Valorie
Jordan has a romantic heart and a deep love of everything Audrey Hepburn. One day, Jordan discovers that her grandmother is keeper of a gorgeous bracelet and a secret: that one of Audrey’s roles, the main in Tessa’s Treasure, was based on reality, and this reality featured none other than a great aunt Jordan never knew. What appears to be a lovely vintage bracelet, reminiscent of all the romantic happenings of Audrey’s cinematic life, soon turns out to be very un-fortuitous for Jordan. The brace ...more

You’ve heard the old saying “Be careful what you wish for. You may get it.” I’d like to add that you may get something entirely unexpected, also, something you wish you hadn’t wished for, especially when goddesses are involved.

In Author Kim Baccellia’s latest novel, NO MORE GODDESSESS, fantasy for MG/Tween readers, Jordan Lake dreams of Ethan Taylor, basketball star at McKnight High, inviting her to the Valentine’s Day dance, which is highly doubtful since she’s not a member of the “popular” cro

Jordan is in a terrible situation. She put on a beautiful bracelet that was in her grandmother's attic. It is just like the one that her favorite actress, Audrey Hepburn, wore in one of her movies. She couldn't resist and in a moment of leniency, her grandmother let her put it on, then forgot to pick it up later.

The bracelet is wreaking havoc at her school and in her home. It turns out that it belongs to the Egyptian goddess, Hathor. The Goddess is having too much fun influencing the lives of yo

Love the books that tease me with what could happen and then everything changes. What i love about this book is the mystery and the unknown, very exiting book. Giving the book an overall 3 out 5 stars. The book has a little bit of everything in the story, and the adventure that carries us through they are very good.
The whole plot is build-ed around Jordan that loved old movies, that's why loved to go all the time around the grandma's house. Everything starts when Jordan goes at her grandmother

This was an awesome story that once I started reading , I could not put it down.

It moved along at a good pace and had a storyline and characters that kept me entertained for an entire evening, and I could not believe it when I was finished.

This book is definitely worth checking out.

An awesome read.

This story started out kind of slow but it's really cute and fun. I enjoyed the mythology part of it and I would let my daughter read it.

Shelves: magick, mythology
Egyptology + the style, class and legend of Audrey Hepburn + high school + Valentine’s Day dance woes + teenage crushes = a recipe for what could be a potentially very cute YA novel with much adorableness.

When high school freshman and Audrey Hepburn fanatic, Jordan stumbles a an old Egyptian bracelet in her grandmother’s attic, she’s shocked to find it’s identical to the one her Hollywood idol wore in the film, Tessa’s Treasure – Jordan’s all-time favorite Hepburn movie. Borrowing it, she wears

No More Goddesses is a young adult novel in which the Egyptian goddess of love, Hathor starts causing mischief in Jordan's high school through the use of am old bracelet that Jordan found at her grams house. No More Goddesses is a fun younger feeling young adult book. The content is very clean, and appropriate for all ages. I found the book to be a fun high school adventure where a group of three friends find themselves racing against a clock trying to solve the mystery of this bracelet and mayb ...more

This book is uninteresting and the story does not capture me. I did not even find it particularly well written. I have read mid-grade/children’s books before that had me in the first chapter, and I am a fan of the paranormal /fantasy genre. I am not sure why I cannot get into this one. I gave it a fair chance settling at 45% of the book. I really wanted to like this book, but I cannot give a stellar review. On a side note, as someone who made big mistakes with my own first edition, an editor tha ...more
