Getting sucked inside a book was just the beginning.
Megan Montgomery is looking forward to a nice, quiet Easter holiday. No school, no homework, time with her friends. Then her father informs her Mr. Hemmlich, a potential client and archaeologist, is coming to stay with them for the entire week.
Her dreams of goofing off go up in smoke-until Hemmlich arrives with his handsome teenage son in tow. Things are definitely looking up.
Megan’s excitement quickly turns to suspicion when Hemmlich starts asking questions about the manor and its builder, Sir Gregory. Is it just admiration for Sir Gregory’s work? Or could Hemmlich know about the Library of Athena, the secret room full of magic books hidden deep beneath the manor?
It shouldn’t be possible. But then again, if she can get sucked inside a book…
The sleepover is intended to cement Megan’s new friendship with Rachel, Claire, and Harriet. They would do the usual stuff—talking till the wee hours, painting each other’s nails, gossiping. The Parthenon, the huge manor she and her father live in, is even supposed to be haunted so…seance!
But Megan stumbles on a loose hearthstone, revealing an old diary and a mysterious key. Before the night is out, the girls are on a dangerous journey into the myths of ancient Greece, and Megan’s job is to make sure everyone gets back alive despite gorgons, sea monsters, and sphinxes.
