Phoebe’s life is about the get ungodly…

All Phoebe Castro has to do is keep her grades up and have another stellar cross-country season and her dream of attending USC with her friends on a track scholarship is a reality. So it’s a complete shock when her mom announces that she’s marrying a near-stranger and moving them to Greece.

Before Phoebe knows it, she’s stuck on a secret island in the Aegean and attending the super-exclusive Academy, where her new stepfather is the headmaster and the kids are anything but your average students - they’re descendents of the Greek gods, superpowers included. If regular high school wasn’t bad enough, this is mortal misery.

Phoebe’s only chance of reclaiming her old life lies in securing that scholarship. But managing that may be an ungodly challenge, considering she’s got a sabotaging stepsister from Hades and a gorgeous guy - what a god! - in her way…

Oh.My.Gods. is such a cute, fun read. I really enjoyed it.

This book made me want to go to Greece so badly! The clear blue skies, white sandy beaches and gorgeous sunshine are a little bit different to England’s weather, me thinks! It sounds like such a fantastic place to be.

I loved learning about the Greek gods, goddesses and mythology in Oh.My.Gods. I didn’t really know very much beyond the basics and the very famous gods and goddesses, but know I want to know much more. The way that the descendents reflected their god or goddess was very cool and it became a strange, but fitting, version of high school cliques.

Despite all of the myths and legends, there was still plenty of typical teen drama in Oh.My.Gods. There were mums remarrying, bratty step-sisters, bitchy popular girls and the guy. The supernatural elements were well balanced and fit nicely into the, kind of, real world.

I really enjoyed Oh.My.Gods. and I can’t wait to get started on the sequel, Goddess Boot Camp.
