Teaser Tuesday (11)

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

This week's teaser is from...
Oh. My. Gods. by Tera Lynn Childs


If Phoebe Castro can keep her grades up and have another stellar cross-country season, her dream of attending USC with her best friends is only a track scholarship away. She’s made all her plans, so it’s a complete shock when her mom announces she’s marrying a mysterious stranger and moving them half-way around the world—to Greece. 
Phoebe’s stuck on a secret island in the Aegean attending the super-exclusive Academy, where her new stepfather is the headmaster and the kids are anything but your average students—they are descendants of the Greek gods, super powers included. That’s right, Greek gods are no myth! If Phoebe thought high school was hard, she knows this is going to be mortal misery. 
Securing that scholarship seems like Phoebe’s only ticket out of Greece, but training and maintaining her grades will be grueling, even without a sabotaging stepsister from Hades and a gorgeous guy—what a god!—who just might be her Achilles heel. One thing is for sure—summoning the will to win and find her place among the gods could be Phoebe’s toughest course yet. 
The Greek gods get a makeover in this romantic odyssey of mythic proportion.

First Teaser:

This Ones a Surprise for me too :)

I read this book a while ago, and loved it. I have yet to read the next one because there are so many other books out there to read and I have yet to get to it.
