Persephone’s mom encourages her to “go along to get along” instead of doing what she really wants, and Persephone follows her advice even when it makes her feel like a fake. But when she meets Mount Olympus Academy troublemaker Hades, she finally feels she has found someone she can be herself with. He’s the first person who actually listens to her, and she finds herself liking him, despite the fact that the other goddess girls think he’s bad news. But if he makes her feel so special—and she’s so comfortable hanging around him—can he really be all that bad?
Aphrodite, goddess girl of love, must deal with jealousy after giving Athena a makeover. It doesn’t seem fair that the god boys pay more attention to her friend when Aphrodite is supposed to be destined for love! She also copes with a crush from an unlikely source—the nerdy Hephaestus (god of the smith)—and learns that love comes in many forms.
New readers and old fans alike will enjoy these full-color graphic novel adaptations of the long-running Goddess Girls series.
Eleven-year-old Clotho is always linked with her two big sisters. Together, they are all the Three Fates, with abilities to predict events in mortals’ lives. There are a few rules that the all-powerful Zeus has decreed for them, including a strict no-mingling with mortals policy.
After Clotho discovers letterscrolls from unhappy mortals who don’t love their fates, she wishes there was a way to try and earn their respect. During a secret trip to the Immortal Marketplace—where there is always a chance to run into mortals, too!—Clotho finds herself in over her head as she gets swept up in a competition to celebrate the opening a new store. A competition where her identity as a fate could be revealed at any moment!
If that weren’t enough, Clotho must face up to an old mistake she made several years ago that broke one of Zeus’s other rules: Never interrupt the telling of a fate. It could mess up a mortal’s whole life!
Can Clotho manage to untangle the mess she has made while finding a way to bring the mortals and the Fates together?
