Review: Persephone the Phony

Persephone likes to make her friends and her mother happy, but it's often at the expense of her own happiness. She isn't interested in going shopping, or knitting, or having a makeover. She just doesn't know how to tell her friends without them becoming upset. She does meet one godboy who understands, Hades.

Unfortunately, Hades has a bad rap. Neither her mother nor her friends approve of their new friendship. Suddenly, Persephone can't stand it anymore. She meets Hades in secret, in a gloomy cemetery. Will she stand up for her new friend so they can hang out in public or will she go back to making everyone but her happy?

My Thoughts: This is the second of the Goddess Girl series - from another girl's perspective. I like how the goddesses/gods are portrayed as tweens. The first two books portray one goddess finding her true self while dealing with everyday issues plus magic.
The Cover: Super cute!

Adorable cover! Persephone is one of my faves. I love how the Greek myths are getting a much-deserved update lately.

Thanks for sharing.

I really loved how Persephone learned to be true to herself in this book. It was a really great message.
