High school romance is tough-even for a bona fide love goddess. Can Cupid succeed as a mortal matchmaker? When Eros (aka Cupid) is expelled from Olympus for defying Zeus after falling in love with Orion, she is banished to what she believes to be hell. We call it New Jersey. If she ever wants to go back to the comforts of her old life, she will have to find love for three couples-without using her powers. Eros, now calling herself True, immediately identifies her first project in Charlie and believes finding him love will be a piece of cake. Charlie is new at school and eager to break out of his old image of band geek, so it's lucky for him when he falls in with the right crowd on his first day. But music is still his passion. That is, until he meets Katrina... Katrina is floundering after the death of her father and takes refuge with a boy who, while not entirely supportive, will be there when she needs him, unlike her mother. Too bad True thinks any girl Charlie talks to is perfect for him. Can she get out of her own way and help Charlie and Katrina connect, or will she be stuck in New Jersey forever?… (mer)

The author did a good job of accurately describing teen behavior and making the characters believable. I like that it's told from multiple points of view so you get an interesting story but I was glad I had bought the other 2 so I could keep the story going. ( )

Kieran Scott writes amusing books about high school life, and in this case, adds a fantasy element by basing her story around the teenaged love goddess Eros, who is ejected from Mount Olympus for defying Zeus. (Eros committed the crime of falling in love with a mortal, Orion, and rescuing him from his place in the stars.) Since Zeus considers Eros’s mother, Aphrodite, complicit in what Eros did, Aphrodite is banished as well. Their punishment will be lifted only if and when Eros, without any special powers on Earth, nevertheless completes the task of forming true love between three couples. Thus, Eros ends up in a place she considers to be hell, i.e., New Jersey, and she enters high school under the name of “True Olympia.”

Yes, it’s sort of Percy Jackson for the YA set. [Perseus "Percy" Jackson is the title character and narrator of Rick Riordan's "Percy Jackson & the Olympians," a wildly popular series for middle graders.]

The reactions of these goddesses to life on Earth, and the ways in which they try to adjust (often not very successfully) provide many opportunities for humorous observations. In addition, the teens that True meets and tries to match up provide more occasions for the author to make her waggish observations about high school life.

The story does end, but also provides a bit of a cliffhanger to pave the way for the next book in the series.

Evaluation: This is a light and entertaining read. ( )

Forget everything you ever knew about mythology, because Kieran Scott has probably changed it. This is such a cute and fun novel and I can't wait to read more of the series. When will True get home to Olympus and her love? ( )
