Are you looking for a good series to start your daughter, niece or friend's girl on ?

Persephone the Phony (Goddess Girls)

Review: Persephone the Phony – Goddess Girls Series Book #2 – Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams – 2010

Ever wondered what life would have been like for the Gods and Goddesses when they were children? Ever wondered how they received their reputations in history, whether it had anything to do with their upbringings? In Book #2 of the Goddess Girls Series we are presented with Persephone – she has a knack for making nature and restoring it to its beauty. Feeling like she is walked over and never gets to be the “real her”, she escapes to a quiet place – the cemetery. It is here that she meets a gorgeous hunky godboy Hades. He is from the opposite side of the fence from her; they are like from two different worlds. How is it though, that they can get on so well together and Persephone can be herself around him. We soon read as the friendship between Hades and Persephone starts to Blossom and the way her friends and other’s start interfering. Why can’t they just be happy for Persephone? As the novel gets on we see that as a young boy that Hades wasn’t all that bad and that maybe he is a good match for Persephone – well for now anyway as they are only still in School. With the school dance nearing, will Persephone have a date with Hades or will he be just like her friends say he is and let her down and live up to his reputation? . Find out in this awesome Children’s series that girls aged 9-12+ will enjoy and I can’t wait to read more adventures of the Goddess Girls- Hoping for some tales of Aphrodite, Artemis and Pandora.
