Book Review~The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter
Kate has given up her high school years to take care of her mom who has been beating cancer for three and a half years longer than the doctor's prognosis. Kate's mom has her drive them to Eden, Michigan so that she can die in the town she was born. Kate enrolls in high school and is an immediate curiosity in the small town. She ends up reluctantly agreeing to go to a party with the local beauty/head cheerleader Ava. She soon discovers there's no party and Ava plans to leave her stranded in the middle of nowhere. Things quickly take an unexpected turn when Ava hits her head in the river and Kate decides to save her even though she is afraid of water and cannot swim. A stranger appears offering to help and Kate promises to do anything if it will make Ava live. Kate soon finds herself facing the prospect of becoming the wife of Henry (who is actually Hades) if she passes a series of tests.
I really enjoyed this book! It was a good, fast read! I was thrilled to find out it is part of a scheduled trilogy and can't wait to read the next one!
