Aphrodite the Diva

Goddess Girls Series, Book 6

These classic myths from the Greek pantheon are given a modern twist that contemporary tweens can relate to, from dealing with bullies like Medusa to a first crush on an unlikely boy. Goddess Girls follows four goddesses-in-training -- Athena, Persephone, Aphrodite, and Artemis -- as they navigate the ins and outs of divine social life at Mount Olympus Academy, where the most priviledged gods and goddesses of the Greek pantheon hone their mythical skills. In book 6, an exchange student from Egypt, Isis, is encroaching on Aphrodite's match-making turf. Will she also edge Aphrodite out of her group of friends?

    D for Diva

    I'M FAILING HERO-OLOGY? APHRODITE STOOD in the middle of the Mount Olympus Academy gymnasium and stared at her grade in shock. That can't be! she thought. She closed her sparkling blue eyes and opened them again, hoping she hadn't seen right. Unfortunately the D was still there. Okay, so a D wasn't exactly failing. But it was close.

    She glanced around and saw mean-girl Medusa eyeing her in a nosy way from across the gym. Uh-oh. Quickly, she stuffed the reportscroll into the pocket of her new chiton. She'd work on somehow getting her grade changed later. But for now she'd better do what she'd come here for and get out fast before any-one asked about her grades. She couldn't let anyone find out about this. Plenty of students at MOA thought that anyone who was beautiful was automatically an airhead. She didn't want to reinforce the idea. Besides, it wasn't true!

    Absently, she fluffed her long, naturally wavy golden hair. Sure, everyone said she was the prettiest goddessgirl at the Academy. But one bad grade didn't mean she was D for dumb. Right?

    With her eyes glued to the giant game board which now hogged the center of the gym, Aphrodite hurried toward it. The board was normally set up in Mr. Cyclops's Hero-ology classroom. It had been moved here for a party to celebrate Hero Day. Today's party kicked off the start of Hero Week, a five-day school break.

    "Excuse me. Sorry. Pardon me," she said, weaving through the throng of students between her and the game. Every godboy she saw was instantly dazzled by her smile and moved aside for her to pass. Whew! The gym was packed. Hero-ology was a required class, so every student at MOA had gathered here. She'd arrived late because she'd zipped down to the Immortal Marketplace bright and early for gift wrap and lost track of time. A window display had caught her eye and she'd wound up trying on one chiton after another. Could have happened to anyone, right?

    Eventually, she reached the game board, which covered the top of a table about the size of two Ping-Pong tables set side by side. Its three-dimensional world map showed colorful countries dotted with castles, villages, roads, and hills. The countries were surrounded by oceans filled with small sea monsters, mermaids, and scaly dragons that really moved!

    Dozens of three-inch-tall hero statues stood atop the board here and there as movable game pieces. Most already had a small gift resting beside them. It was tradition that each student reward his or her hero on this special day. (Hence the need for her trip to the mall that morning for gift wrap!)

    Unfortunately, the statue of Paris, her valiant mortal hero, had been set on the far side of the game board on Mount Ida in Asia. Aphrodite glanced back toward the gym door, wishing she could escape now. But she couldn't leave without giving Paris the gift she'd brought for him.

    Clutching her pink shopping bag, she began to pick her way around the edge of the huge game. Out of the corner of her eye, she saw one of her best friends, Athena. They waved to each other, wiggling their fingers. Athena's reportscroll was clasped to her chest and her face glowed with pride. Since she was the biggest brain in school, it was a no-brainer to guess that she'd made an A.

    Hearing a whoop, Aphrodite looked over to see Apollo high-fiving with Artemis, another of her best friends. Obviously, the brother-sister twins were happy with their grades! Even Dionysus, who was a major goof-off, was proudly showing around his C. He'd done better than she had? No fair! Acting in school dramas and playing in Apollo's band were the only...
