Athena the Wise is the 5th book in the Goddess Girls series, and it is about Athena meeting a new boy named Heracles who is simple and determined at heart, and Athena is helping him complete his 12 labors put there by his annoying cousin, and if he didn't do his 12 labors in time, he would not be allowed to stay at Mount Olympus Academy, for he is merely a mortal demi-god. 


Athena isn't the only new kid at Mount Olympus!

When a mortal named Heracles transfers to Mount Olympus Academy, Athena understands what he's going through. She started there a few months ago herself. Not only does Heracles need help fitting in, he also has to complete 12 "labors" or be kicked out of school! When Athena's dad, Principal Zeus, asks her to secretly look after the new boy, she winds up capturing mythical beasts and shoveling poop. It will take all her famed wisdom to sort out her own problems and help Heracles succeed! 


Athena would rather focus on her studies than on other people, but she has to help Heracles complete all of his 12 labors, otherwise he would be banished from Mount Olympus, and with that, she decides to help him. She did think that Heracles was rather different than other godboys at MOA, and when his 12th labor includes kissing Athena, the ending results were very satisfying.
