Hardcover vs. Paperback 6

Oh. My. Gods. by Tera Lynn Childs

Hardcover

Paperback


A modern girl’s comedic odyssey in a school filled with the descendants of Greek gods.
When Phoebe’s mom returns from Greece with a new husband and moves them to an island in the Aegean, Phoebe’s plans for her senior year and track season are ancient history. Now she must attend the uberexclusive academy, where admission depends on pedigree, namely, ancestry from Zeus, Hera, and other Greek gods. That’s right, they’re real, not myth, and their teen descendants are like the classical heroes—supersmart and superbeautiful with a few superpowers. And now they’re on her track team! Armed only with her Nikes and the will to win, Phoebe races to find her place among the gods.

I was never too fond of the hardcover so when I saw the paperback, and I liked it, I was so happy! I like that the colors were maintained but used with a different image! The image is much cuter and I love the addition of the sparkles!

Hardcover or Paperback?

  3. I agree with Keri- I enjoy the hardcover, but the paperback is cuter. I was very pleased with it when I saw it in Penguin's catalog.

  6. The paperback is much better. The hardcover isn't too bad though. It intrigued me to learn more when I first saw it earlier this year. :)

  12. I definitely like the paperback better. When I first saw the hardcover, I thought it would be about a boy-crazy girl or something. I think the paperback goes better with the story.

    I am so glad they changed this cover. The hardcover is atrocious. Jaw-droppingly ugly. I had to take it off my copy because I was so embarrassed by it. the paperback is cute and fits the book much better than a giant naked man.

    sharonanne- Hope you find it!
