Goddess Boot Camp by Tera Lynn Childs

WARNING! Possible Spoilers of Oh. My. Goods. 

In Goddess Boot Camp, Phoebe Castro is finally adapting to her new life in the tiny Greek Island that houses The Academy after surviving her first year there, getting into the track team, winning the heart of Griffin Blake and... discovering she's a descendant of the Goddess of Victory, Nike. 

Things are not all sugar and honey, though, not when her powers get out of control most often than not and when, as the summer starts, she gets send to Goddess Boot Camp, to help her get them under control, only that no one told her that her stepsister Stella and archenemy Adara were going to be the Camp's counselors, or that the other campers were all about 10 years old. 

There is more to Goddess Boot Camp, but I'm refraining for spoilers sake, but let me tell you that a lot of things happen to Phoebe and not all of them are so nice but, as she faces her fears and insecurities, she does start to become a goddess in her own right. 
I enjoyed the book but I also felt it was a little... unfinished, like it left me hanging on some points that I would have liked to hear more about - I don't think there is another book in the series - and that was a little let down. I also had a bit of a problem with Stella's behavior, 'cause at times it felt like it came out of the blue.

But, like I said, I liked the book, the characters are lovable and the story fun. 



  1. Great review!

    I really love the sound of this book, since I love Greek myths and lovable characters :)

  2. I love the sound of goddesses having boot camp, it seems exciting and fun. Love the new look of your blog. I was a little disconcerted by the name change initially, I thought I landed up at the wrong blog, but your writing style is just the same, thorough and engaging.
