    A fun graphic novel set in the Mt. Olympos, where the Greek gods are reimagined as high school teens and school administrators! Karen is sent to live with her dad, Zed, and attend a new school while her mom pursues a dream art project. Her weird new environment becomes even stranger wh...

    I love that this book offers reluctant readers a path to enjoy Greek mythology through a fun but relatable story about a girl who is forced to go live with her father after her mother receives a too-good-to-pass-up job offer, only to discover that her father is Zeus and her classmates ...

    When Karen's mother gets a great new job opportunity, Karen is shipped off to live with the father she barely knows. On Mount Olympus. Karen's new school is very weird, and her fellow classmates are...off. And someone is turning students to stone! How is this even possible. T...

    Oh I loved this! Premise: Karen has to go live with her dad for a while, who she rarely sees. He lives on Mt. Olympus. She gets there and seems blind to the fact that clearly her dad is Zeus and the people she meets are THE Apollo and Aphrodite, etc. Zeus's portrayal is adorable-h...

    This story about an USAmerican middle schooler who moves in with her dad on Mount Olympus while her mom pursues a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity is fun and cute. It's also pretty standard. As a fast-paced middle grade graphic novel that riffs on Greek mythology, it works...

    Karen is just your everyday girl who moves to Greece to live with her odd, mysterious father who *whoops* is actually the Greek God Zeus. Now Karen is going to high school with gods and goddesses, and it is up to her to figure out what is going on when her classmates start to turn to s...

    Olympic Friendship There are lots of middle grade books out there that are based on some sort of Olympian angle. This one is mostly a school daze friendship tale that takes a light and lively approach. Our heroine, Karen, has to stay with her Dad because of her Mom's new job...

    Graphic Novel I received an electronic ARC from Etch/HMH Books for Young Readers through Edelweiss+. Interesting premise to see the Greek gods and goddesses return as high school students. Karen has to live with her dad while her mom takes a different job. She's okay with this b...

    This was a super cute graphic novel that was about Greek mythology with a twist. A thirteen-year-old girl moves to live with her dad at Mt. Olympus. Then she finds out all the gods and goddesses have been reborn as teenagers, and she is a demigoddess. It was fun to see the gods and god...

    This is a really sweet middle-grade graphic novel involving a girl who moves in with her dad, Zed (actually head honcho of the pantheon, Zeus), and slowly realizes that her new school is filled with gods, goddesses, and other mythological creatures. I found the depictions of the dif...

    Lovely illustrations and a story perfectly suited for a younger audience just beginning their life-long obsession with Greek mythology. There are some really brilliant moments of humour and pathos found in these pages too. Definitely recommended! ...

    Thank you Netgalley for the arc. 4 stars. Super cute would definitely recommend to my students. Easy and fun way to introduce Greek Mythology with a modern and new twist with it being a graphic novel. ...

    An oblivious girl switches from living with her mother in New Jersey to living with her father in Greece. It takes her one third of the book to notice that her new school, Mount Olympus Junior High, is populated with Greek gods and mythological creatures. Stiff and awkward in concep...

    Oh My Gods! is an interesting way of graphic novel readers to start fiddling with greek mythology and want to read something more relatable like teens in high school. Almost every god and goddess have around Karen's age, daughter of 'Zed', her divorced father who lives ...

    Graphic novel format, mythology and school drama combine with a result that will likely be a hit with my 5th grade library patrons. Karen is sent to live with her dad temporarily as her mom works at a new job, but has no idea that he is actually Zeus and her new classmates are reborn, ...

    Bursting forth from the collective foreheads of Stephanie Cooke, Insha Fitzpatrick, and Juliana Moon, OH MY GODS! (Vol. I) is a delightful middle-grade graphic novel romp through the pantheon of Greek deities and the halls of junior high. When New Jersey's own Karen moves to Mt. O...

    Oh My Gods! is SUCH a fun concept for a middle grade graphic novel, and it's so well executed by the authors and illustrator! I remember being totally overwhelmed by the mythology unit in middle school, but I would have loved this mythology-inspired story. And as an adult (who&apo...

    The artwork is lovely, but, even with the mystery element, I didn?t care for the characters. Artemis has the most personality here even if she is grumpy most of the time. Karen is just overly clueless, and the dialogue feels slightly off, at times. The ending is very cheerful, but no...

    This graphic novel was SO CUTE! When Karen moves to Mt. Olympus to stay with her dad for a while, she didn't think she'd be transferring to a school for gods, goddesses, and other mythical beings. She also definitely didn't think she would find out that she's a ...

    Karen is sent to live with her father on Mount Olympus, where she learns that the Greek gods are real...and some of them go to her junior high! Cute concept but meh execution. I felt like there were too many panels per scene, and a lot of the panels were just filler information. Sam...
