Book Short Summary:

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 Greco-Roman pantheon hone their mythical skills. In each book, readers get to see how each goddess became who we know today. These much-beloved classic myths are given a modern twist and follow storylines familiar to modern tweens, from dealing with bullies (Athena and Medusa) to first crushes (Persephone and Hades). Athena the Brain follows Athena's first days at Mount Olympus Academy. She always knew she was smart and special, but she didn't realize that she was a goddess! When she's whisked away to MOA, she worries about fitting in and dealing with her dad (Zeus). Luckily, she meets the Goddess Girls and finds the best friends she's ever had. In Persephone the Phony, Persephone develops a crush on bad-boy Hades. Her mom (Ceres) doesn't approve, and neither do her friends. Persephone finds herself sneaking around to see him, but he ultimately tells her that she should tell them the truth and it's revealed that he isn't all that bad, just misunderstood! The GG support her and eventually her mom comes around too. Aphrodite the Beauty features Aphrodite, goddessgirl of love, as she deals with jealousy after giving Athena a makeover (godboys pay more attention to her!), and dealing with a crush from an unlikely place -- the nerdy Hephaestus (god of the smith).

When a godboy named Epimetheus brings a mysterious and fantastical box to school, Pandora’s curiosity is piqued. And when it unexpectedly lands in her lap—literally—she can’t help but take a look at what’s inside. What could be the harm in that? But little does she know that opening the box will open up more trouble than she thought….

Book Short Summary:

“Jean Shinoda Bolen provides ancient and modern ways to be our authentic, courageous, and passionate selves. Jean herself is an Artemis.”—Gloria Steinem Worshiped in Ancient Greece as a protectress of young girls, Artemis was the goddess of hunting, nature, and chastity—the original “wild woman.” In Artemis, Jungian analyst and bestselling author, Jean Shinoda Bolen, revives the goddess Artemis to reclaim the female passion and persistence to survive and succeed. But an indomitable spirit isn’t just reserved for the gods. In her book, Dr. Bolen revives the myth of Atalanta, an archetypal Artemis and mere mortal. To Atalanta, fate was no obstacle. Left to die because she was born a girl, she faces the Calydon Boar and outruns any man attempting to claim her as his wife. In Artemis, women are encouraged to discover their inner heroine—the activist who never gives up, who cannot be subdued. Whether women’s rights activists or Princess Merida from Brave, the Artemis personality is embodied in the modern women. Hailed by Isabel Allende, as a “beautiful, inspiring book,” Artemis is dedicated to all women and girls who discover her unconquerable spirit in themselves or others. Inside find: · Examples of Artemis in real-life and popular culture · Ancient and modern ways to be your authentic self · A source of strength, power, and integrity “Bolen connects Artemis to contemporary figures such as environmental activist Julia Butterfly Hill, author Cheryl Strayed, and journalist Lara Logan . . . Bolen also discusses other goddess archetypes, including the romance-oriented Aphrodite, contemplative Hestia, and Hecate, the wise crone. The exploration of Artemis and Atalanta as feminist icons is compelling.”—Publishers Weekly

With gorgeous illustrations by renowned artist Maira Kalman, this is a book that will inspire and uplift, a book to be cherished and shared.

Book Short Summary:

Classical Traditions in Modern Fantasy is the first collection of essays in English focusing on how fantasy draws deeply on ancient Greek and Roman mythology, philosophy, literature, history, art, and cult practice. Presenting fifteen all-new essays intended for both scholars and other readers of fantasy, this volume explores many of the most significant examples of the modern genre-including the works of H. P. Lovecraft, J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, C. S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia, J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones series, and more-in relation to important ancient texts such as Aeschylus' Oresteia, Aristotle's Poetics, Virgil's Aeneid, and Apuleius' The Golden Ass. These varied studies raise fascinating questions about genre, literary and artistic histories, and the suspension of disbelief required not only of readers of fantasy but also of students of antiquity. Ranging from harpies to hobbits, from Cyclopes to Cthulhu, and all manner of monster and myth in-between, this comparative study of Classics and fantasy reveals deep similarities between ancient and modern ways of imagining the world. Although antiquity and the present day differ in many ways, at its base, ancient literature resonates deeply with modern fantasy's image of worlds in flux and bodies in motion.

Book Short Summary:

One week after their eleventh birthday, the Fowl twins--scientist Myles, and Beckett, the force of nature--are left in the care of house security (NANNI) for a single night. In that time they befriend a troll who has clawed his way through the earth's crust to the surface. Unfortunately for the troll, he is being chased by a nefarious nobleman and an interrogating nun, who both need the magical creature for their own gain, as well as a fairy-in-training who has been assigned to protect him. The boys and their new troll best friend escape and go on the run. Along the way they get shot at, kidnapped, buried, arrested, threatened, killed (temporarily), and discover that the strongest bond in the world is not the one forged by covalent electrons in adjacent atoms, but the one that exists between a pair of twins.
