2010 book 101

Tera Lynn Childs' Oh. My. Gods.
This book is kind of like Mean Girls meets Percy Jackson, only not very good. Actually, the first half is ok, as a girl is forced to move w/ her mom and her new stepdad to a small island in Greece, where she has to go to school w/ kids who turn out to be descendants of the Greek Gods. And there's the usual crush on the popular guy w/ the popular bitchy girlfriend, and the quirky new friend, etc. It's slightly elevated by the protagonist being an athlete--she's a star runner and is working her way to a scholarship to USC--but the end is a terrible mishmash of YA fantasy cliches that just made me want to put it down and not even finish.
