Phoebe has recently learned that she is a descendent of the goddess Nike, but as amazing as that sounds, it is also a huge responsibility. She must master her newfound powers or risk the wrath of the gods—literally. Her new stepfather enrolls her in Dynamotheos
Development Camp, also known as Goddess Boot Camp, for the summer. While trying to avoid being thrown into Hades, Phoebe is also training to run the marathon at the Pythian Games and working to keep her romance with Griffin from imploding. 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. Flat secondary characters and predictable plot twists only minimally detract from the light and clever story line, which, although clearly begging comparison to Percy Jackson, makes for ideal beach reading.
