In book 6, after a teeny misunderstanding in class, Aphrodite is failing Hero-ology. To raise her grade, she concocts a brilliant plan--an extra-credit project for matchmaking mortals. This brings her face-to-face with fierce competition--an Egyptian goddessgirl named Isis. Now the race is on to see which of them can matchmake Pygmalion--the most annoying boy ever! Will Aphrodite wind up making a passing grade after all? Or will she end up proving she's a diva with more beauty than brains?

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.

    Aphrodite has always been, without a doubt, the Greek goddess of love and beauty. And she looks the part too; with her long, flowing blond hair, crystal-clear blue eyes, and impeccable fashion style, she's bombarded with compliments this way and that. But when Aphrodite visits Egypt, she comes face-to-face with her stiffest competition yet (though that's not saying much since she's never had competition before in the first place): Isis, the Egyptian goddess of love and beauty. Exotic, regal, and coveted, Isis clearly gives Aphrodite a run for her money. The two goddessgirls are desperate to face off once and for all to see who can claim the true spot of "the goddess of love and beauty." So, while strolling through the mortal realm, they find a worthy trial: Pygmalion, a bitter middle-aged man who refuses to even look at the girls in the agora. But there's more than what meets the eye. As Isis and Aphrodite race to find Pygmalion's perfect girl, Aphrodite finds out the missing puzzle piece of Pyg's story, but can she still pull through or will she sacrifice her spot as "the love goddess" for Pygmalion's true love of his life? Exciting, sweet, and fast-paced, this has long since been one of my favorite books of all time!
