My Overall Rating:
4.5/5

Cover Art:
I love this cover so much better than the hardback's cover. It just so darn adorable don't you think? It really suits the story, and not just because Phoebe is a runner. It's a really cute story.

Age Recommendation:
There really aren't any red flags in this book for an age rating. I think a 12 or 13 year old reader would be fine.

Summary:
When Phoebe’s mom returns from Greece with a new husband and plans to move to an island in the Aegean Sea, Phoebe’s well-plotted senior year becomes ancient history. Now, instead of enjoying a triumphant track season and planning for college with her best friends, Phoebe is trying to keep her head above water at the ├╝berexclusive Academy.

If it isn’t hard enough being the new kid in school, Phoebe’s classmates are all descendants of the Greek gods! When you’re running against teammates with superpowers, dealing with a stepsister from Hades, and nursing a crush on a boy who is quite literally a god, the drama takes on mythic proportions!

My Review:
Ok, so we all know that senior year is tough. Looking into what school you'll be attending, doing your best to get the grades, and saving up for when you're finally on your own. This is nothing compared to Phoebe's senior year.

How would you feel if your mom randomly told you that she was getting married? And to a guy she just met. I don't know about you, but I would be majorly concerned of my mother's mental health. And on top of that, you're moving halfway around the world!? Ok, major issues there.

This is Phoebe's senior surprise. To find out her mother is getting married and that all of her hard works and dreams are going down the drain. Plans to stay with friends throughout college, and getting that full scholarship to the school of her dreams is no longer a reality.

Oh. My. Gods. was a very clever and very cute read. And not to mention, very fast. It was impossible for me to put this book down. Tera Lynn Childs did an excelent job of character development and plot development that you really get to know all of the characters and really feel like you are the one in Phoebe's shoes (and not because they are really cute Nike's).
I completely felt all of the agnst the Phoebe was dealing with, from schoolwork to issue with making new friends and enemies.

This book is an excelent read and I would recommend it to anyone because I really think that everyone can find somehting to relate to. We've all gone to or will go to high school and we've all dealt with the same sort of problems. This book just capture the whole teen angst thing really well. From being a child with one parent to having a step-parent and then moving to a knew place and having to make new friends.

I will definitely be reading this one again!

The sequel Goddess Boot Camp is on sale now and will be on sale in June in paperback.
