Phoebe recently discovered she’s a descendent of Nike (the goddess, not the shoe), and now she’s finding out that supernatural powers come with a crazy learning curve. Her new stepfather, headmaster of the Academy for descendants of Greek gods, has enrolled her in Dynamotheos Development Camp—aka Goddess Boot Camp—with a bunch of ten-year-olds for the summer. Embarrassing as that is, hopefully it’ll help her get control of her powers in time to pass the test of the gods, continue training hard enough to qualify for the Pythian Games (the only sporting event bigger than the Olympics), and enjoy her godly boyfriend, Griffin, all while avoiding getting smoted for accidental misuse of powers!
Goddess Boot Camp is another fast-paced myth-inspired heroine’s quest that’s sure to bring out the goddess in anyone.

This sequel to Oh. My. Gods. (2008) is as fun and fast-paced as the first installment. Even though Phoebe is dealing with drama of mythic proportions, her insecurity in her relationships and her conflicts with friends and enemies alike make her a realistic and empathetic heroine. … the light and clever story line, which, although clearly begging comparison to Percy Jackson, makes for ideal beach reading.
Fans of the first book will recognize the same chick-lit elements here: snappy dialogue, picture-perfect mean girls, and misunderstandings and reconciliations with a dreamy boyfriend. A mystery about Phoebe’s dad’s fate adds to the lighthearted, magic-packed fun that provides enough background for series newbies.
The plot has many twists and turns and moves along nicely, and there are beautiful descriptions of the Greek islands. … those who enjoyed the first book will want to read this one.
