oh. my. gods. by Tera Lynn Childs

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.

OH. MY. GODS. It was epic.

My Thoughts:

Characters - My favorite character is Troy because he always stuck with Nicole and Phoebe which means he is a true friend.

Plot - I believe that the plot was well laid outand it helped me understand what was going on.

Voice - There was some trouble with the voice, for me, such as understnding what the characters were trying to say.

Intensity - There was a lot of intensity in the book, a manin one and the romance parts. As you know I love romances. :D

Humor: Humor lost this time, but not by very much. Maybe like an eighth of an inch. There was a lot of humor in the romances too.

My Ratings:

Characters: 4.5/5
Plot: 4.5/5
Voice: 4/5
Intensity: 5/5
Humor: 3.5/5

Average: 3.7/5 -or- 18.5/25

  1. Hey Dallin! I've been debating on picking this one up for a while so I'm sorry you didn't totally love it! Humor in a book is important to me too, so that's unfortunate it lacked in that category. Thanks for the great review! :)
