Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs

Grace just moved to San Francisco and is excited to start over at a new school. The change is full of fresh possibilities, but it's also a tiny bit scary. It gets scarier when a minotaur walks in the door. And even more shocking when a girl who looks just like her shows up to fight the monster. Gretchen is tired of monsters pulling her out into the wee hours, especially on a school night, but what can she do? Sending the minotaur back to his bleak home is just another notch on her combat belt. She never expected to run into this girl who could be her double, though. Greer has her life pretty well put together, thank you very much. But that all tilts sideways when two girls who look eerily like her appear on her doorstep and claim they're triplets, supernatural descendants of some hideous creature from Greek myth, destined to spend their lives hunting monsters. These three teenage descendants of Medusa, the once-beautiful Gorgon maligned in myth, must reunite and embrace their fates in this unique paranormal world where monsters lurk in plain sight.

Mrs. Lassley's Review
I have had this book in my "Must Read" pile for awhile. I even have an ARC for Sweet Shadows, book two in the series. After reading it, I am kicking myself for waiting so long. Anyone who loves mythology, but is tired of Percy, this is your book. Each girl is bringing to the table something different and they each have their own strengths. This is further brought out in Sweet Shadows. They are also each trying to have a semi-normal life, which is not really working for them. Between this and the author's other series, Just for Fins, I am having a fun summer!
