Book Review - Oh My Gods by Tera Lynn Childs

Synopsis: 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 uber exclusive 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 super beautiful 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.

Review: I liked it but didn't "love" it! I felt horrible about poor Phoebe having to move away from the only home she has ever known especially in high school and not just to another state but clear across the world into Greece with a new family and a horrid step-sister, start a new school where it appears everybody hates you because your not "special".

I high fived her effort and supported her all the way especially when she decided to take the highroad on an issue that comes up and breaks her heart and she decides not to retaliate. That showed alot of growth and self control especially for a teenager.
