Goddess Boot Camp: 07/15/18
Goddess Boot Camp by Tera Lynn Childs is the sequel to Oh. My. Gods. Phoebe Castro has had rough first year at Dynamotheos and she's still struggling to keep her Nike inherited powers under control. As summer approaches, she's given an ultimatum, go to summer camp to learn how control her powers or risk being booted from the school.
There are just a few problems with summer camp. First of all, her step sister is her camp counselor. Second of all it's known as "Goddess Boot Camp". Third, she's the oldest kid there.
To put Phoebe's situation in perspective, it would like if in the future my high school aged daughter wanted to be an RA at the local Girl Scout Camp and was instead forced to attend camp as a Brownie. Phoebe is understandably mortified but she's also mature enough to know camp is her only option if she wants to continue going to school with the other demigods.
Goddess Boot Camp is an expansion of the rules of magic as seen through one teen's struggle to control hers. Each chapter begins with a Greek term and a definition that ties in with Phoebe's current lesson. I enjoyed the thought put into these rules and then seeing them play out.
