Emily Roberson at Durham Academy Upper School for Lifestyles of Gods & Monsters
Greek mythology meets the Kardashians in this fresh, fast-paced debut young adult novel about celebrity culture, family dynamics, and finding love amidst it all.
Sixteen-year-old Ariadne’s life is shared with the world. Her royal family’s entertainment empire hosts The Labyrinth Contest, a TV extravaganza in which Ariadne leads fourteen teens into a maze to kill a monster. To win means glory; to lose means death. In ten seasons, no one has ever won. When the gorgeous, mysterious Theseus arrives at the competition and asks Ariadne to help him win, she doesn’t expect to fall for him. Their chemistry is undeniable, though, and she can help him survive. If he wins, the contest would end for good. But if she betrays her family, more than their empire is at stake—the monster would have to die. And for Ariadne, his life might be the only one worth saving. If her every move is watched by the public and predestined by the gods, can she forge her own destiny and save the people she loves?
