review 1: {My Thoughts} – Persephone is one of Athena’s closest friends. However, she isn’t as un-masked around Athena and the other girls as she is around a Godboy named Hades. Persephone seems to like that she can be her own dreary, emo like self when she is around Hades, and she doesn’t have that option around her other friends. The reason for that is because her mother is always telling her to go along with others and what they want so that she has an easier means of getting along with them. That doesn’t always work out for Persephone though because she ends up being really sad and unhappy afterwards in most cases.I enjoyed this book a lot, it helps to show children that they have a right to their own individuality. That they shouldn’t let others just push them aroun... mored, because they are afraid to speak their minds about how it is that they feel. Persephone is a smart girl and she has many interest, but none of them are the same as her friends and because her mom tells her to go along to get along they really don’t know who she is and it isn’t fair to her or them, however, they don’t know it isn’t fair.I really enjoyed reading about her coming out of her shell more and letting others she her personality and get to know her for her. And well, not the girl she had pretended to be because her mother had told her to. This is a wonderful book and I think it is ideal for children that are shy and haven’t quite figured out how to show others what they want or how they feel.I look forward to reading more in this series in the near future.
review 2: Persephone is always going along with what her friends want to do ('go along to get along' as her mum would say) but when she meets Hades, the dark brooding godboy from the underworld. She realises that there's more to her and more to Hades then people previously thought. In this book we see a LOT more of Persephone than in the last one! We also meet Hades and see more of Zeus and Ares. I prefer this one to the last one and my favourite part was either the part where Hades and Persephone were playing the spitting the pip game or all the parts with Zeus - he is so funny. less
