"Medusa wants to be more like her two sisters and the other kids at Mount Olympus Academy -- immortal. Is that too much to ask? As one of the few mortals at MOA, it's hard not to get jealous when you're surrounded by beautiful, powerful goddessgirl and godboy classmates. And it isn't easy making friends either, especially when you have snakes for hair and one mean reputation!"--Amazon.… (més)

{My Thoughts} – Medusa is a rather difficult individual to get along with at Mount Olympus Academy. It is no surprise that most individual’s like to steer clear of her because of her hair. However, her hair isn’t the main reason individual’s steer clear of her. It is also her attitude in general towards others and other things. She seems to approach things and individual’s with the I’m not happy you shouldn’t be either type of attitude.

Medusa discovers a necklace with a special charm that in a book she is reading. The charm claims to be able to turn the person who wears the necklace immortal. Medusa wants nothing more then to be immortal like her twin sisters and not have to be dependent on everyone for everything when it comes to living the Goddess Girl’s lifestyle. However, once she gets the necklace she learns it is anything but magical.

Medusa while trying to deal with the let down of her necklace being useless also has to prepare for Zeus Wedding. She also learns that her Super Crush isn’t who she had thought he was all these years that she’d been crushing on him and learns that you can find friends in the most unexpected ways.

I think that any child that enjoys Greek Mythology can enjoy these books. Each book can be read independently or as a series. They read well either way. I greatly enjoy reading these books with my daughter and I am sure any other mother daughter duo will feel the same about them. I also like that they have lessons in moral character within the pages. They help children to learn and distinguish between good and bad behaviors. ( )

If you haven't yet discovered The Goddess Girls Series, allow me to introduce you. This wonderful set of books is all about mixing classic mythology with modern day girls and guys. Trust me, it's a ton of fun to read! Although these books are slated for Middle Graders, I see no reason why older aged readers wouldn't like them as well. After all, I'm almost 30, and I love them still!

In this particular installment, we get to see a lot further into Medusa's past and why she earned the title "Queen of Mean". The thing is, Medusa isn't really all that bad! Sadly she's just been told her whole life that she isn't special, and that she shouldn't try. Now here is why I love Medusa as a character. Despite everything else, this girl has dreams! She works hard for them and I see her as a way to teach young readers that if you work hard for something, chances are you can achieve it.

What's really sweet about Medusa the Mean is that you get to see her blossom. Making new friends, realizing that sometimes you have to trust others, and even finally seeing how her "supercrush" really is on the inside. The story line in this book is so fun! It's quick moving, there are silly jokes, and the way that the characters interact is perfect. I loved the fact that in this book Medusa is no longer just the "mean girl" character. She really comes into her own, and it's fabulous!

Long story short, this is a great series and Medusa the Mean is no exception to that rule! If you have a young reader at home, put this book into their hands. These work great as standalone novels, or you can go back to beginning and let them experience the whole series. Either way, these are sure to be a hit in your home!

At Mount Olympus Academy, Medusa struggles to get along with the other students and secretly longs to be immortal like the other students. I'd already read Persephone the Phony from the same series and found it a surprisingly nuanced examination of the challenges of both staying true to yourself and getting along with others, so I wanted to see if the other books are as good. This one focuses on Medusa, who was an antagonist in the other books, and digs into her issues with trust and her resentment on having to depend on others because she's mortal (which in this context is effectively a disability.) It's not necessary to be familiar with Greek myths to understand the story, but there are a lot of bonuses and hidden jokes if you are. The characters are very well sketched out and easy to empathize with and root for; it made me eager to read the other books in the series. ( )

I really enjoy reading this book because it show how Medusa feels. I don't think everyone should be scare of her just because her hair is different. ( )
