Phoebe Castro’s life plan is going great. She just finished cross country camp, is about to start her senior year with her two best friends, and-if she can keep her grades up-is set to have a full running scholarship to USC, the college of her dreams. At least, that’s what her plan was. Her mom has a different plan. While on vacation, she fell in love and got engaged…to a man who lives on a small remote island in Greece. Phoebe and her mother will be moving there in two weeks, where Phoebe will attend The Academy, a very exclusive private school.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, it turns out the Greek Gods are very real. Everyone on the island is a descendent of the Greek Gods. Everyone possesses extraordinary powers, including Phoebe’s new wicked stepsister, Stella.

Thank god (or, more accurately, “gods”) she still has her running to keep her sane. However, after a run in at the cross country team tryouts with gorgeous classmate, Griffin Blake, (using powers to zap her shoelaces together is not cool!) Phoebe now needs to medal at the first meet in order to stay on the team. In a school full of descendents who don’t seem to like her, Phoebe’s not sure how she’s going to survive high school life as a nothos…a normal person.

Combining sports, mythology and romance, this was a fun read, appealing to girls who like the Percy Jackson series.
