Goddess bootcamp definitely wasn't as good as the first book in this series, Oh. My. Gods. However, I did enjoy learning more about Phoebe, Stella, Griffin, and even Adara.

My favorite part in this book was definitely the scenes with Phoebe and Stella. We see how both of them actually care for one another. And we find out how Stella has her own crush she's pining for!

Daemon and Phoebe's mom were there, always supportive of Phoebe's uncontrollable powers.

I found the whole theme, controlling your

Phoebe may be a descendant of Nike, but she has a lot to learn when it comes to mastering her powers. It’s not exactly a good thing to turn your living room into a beach and your parents’ bedroom into a winter wonderland. All the silly situations that Phoebe got herself into were hilarious.

Speaking of powers, I loved learning more about all the powers that the classmates had. Autoportation lets you to “move oneself to a different location through nonphysical means.” Imagine the possibiliti

Was surprised about the test. Once again I felt the great need to exercise while reading this book, something that's very difficult for any author to accomplish. Any book that makes me want to get in shape and learn Greek so I can meet handsome Greek demi-gods is pretty special.

Phoebe, who recently discovered she's a descendant of Nike (the goddess, not the shoe), is finding that supernatural powers come with a crazy learning curve. Her stepfather, headmaster of the Academy for descendants of the Greek gods, has enrolled her at Dynamotheos Development Camp—aka Goddess Boot Camp—with a bunch of ten-year-olds for the summer. Embarrassing as that is, hopefully it'll help her gain control over her powers in time to pass the test of the gods, continue training hard enough t ...more

I really enjoyed reading this book about a goddess book camp. The main character, phoebe, a teenage who recently discovers she's a descendant of Nike. When she finds her crazy power, she also finds out she has some major responsibilities. I can relate to her because she's just a teenager going through a rough patch in her life that will end in great success. The book was light and enjoyable while also throwing in action packed mystery. "Feel the victory inside you" (Childs 230) was an important ...more

So I decided to read this book because I read the first one, and I couldn't read the first one and not read the second one. I found that this book was more for a pre-teen because I found this kind of childish, but I did like it because of the mystical, magical, power, part of it. It's basically just the second part to the first book, "Oh.My.Gods" and it's about how Phoebe learns how to control her powers since she's the descendant of Nike, and I like it because it shows her thinking process from ...more

Now that Phoebe knows that the goddess Nike is her great-grandmother, she has to figure out how to cope and control her super powers as being so close in ancestry to a goddess makes her stronger than most of the classmates that mocked her in the last series for being merely human. The joke's on them as hijinks ensue whenever Phoebe loses control of her powers (often) but then Phoebe is forced to attend Goddess Boot Camp with kids nearly half her age and counselors who are fellow classmates. Why ...more

Phoebe made the team and got the man of her dreams, but things are far from perfect. Since Nike's her great-grandmother, her powers are very strong and a little (okay, a lot) out of control. The gods aren't happy about this and decide to test her. The problem is that she doesn't know when or where this test will be. Damien enrolls her in Goddess Boot Camp where she's stuck with Stella, Adara, and a herd of 10-year-olds all day. Along with t

This book was not for me... I read it only because I'd read the first one and even that wasn't something I usually like. Sure, people who like easy reads with a bit of magic will find it a good read but it didn't do it for me. It is not to say that the book was "OK" that I rated it two. The author is good and it has magic and 'Greek' content!!! Yet it was a bit of a tween book. There was a lot of hype on the final test ,that in the end was a tad bit disappointing. And as far as I know there isn' ...more

After Phoebe finds out that she is a descendant of Nike (the goddess not the shoe) she has to learn to control her crazy powers. Right before her Mom and her new step dad leave for their honeymoon she finds out she is going to have a test on her powers. While in the midst of controlling her out of control powers she has to train for Pyathian Games. So she is stuck in a house with her dreadful step sister who might just be the trick to getting her powers under control. While she has all her frien ...more
A Leisure Moment

Along with trying to discover the mystery of her father’s death, Phoebe also had to learn to trust Griffin. Even though they had been dating for nine months, when he started hanging out with his ex-girlfriend again, she started to doubt him...For fans of mythology and Childs’s books, this is a perfect addition to your collection.

Apr 16, 2011 Holly rated it it was amazing
A great sequel to Oh. My. Gods.! The author infuses such great humor into this series that I laughed out loud again and again. The novel also provides great storylines about family, relationships, and being true to yourself and following your dreams. Sad to see Phoebe's story end but I thoroughly enjoyed the ride! Can't wait to read Tera Lynn Childs' Forgive My Fins now!
Wish there were more of these cute books.

I am kinda sad there isn't a third book in this series. This series is cute. Really cute. Granted if you are looking for the Odyssey this isn't it, but if you are looking for a light & fluffy read this is the books for you.

