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. And then things turn weird. It turns out her favorite substitute is a snake, the pretty angel charm she found is a goddess, and she is the only hope for the world. All of Charis’s battles so far are just with Lauren, the most popular girl in school, and also the meanest. Until the friday of the Ancients Alive exhibit, when she learns the true meaning of “fight”.
How would you feel if all the miseries of the world were yours to fix? When I read Charis, I was sympathetic for her. I mean if you had to battle horrific monsters from the underworld,who wouldn’t freak out? I really liked how Nicole Walters uses a lot of details. It made the book a lot more interesting. Another thing I liked was it was very clear who was talking. It was really easy to follow, but interesting and fast paced. There is one con. The ending was kind of disappointing. All in all, though, I really liked it.
