Athena The Brain is an adorable light take on Greek mythology. Athena has grown up as an orphan on Earth, living with her friend's family. She's always been different - smarter, better. Now she knows why - she's the daughter of Zeus! She is summoned to attend Mount Olympus Academy with all the other goddess girls, godboys, and a few errant mortals.

My Review
 I really loved the book, it was really good. I loved how the authors wrote the book, it was funny and cute. ♥ I learned you can never have too many true friends.

What I thought about the characters:

I really liked how Joan and Suzanne explained the characters. They explained the beautiful Athena very well. I also liked how they explained and portrayed evil & bratty Medusa, she has snakes as her hair! WOW! And I had fun drawing Medusa. I really could see all the characters in my head while I was reading.

What characters I liked:
My favorite character is Athena. she's really pretty and I love how she's really smart. I felt really sorry for Athena at times... like when she fell and tripped skinning her knee on her second day of school. She's not smart when she goes to her new school. She's not really used to different subjects.

You guys should really read Athena the Brain, its really good!

Thank you Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams for sending me this signed book and signed bookmark!
