Number of Pages: 275
Bickering frenemies Meg and Shar are doing some serious damage at a midnight sample sale when they find themselves arguing over a pair of shoes—with fatal consequences. One innocent bystander later, the girls are suddenly at the mercy of Hades—the god of the underworld—himself. To make them atone for what they’ve done, Hades forces the teens to become special-assignment Sirens, luring to the Underworld any individual whose unholy contract is up.
But just because they have an otherworldly part-time job now doesn’t mean Meg and Shar can ignore life’s drudgeries (work) or pleasures (fashion!). Finding that delicate balance between their old and new responsibilities turns out to be harder than they expected, especially when an entire pantheon of Greek deities decides to get involved. Then there’s the matter of the fine print in their contracts . . .
Holy Smoke, that book was funny!!!
That book honestly had everything to make it a perfect summer read. It is entertaining, funny and hilarious (okay, the last two are similar, but still!) The story was simply entertaining. Two frenemies end up having to work together to save their soul (and appearance) from the evil (and quite, ummm, interesting) Hades, god of the underworld. Here is mixed mythology in a new modern way, with fashion and soul business. The ending made me laugh and smile. I enjoyed it from the first page to the last.
The characters were just too much. Too much fun, of course! Meg and Shar had that superficial side that slightly made fun of (even if Meg doesn’t see herself as superficial that much. I personally found her to be.) The god and goddesses? Hilarious. I loved Persephone. She was my favorite. Not how I would image a goddess, that’s for sure. Jeremy seemed like a nice girl, and I was happy to see him as the love interest.
I loved the books. It was simply fun to read, entertaining. I would have read a couple more like this one during my vacation!
I would definitly recommend this one as a summer read. If you’re looking for something deep, that’s not it. If you’re looking for a fun book to enjoy at the beach, that’s the one!4/5
