Goddess Boot Camp

Goddess Boot Camp




      The book Goddess Boot Camp by Tera Lynn Childs was a hilarious fiction novel. The main character was named Phoebe.  A few months ago Phoebe moved halfway across the world to Greece with her mother who was getting married to a guy she barley new and leaving her two best friends in the world behind. Phoebe finds out that she's a descendant of the greek god Nike (pronounced like the shoe). Now Phoebe is struggling and trying to keep her powers under control.  Her mom and her stepdad realize that she's not getting control of her powers and so do the gods.  First, let me back up and explain what Phoebe is like. Phoebe is a runner and is training for the Pythian Games, but to be in the games you aren't allowed to use your powers and you have to have control over them.  As hard as Phoebe is trying to keep her powers under control it's not working and the gods aren't impressed.  Phoebe has to be sent to a camp called Goddess Boot Camp so she can control her powers and prove to the gods she will be able to control them for the Pythian Games.  When she arrives at the camp she finds out that she's the oldest girl their, everyone else is at least five years younger than her and that her arch enemy Adaraand her evil stepsister Stella are directing the camp.  The only thing that Phoebe has to look forward to are her afternoon runs with her awesome boyfriend  Griffin, but lately he has been acting strangely, and at the same time creepy notes are appearing at her doorstep written in a weird language. Phoebe's world seems to be falling apart slowly and slowly. Suddenly, things start to look brighter as she starts to control her powers. Will she be able to prove to the gods she can run in the race and graduate from Goddess Boot Camp before Adara mortally embarrasses her her? There are 264 pages in this book.


     What I liked about this book was that even though she's a part greek goddess all f the things in the book I can relate to ( except the whole powers thing, of course). I also liked it because it was really funny and since it was the second book in a series I thought it wasn't going to be as good as the first book , but it was!


     What I didn't like was that it almost seemed too similar to Percy Jackson and the Olympians with the whole part about  finding out she's a descendant of a god, but that's the only thing I didn't like about the book.


     I would recommend the book to people who like stories about greek myths and who really in joyed the Percy Jackson series because it had a lot about greek myths and was vey similar to Percy Jackson.
