Persephone the Phony (Goddess Girls #2)
AS PERSEPHONE'S MOTHER ENCOURAGES HER to do, she often "goes along to get along" instead of doing what she really wants. But when she meets Mount Olympus Academy bad-boy Hades, she finally feels she has found someone with whom she can be herself. He's the first person who actually listens to her, and she finds herself liking him, despite the fact that the other goddessgirl...more
Persephone is always agreeable, she wants to go along with everything just so she won't make anyone mad. She drags along to the mall when she would rather be home. She always agrees with her group of friends, even when she thinks differently. S ...more
I really like how these books incorporate Greek mythology into the ev ...more
It was so adorable! Though it was definitely for younger audiences. The plot was rather simplistic and, although it gave good thought to the question of idenitiy, it was over almost before it began.
I had problems with the fact that Hades was in school and Zeus was already grown up (Hades is the oldest!) but all in all the myhtology stuff was more acurate than I thought it would be.
I realize that ...more
She even pretends to like the same things as her best friends at the Mount Olympus Academy. She goes shopping with Aphrodite, pretends to like knitting for Athena, and says Artemis' dogs don't bother her at all, even though they are kind of smelly.
So, when she meets b ...more
¡Olvida las historias que leíste en libros, antologías, enciclopedias y los documentales que viste en History Channel!
¡Incluso olvida la versión de Disney!
Porque las historias de Diosas del Olimpo son otra cosa.
Nuestra historia inicia con Perséfone, una joven diosa de 12 años que, junto a sus amigas, Afrodita, Athenea y Artemisa, acude a la Academia Monte Olimpo, para dioses, semidoses, y demás criaturas mitológicas.
De un tiempo para acá, Perséfo ...more
The authors do a pretty good job of making it interesting and at the level that they are writing to - my 10 yo daughter LOVES these books and can't get her hands on the next one fast enough. She was questioning why Zeus is old & his brothers are both young, but it still flowed well for her. We have books 3 & 4 on hold at the library... well, as ...more
I was really disappointed in this book. I’ve read another series with Persephone as the main character, and I really liked her, but this Persephone is just a little too timid. And her friendship with Hades is a little weird.
Persephone the Phony is really short, so there’s not th ...more

Similar to what I said in my book reviev about Aphrodite the books are for people who like mythology and think it's interesting. If you want to learn actual fax this book is okay but it's the general assumption about her and how she would act if think. If you are able to read and like love stories read this it is very cute how things happen in this book.
His book make me want to learn more another myhology which I hink makes this book great. Wanting to learn m ...more
Persephone goes to Mount Olympus Academy, where godboys and goddessgirls go, and hangs out with her friends, Athena, Artemis, and Aphrodite. She would love to live on campus, but her mother, Demeter, insists that she stays home. Her mother often tells her to “go along to get along”, so Persephone is often doing what her friends want or says things she thinks they want to hear, such as going to ...more

My Review: The myth of Persephone and Hades is one of my favorites and so I was really looking forward to this book. While it definitely veered further away from the traditional telling than the previous book, I s ...more
This one has a peer pressure/bullying theme. Persephone goes along with everything and doesn't even feel like she has her own personality at times. Hades is misunderstood and shunned because he lives in the Underworld.
It was quite cute and explored the Hades/Persephone thing that happens in the myths--very, very watered down of course, but the original myths are hardly good stuff fo ...more
It wasn't as fun to read as the first book, but it's okay still.
