings Athena new friends, a weird dad, and the meanest girl in mythology—Medusa!
Persephone the Phony Hiding her feelings works fine for Persephone until she meets a guy she can be herself with—Hades, the bad-boy of the Underworld.
Aphrodite the Beauty Sure Aphrodite is beautiful, but it’s not always easy being the goddessgirl of love.
Artemis the Brave She may be the goddess of the hunt, but that doesn’t mean Artemis always feels brave.
*NEW! Athena the Wise Zeus says Heracles has to do twelve tasks or he'll get kicked out of MOA! Although she's not sure it's wise, Athena agrees to help out. (April 5, 2011) Aphrodite the Diva Isis claims she's the goddess of love? Ha! But to keep the title all to herself, Aphrodite has to find the perfect match for Pygmalion, the most annoying boy ever. (August 2011) 

Two more Goddess Girls books to come!

Be sure to 'follow' because we'll be adding more giveaways to celebrate each new GG book and posting all the latest Goddess Girls news. We look forward to seeing you! xox

Ye gods! I finally figured out how to make "comments" work for me on your blog! It had to do with a setting in my browser.
