Book Review: Persephone the Phony (Goddess Girls #2) by Joan Holub

AS PERSEPHONE’S MOTHER ENCOURAGES HER to do, she often “goes along to get along” instead of doing what she really wants. But when she meets Mount Olympus Academy bad-boy Hades, she finally feels she has found someone with whom she can be herself. He’s the first person who actually listens to her, and she finds herself liking him, despite the fact that the other goddess girls think he’s bad news. But if he makes her feel so special — and so comfortable — can he really be all that bad? Authors Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams put a modern spin on classic myths with the Goddess Girls series. Follow the ins and outs of divine social life at Mount Olympus Academy, where the most privileged godboys and goddess girls in the Greek pantheon hone their mythical skills.

I enjoyed this second book in the Goddess Girls series as much as I did the first one.  In this book, Persephone the Phony, Persephone learns a great lesson in standing for and being herself.  When she meets bad boy Hades she learns to trust her instincts about him instead of listening to the gossip of other Goddesses.

Another light, fun read that is a great way to introduce young readers to mythology.  Perfect book for girls ages 8+.
