Troy High by Shana Norris


Troy High by Shana Norris

Homer's classic tale of love and revenge is retold for the teen audience in TROY HIGH. Narrated by Cassie (Cassandra), this story follows the Trojans and Spartans as they declare war on the football field to end their high school rivalry once and for all. After Elena (Helen of Troy) transfers to Troy High and falls madly in love with Cassie's brother Perry (Paris), her ex Lucas (Meneleas) and his brother Greg Mennon (Agamemnon) want to settle the score. The schools pull pranks on each other which culminate in the annual Homecoming game and dance. The Trojans are led by star quarterback Hunter (Hector) and the Spartans have a secret weapon in Ackley (Achilles). But it's not all football and scheming as Cassie is forced to choose between the boy she loves (Greg, a Spartan) and loyalty to her school. A fast paced, fun, contemporary interpretation of the Troy myth by the author of SOMETHING TO BLOG ABOUT.
