Oh. My. Gods. by Tera Lynn Childs

Phoebe Castro excels at running and has the potential to get a full ride to USC for track. But her mother has decided to remarry and move them to a hidden island that houses a school for descendants of Greek gods. (Her new step-dad is the headmaster.) So Phoebe has to keep her grades up and continue running so she can secure the scholarship and get back to the US and her friends. But since she is the only NOTHOS at the school (a normal person) she faces a lot of prejudice not to mention an evil stepsister and a ton of competition against athletes with mythological powers. This was a really fun read, if a little predictable (she really loves her Nike shoes). It has a lot of teen appeal but I'm not sure if it'll stand up to the test of time and would like to hear others thoughts on this. I say yes for now.

Fun read, but a little too fluffy for me. I don't think that it has universal appeal so I'm voting No
