Oh.My.Gods – Tera Lynn Childs

oh-my-gods

A modern girl’s comedic odyssey in a school filled with the descendants of Greek gods.

When Phoebe’s mom returns from Greece with a new husband and moves them to an island in the Aegean, Phoebe’s plans for her senior year and track season are ancient history. Now she must attend the uberexclusive Academy, where admission depends on pedigree – namely, ancestry from Zeus, Hera, and other Greek gods. That’s right, they’re real, not myth, and their teen descendants are like the classical heroes—supersmart and superbeautiful with a few superpowers. And now they’re on her track team! Armed only with her Nikes and the will to win, Phoebe races to find her place among the gods.

I loved this book. I love anything with Greek Mythology and this particular book fed into my fantasy that the gods might be real and walking among us (or at least their descendents :P). I found Phoebe to be a very good character, and her use of running as a release almost made me want to strap on my own running shoes! Plus – this cover cracked me up. Not that that should matter, but we all know it does. Try this if you like mythology or want a light romance. – Jessica, Teen Librarian
