Series: Oh. My. Gods., Book 1
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.
What I thoughtLet me just say, this was a fabulous audiobook. The story was really good and having it read by Jessica Almasy (I've now heard her read a few times and I love her!) just made my day. Jessica is able to bring the characters to life, each person having their own distinct voice. Oh. My. Gods. was a really fun, light story that kept me entertained thoroughly.
Okay, the story itself was truly fun. I liked the school. I've read a few other books with schools that separate themselves from the human/normal world and I have to say that this is my favorite among them. It doesn't hurt that this follows the lines of the Greek Gods, which anyone who knows me knows I love anything Greek Mythology. I loved reading Phoebe's interactions with her old friends, her new family and her new classmates. Phoebe is such a lovable character that had found a way into my heart.
I really recommend this story, but even more, if you have the chance try out the audio. It is well worth your time and money.
