Aphrodite the Beauty

Aphrodite the Beauty
by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams
Goddess Girls, book three

Aphrodite delights in helping mortals in love, but she's pretty annoyed at the constant attention she gets from the godboys at Mount Olympus Academy. When she decides to give Athena a makeover, she's a bit unprepared for the result. She didn't count on all the interest Athena's new look would get. And she certainly never thought she'd find herself jealous of one of her best friends! Will she be able to put the jealousy behind her?
(description taken from back jacket copy)

This is such a good, easy to read tween series. This book, the third in the series, features Aphrodite. After giving Athena a makeover, she has to deal with some major feelings of jealousy. Then, when Ares starts to ignore her and Hephaestus begins to pay her a little too much attention, Aphrodite learns to see the beauty within. She and the other goddessgirls also learn to ignore gossip, as it generally never leads to anything good. Though I still think that Persephone's story has been my favorite so far, I really enjoy these books and I look forward to reading Artemis the Brave.
