Gooddess Girls 2: Persephone the Phony by Joan Holub & Suzanne Williams.

As PERSEPHONE‘s mom encourages her to do, she often “goes along to get along” instead of doing what she really wants. But when she meets Mount Olympus Academy bad-boy Hades, she finally feels she has found someone with whom she can be herself. 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?

Artemis is on the hunt, but she doesn´t feel brave! Artemis´s friends and classmates see her as the most courageous goddessgirl at school.

But what´s really bothering her now is that funny feeling she has whenever she looks at Orion. She´s never had a crush before. Will she find the courage to talk to Orion, to make him see her as more than a pal, and to ace Beast-ology class?
