Profile Picture

Charis is a middle school girl with a mother, a father, a brother and two friends, Gabe and Andy. Charis is writing a school play about Pandora's Jar. A museum curator goes missing and is replaced by creepy Mr. Al Ecto. She meets Athena, Hermes and Hades in dreams and slowly finds herself facing her fate - save Pandora's Jar. THe goddess Nike meets Charis after flying into her backpack and hangin around as a keychain. It ends with a message from Zeus in a foggy mirror, saying " I still believe in you."

If thirteen-year-old Charis Parks were normal, that would be a relief to her, the world, and the gods. But sadly for her, the world, and the gods, she isn’t normal. It all starts with a dream.

With two parents, Mona and Evan, a teenage brother, and a friend she has had since third grade, Charis Parks seems like a normal girl. She even thinks she is a normal girl! Let's just say that she gets quite the surprise. After finding a little statuette in her backpack, then being told it is really the goddess Nike in a miniature form by the truly lovely Athena from her dreams, and that her favorite substitute teacher, Mr. Papadakis is really Erichthonius, the son of Athena and Hephaestus and (weird alert!) has a snake for a leg, Charis is weirded out!
