Preview — Persephone the Phony by Joan Holub
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
Es cierto que es un libro más bien infantil, enfocado a enseñar a los más peques de la casa el mundo de los mitos antiguos, los Dioses del Olimpo y todo lo que gira en torno a ello. Pero eso no me ha impedido disfrutar del libro. Porque he de decir que ¡me ha encantado!

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
Hades was misjudged and misunderstood. Rumors about him painted him as this terrible bad boy and everyone wanted Persephone to st ...more
Persephone adalah seorang dewi, anak dari Demeter. Demeter sendiri adalah dewi pertanian dan kesuburan. Demeter mengendalikan kesuburan tanah, musim, dan panen. Oleh karena itu Persephone pun memiliki keahlian untuk menumbuhkan setiap tanaman yang disentuhnya.
Di sekolah para dewi, Persephone berteman dekat dengan Athena, Aphrodite, dan Artemis. Selama bertem ...more
