Overview

One summer.

Three fates.

all goddess.

Three girls are about to have a summer they will never forget. They've all taken jobs at King's Crown, looking for something they think they'll find at Colorado's most luxurious mountain resort.

Seneca, the daughter of an Oscar-winning actress, schmoozes with the Hollywood power players to get back on the A-list.

Drew, an elite athlete, trains in the mountains to gain a competitive edge and to escape the horrors of home.

Claire, a local girl, is looking for a second chance to get her life on track.

Thrown together as roommates, at first all Seneca, Drew, and Claire can see are their differences. But fate brings them together on purpose — for the support, guidance, and friendship they can only get from one another. Once they realize this, they also discover that what they needed most they can find with the help of a fellow goddess.

Spend a summer at the spa celebrating friendship, life, and the inner goddess in us all.

School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up
Three teens arrive at King's Crown Resort and Spa in Colorado to work for the summer. Claire is a local trying to overcome her party-girl image and turns to God for comfort through a difficult time, but she is rejected by the other girls. Seneca is the daughter of a formerly A-list actress who is struggling to stay on the inside of the Hollywood elite. Drew, an avid runner, has come to train in the thin mountain air, hoping to get an edge on the competition back home in Kansas. The girls, forced together as roommates, clash over everything from bathroom privileges to boyfriends. Tension builds among them and they fight to maintain peace in their small cabin as each one struggles with her own secrets and personal dramas. Not surprisingly, they overcome their differences, become friends, and ultimately share what's going on in their lives. The tired premise offers nothing new or original here. The author spends a great deal of time developing the characters and their separate story lines without focusing on the plot that holds the teens together. The scenes of their fighting and baring their souls are filled with trite dialogue, making for unbelievable teenage angst. For fun summer reads, stick with Ann Brashares's "Sisterhood" books (Delacorte) or Jodi Lynn Anderson's Peaches (HarperCollins, 2005).