After the first installment in this series, I was relatively pleased even though it was a fluffy read. This time I was hoping Phoebe would be tested a little more and stretched a little too thin. After all, I really enjoyed Phoebe as a character. Unfortunately, my hopes were not realized and really dampened my view on this book.

This time around we get an even stronger Phoebe because she's now knows she's a descendant of a Goddess. She needs to control her powers and this novel focuses primarily

I took a while to get around to writing a review to this book but here I am now!
When I read Oh. My. Gods. I was happy but not jumping up and down with joy. I thoroughly enjoyed that book too but this 1 was far better. Surprising, since this is the sequel.
Phoebe is without a doubt one of my favourite heroines ever. She made up for missing out on a great sale[since I gave up shopping for her]. This book had an added suspense angle because she has a blackmailer. And believe it or not, this Sherlock

Where do I begin? After reading the first book, I hesitated to read this one. But, I had already bought it, so I figured why not? I can give you many reasons why not. These two books made me question why I'm even a fan of Tera Lynn Childs. I LOVE Sweet Venom and Sweet Shadows, but both Oh. My. Gods. and Goddess Boot Camp make me want to throw the books against the wall.
I do enjoy the style of her writing for the most part, but when one of the character has some dialogue, she stops to describe th

Now that Phoebe has discovered who she is—a descendant of Nike—she has accepted living in Greece and staying on the small island surrounded by the descendants of the gods. There’s one problem, however: she can’t control her powers. She’s supposed to be enjoying the summer before her (second) senior year, but instead, Damian, her stepfather, sends her to Goddess Boot Camp. On top of that, she’s in the midst of training for a running competition that used to be bigger than the Olympics. Phoebe’s d ...more

Goddess Boot Camp is het tweede en tevens laatste deel van deze serie. Ik vond het hartstikke leuk om weer over Phoebe en haar belevenissen te lezen. Haar onbewuste gebruik van magie leidde tot hilarische situaties en het idee alleen al dat ze twee weken met die kleine meiden moest doorbrengen maakte me hardop aan het lachen. Geweldig!

De rest van het verhaal was helaas minder interessant. Toen begon Phoebe namelijk na te denken, iets wat ze als

Eccomi di nuovo a parlarvi di Phoebe.
Come vi avevo anticipato nella recensione di Oh.My.Gods non avrei lasciato passare molto tempo prima di leggere il secondo volume della serie, data la scorrevolezza, piacevolezza e semplicità dei romanzi di Tera Lynn Childs.
Il secondo volume si è dimostrato all’altezza del primo e la storia è filata liscia fino all’ultima pagina. Ribadisco che per chi si affaccia al mondo della lettura in lingua la Childs e le sue storie sono estremamente adatte.

Phoebe is back and has just discovered she’s a descendant of Nike. Sadly she has been having trouble controlling her powers from Nike. The Gods are not happy with his and decide to put Phoebe to the test—she has only a few weeks to prepare… or else!? On top of that, her hot, supposedly loyal boyfriend, Griffin, is keeping secrets from her. Plus, she has been receiving emails from a blocked sender that may know something more about Phoebe’s dad’s death. If you’ve read Oh. My. Gods., you will not ...more

Loved, loved, LOVED this book. I have this thing for mythology and romance and Goddess Boot Camp had both!

I honestly loved everything about this novel. The characters, the plot, the ending and even the writing style.

Phoebe has trouble controlling her power so her stepfather, Damien, decides to enroll her in Goddess Boot Camp that will allow her to control her powers better and it's also a preparation for the test that the gods and goddesses are going to give her. She must pass or face the conseq

I finished reading Goddess Boot Camp. "Adara is my friend. Until you helped me work through things with Nicole last year, she was my oldest friend. That's never going to change. Neither is the fact that you're my girlfriend." Griffen says. That quote is means that you can have different kinds of friends. This quote made me want to read more.

So what's a girl goddess to do when everything she wants is just a race away? Phoebe is back and has a new challenge of Olympic proportions to master. The question isn't whether she'll win the race, the question--can she win it and control her powers so she doesn't get smote? Between learning to control herself, preparing for a race that's older then the Olympics and holding onto her love life, Phoebe has a lot on her plate and Childs manages to retain that witty narrative tone in this sequel to ...more

What fun was this book? I was a little skeptical because of the title. But, I went from Oh. My. Gods directly to this one and that is why there is one review. I have to go back to book 1 and put in a 5. It was a thoroughly enjoyable read. Yes, there was the typical teenage angst which totally rang true, but, there was also a deeper story there that deals with family and relationships and Tera Lynn Childs did a wonderful job capturing it from a teenage point-of-view.
