Oh. My. Gods. by Tera Lynn Childs

Phoebe’s life is turned upside down when her mother returns from her Greek vacation with a fiancé in tow and claiming that they (including Phoebe) are moving to Greece. Not only does Phoebe have to leave behind her BFF’s, but she will also be starting a new school for her senior year, and she has to leave behind her cross-country coach who has been working so hard with her in order for her to get that running scholarship for college that she’s been dreaming about.

Not only will she be facing all these sudden, drastic changes in her life, but she now has a step-sister from hell (who's mean, conniving and hates her on sight), and her mother breaks the news about the new school that she will be attending. An elite school where descendants of the Greek gods study - making her the only nothos (or ordinary human) in the whole school.

Phoebe is such a cool girl. I liked that she was sassy, and held her ground and although she was powerless compared to all her new classmates she was not intimidated by their strength and power. I also loved the chemistry between her and her new friends Nicole and Troy, and, of course, the smokin' hot Griffin. I would have liked for there to have been more interaction between her and Griffin though. I did feel that their relationship was a bit rushed and formed with very little interaction.

As for the storyline, although I did find certain plot points predictable, I was nonetheless carried away into this magical world of the gods. I am a sucker for Greek Mythology and this was a fun way of getting my mythological fix.

I loved the zany characters, the school setting and, of course, the mythology. This was loads of fun and I can't wait to get my hands on the next installment, Goddess Boot Camp. Because yes, I really did not want it to end.
