And You Thought YOUR Family Was Dysfunctional
The Chaos of Stars, by Kiersten White
Have you ever had trouble communicating with your parents? Sometimes, they just don't get it. Well, in Isadora's case, they really don't get it--because Isadora's parents are Osiris and Isis, the two most important deities in the Egyptian pantheon. Her parents, aunts, and uncles may all be gods, but Isadora is mortal, and she can't wait to get out of her house and live her life. After some troubling dreams, Isadora's mother (you know, the goddess Isis) sends her to live with an elder half-brother in San Diego, where she's supposed to spend the summer working at a museum. But the trouble may have followed her from Egypt...
