THE GODDESS TEST
by Aimee Carter

Every girl who has taken the test has died.

Now it's Kate's turn..


It's always been just Kate and her mom--and now her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall.


Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld--and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.


Kate is sure he's crazy--until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess.


If she fails . .

  4. So many great pre-order arrivals! I don't know if they group awesome books to come out at the same time, or if there are just that many awesome books, but each week seems to have so many I want to read. I hope you have fun reading all of your books!
