Sophie Bloom's junior year has been a bit of a train wreck. After the world's greatest kiss re-awakened Sophie's true identity as Persephone (Goddess of Spring and Savior of Humanity), she fought her dragon-lady guidance counselor to the death, navigated mean girl Bethany's bitchy troublemaking, and dealt with the betrayal of her backstabbing ex, Kai (sexy Prince of Darkness). You'd think a girl could catch a break.
With Zeus stepping things up, it's vital that Sophie retrieve Persephone's memories and discover the location of the ritual to stop Zeus and Hades. So when Aphrodite strikes a deal that can unlock Sophie's pre-mortal past, what choice does the teen goddess have but to accept?
The mission: stop media mogul Hermes from turning Bethany into a global mega-celebrity. The catch? Aphrodite partners Sophie and Kai to work together... and treat this suicide mission as a date. Which could work out for Sophie's plan to force Kai to admit his feelings for her -- if she doesn't kill him first.
Add to the fact that BFF Theo's love life and other BFF Hannah's actual life are in Sophie's hands, and suddenly being a teenager -- even a godlike one -- seems a bit like... well, hell. Whatever happened to dinner and a movie?
The YA romantic comedy / Greek mythology fireworks continue to fly in My Date From Hell. Love meets comedy with a whole lot of sass in book two of this teen fantasy romance series. Breaking up is easy; dating is deadly.
