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."
I find Charis: Journey to Pandora's Jar an intriguing book, capturing details perfectly and describing the gods exactly how I imagine them. It also includes a good mix of action and drama, some romance, too, when Gabe kisses her once or twice.
