women-centered myth retelling
As a kid, I enjoyed the Greek myths that seemed to be a phase in any young reader and then I was a young mom when myths made a comeback so my daughters became avid fans. But now I have come to appreciate that myths are coming back around being retold from different perspectives and with more depth and detail that the picture books and stories from my childhood. In this First Look, I'm eager to learn more about Clytemnestra's story, I'm excited by her ferocity as an athlete and warrior as well as her loyalty and protection of her sister, Helen. I love that the story centers on strong female characters beyond Clytemnestra and I look forward to seeing their further development in the chapters to come.
