Goddess Boot Camp continues the story of Phoebe Castro. We first met Phoebe in Oh. My. Gods. where she got a new stepfamily, moved to Greece, started attending a high school full of descendants of Greek gods, met the perfect guy, and found out she was the great-granddaughter of Nike, the goddess of victory.
In Goddess Boot Camp, Phoebe is faced with the struggle of learning to control her considerable powers. In order to help with her control, Damian (Phoebe’s stepfather and headmaster of her school) enrolls her in the Dynamotheos Development Camp, better known as Goddess Boot Camp.
Phoebe is already dealing with boyfriend issues, preparing for the Pythian Games trials (think Olympics but bigger), and finding out what happened to her dad. Now she must also attend summer camp to learn to harness her powers before the gods decide to smote her. Oh, and did I mention that two of her camp counselors are Stella, her evil stepsister (and descendant of Hera), and Adara, her boyfriend’s ex?
Phoebe is just about to lose her ever-lovin’ mind. All of the pressure is really getting to her. Camp is cringe-worthy, her boyfriend is acting mysterious and secretive, and some weirdo is sending her cryptic messages her dad. The only thing that seems to save her sanity is running, but even that has the pressure of the Pythian Games attached to it. How can Phoebe possibly learn to control her powers with all of this emotional turmoil? And can she learn control before the gods decide she’s run out of time? Figure it out for yourself when you read Goddess Boot Camp by Tera Lynn Childs.
This is a fun, light read, and I encourage you to check it out if you liked Oh. My. Gods. Also, if you like the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series but want a little more romance with your Greek mythology, this series may be just what you’re looking for.
