Goddess Girls

I like the Goddess Girls series because it shows how being goddesses and gods would make school different, and it is a fun twist on Greek Myths.

Greek mythology fun

This book, Athena the Wise, is the 5th book in the Goddess Girls series. I think this book is the most exciting book among this series! It shows how a mortal (human) can work together with a god and their cleverness is beyond imagination! In this mythology book, Athena, the goddess of wisdom, helps Heracles complete his twelve labors as they overcome each one with logical humor. Heracles has a secret labor he won’t tell Athena. When Athena has a test and she can’t go with Heracles to help him with his 10th labor, he goes off on his own and disappears! Will Athena ever get to find out his secret labor? And will Heracles ever return to MOA (Mount Olympus Academy)? Read the book to discover what happens next! This book teaches kids Greek mythology in a wonderfully awesome way! It packs education into this adventurous book. Although this title says ‘Girls’ it isn’t necessarily only for girls. If you love mythology/ adventure, this book is the right book for you!

Interesting

It helps teach anybody about Greek mythology, and helps bring a more playful term to Paganism... Anyway, Athena is wise when it comes to relationships and friendships, relations to family members, revenge, humiliation, and other important issues while bring some fun fiction to the table. I really like how it personifies, modernizes Greek gods and goddesses, and it helps kids relate. Can't find anything bad.

I love this series!

I thought that this book was interesting in a fun, learning way. It tells the back story of many Greek legends in a way that is not too scary, but instead positive. I would highly recommend this book and series.

A great book for girls

This book is good for girls 9 and up. Athena is a good role model in that she is smart and has good judgement. It doesn't mater if you have read the rest of the series. It is fun even if you've never read any greek myths, but you get more out of it if you have read greek myths. This book is based on real greek myths but with fun changes that make them more interesting so it's good if you are learning a little bit of greek myths. If you like it when characters have magical powers this is a good book for you. A nice thing about it is you feel like the characters are real people and you care about them!

A very fun book involving Greek mythology!

This book is not the best example of literature, but is a very fun story. Book 5 in the goddess girls series, this story deals with heavier concepts than the earlier books. Athena considers revenge a lot when a mortal insults her and her friends say that she should have punished that mortal. Instead Athena competes with that girl to prove who is the better weaver. Also, Athena deals with love and relationships when she is asked to help Heracles, and ends up "liking" him. Athena is a smart girl who is a good role model, as she knows she can forgive the many insults and injuries (some to her pride) that she receives, instead of just having to thoughtlessly punish everyone who gives her the tiniest insult. This book is a good introduction to some Greek myths, even if they aren't always perfectly accurate.
