Well-researched and true to the original myths, each volume in the Goddess Girls series addresses contemporary issues like friendships and relationships from a classically accurate--and entertaining--persepective.

In Aphrodite the Beauty , Aphrodite, goddessgirl of love, must deal with jealousy after giving Athena a makeover. It doesn't seem fair that the godboys pay more attention to her friend when Aphrodite is supposed to be destined for love! She also copes with a crush from an unlikely source--the nerdy Hephaestus (god of the smith)--and learns that love comes in many forms.

Aphrodite always thinks about others and how they would feel.

I'm not really sure how empowering these are for girls. Some of the messages are pretty good but this is my third Goddess Girls book and they seem to be a bit superficial. I already have one more checked out of the library and, once I read that, I may decide to not read any more. I had wanted to find positive books for my young female friends, ages 8 and 11; don't think these will be on my list for them.

Morale of the story is not to be jealous of your friends.

Aphrodite delights in helping people fall in love, but she's really annoyed by the constant attention from the godboys. When Aphrodite decides to give Athena a makeover thinking that she likes someone, she doesn't know the result. Almost every godboy is flirting with Athena. Especially Ares Aphrodite's crush. She starts getting jealous and jealous. But then she soon finds out she also has to help Hippomenes win to a race against the princess who's a really fast runner, Atlanta. Hippomenes wins in the end and Athena tells the reason why she wanted a makeover. In the end everything works out.
