Pandora Gets Jealous: Book Review

 This book review was done by my daughter who is twelve years old. She reads all the time and can read fast with great comprehension. Heres' her opinion about Pandora Gets Jealous by Carolyn Hennesy.
                  This book is about Pandora Atheneus Andromaeche Helena (Pandy) daughter of Prometheus.  Long ago mankind was very selfish, there weren't any sacrifices to the Gods. If there were any sacrifices they were only bad parts while saving the good parts for the feasts. Zeus then took fire from the earth leaving it freezing. Prometheus the Titan took fire by his hands giving it back to Earth.  When Zeus found out he gave Prometheus a big punishment. A vulture came and feasted on Prometheus' liver. Prometheus was a immortal so his liver grew back which made his punishment last for years. When Zeus ended Prometheus' punishment he gave him a box with seven terrible evils sealed inside, like jealousy and vanity. If anyone was to break Zeus' seal the earth would fall into destruction. One day Pandora found the box and opened it at school. Now Pandora must capture all the evils, she already found jealousy. I really enjoyed this book. My favorite part was when Pandora found out she had the power to control fire. I spotted this book at Barnes and Nobles on the shelf marked for middle school aged reading. This is just Book One there are others in this series.
