Book Review - Go the Distance: A Twisted Tale

Go the Distance: A Twisted Tale

About the Book
The 11th installment in the New York Times best-selling A TWISTED TALE series asks: What if Meg had to become a Greek god?

After Hercules proves he's a true hero and regains his godship, all seems right in the world. That is, until Zeus tells Meg that she can't be with Hercules because she's, well, mortal. Luckily, Hera has a solution, offering Meg a chance to prove herself worthy of a spot on Mt. Olympus--as a god. All Meg has to do is complete a mysterious quest.

The mission? Oh, just to rescue her ex's current wife from the Underworld. The ex-boyfriend she saved by selling her soul to Hades. The ex-boyfriend who immediately moved on to someone else while she was stuck in the Underworld. Can Meg put her past behind her and use her quick-wit to defeat monsters and gods alike, including the nefarious Hades? Will she finally figure out her place and contribution to the world? Or will her fear of commitment have her running away from an eternity of godhood with Herc?

Written by the author of Mirror, Mirror and Conceal, Don't Feel, Jen Calonita's latest twist is sure to delight and surprise.

My Take on the Book
This is another great book in the Twisted Tale series of books. As someone that has loved reading the other ones and as a fan of Hercules, this was a story I was excited to read and my daughter was too. The book was a great story as my daughter was always a very BIG fan of Meg. This story looks at Meg in a whole new way and allows you to see whether Meg can become a god on Mt. Olympus. The thing that we loved was that this book looks at the checkered past of Meg, but allows you to experience and see whether Meg can do what she can to earn a seat as a Greek god. You will see Meg struggle with who she is, question her past, present and future and in the end, find that this book is a ton of fun to read for the whole family!
