If Phoebe Castro can maintain her good grades and continue to excel in cross-country, all of her dreams will come true. She had been planning to attend the University of California next year with her two best friends forever. All she needs to do is win a track scholarship, which will be easy for her since she can run at an extraordinary speed. In Tera Lynn Childs’ Oh. My. Gods., Phoebe learns the hard way that things don’t always work as planned.
When Phoebe’s mom decides to marry a man she has known for six days and move to Greece, her whole world is turned upside down. Not only is she going to be the new kid in a new school in a new country, she is also going to be the only “Nothos”. Nothos is what the students at The Academy call a person who is not a descendent of a Greek god. Did I mention that all of the students have magical powers? Not only does Phoebe have to deal with these unusual circumstances, she also has a new stepsister who is not exactly happy to meet her. She just wants to make it through this year so she can attend USC with her friends as planned. But after her experience in Greece, will Phoebe want the same things?
I found this book interesting because unlike a lot of books I’ve read, it wasn’t predictable. There were a lot of moments while reading this book that I was truly surprised. It was also quite a fast read.
