I like the cover on this for the colours…I don’t think the glitter works well on the cover though, as I couldn’t tell it was there until I noticed a different texture on part of the cover! This is the first book in the series aimed at pre-teens.

Athena has never fit into her school, so when she’s summoned by Zeus (who also happens to be her father!), she hopes to fit in to Mount Olympus Academy.  This is a really bubbly, girl power type book, which I found very quick to read as Athena finds her place in her new home, finds out more about her parents.  I loved the spin on Medusa and the only thing I wasn’t sure about was her having a fly for a mother!! 

Book synopsis:

Athena has always been above average. She's never quite fit in at Triton Junior High, but who would've guessed that Athena is actually a goddess? Principal Zeus's daughter, to be exact. When she's summoned to Mount Olympus Academy, Athena thinks she might actually fit in for the first time in her life. But in some ways, school on Mount Olympus is not that different from down on Earth, and Athena is going to have to deal with the baddest mean girl in history -- Medusa! 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 goddessgirls in the Greek pantheon hone their mythical skills.
