The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter

Every girl who has taken the test has died.

Now it's Kate's turn.

It's always been just Kate and her mom--and now her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall.

Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld--and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.

Kate is sure he's crazy--until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess.

If she fails..

From Goodreads.com

The summary really says it all. You have the main character Kate who is a new girl in town. Then you meet the mysterious Henry. These two main characters made the book noteworthy. The struggles Kate has to go through while dealing with her dying mother, moving to a new town, and discovering the supernatural world are written well. I love Greek mythology and Aimee brings the known world of gods to a new level. 
I like Kate. She’s a real character who deals with life’s trials with a strong attitude. I like the fact that she doesn’t give up on things or people. Her strong character brings out the best in others and she learns how to push herself and those around her to strive to be better. Henry is an interesting character. His love and devotion is beautiful, but he is also a tortured soul, so to speak. The contrast between the two is unique. I love their relationship. The fact that it takes time for each party to develop the connection they do is a great addition to the story. Here, both Henry and Kate, although are attracted to each other, must first learn much about life before they can be together. Aimee did a wonderful job with this story and I can’t wait for more. 
When picking up the book, be prepared for a lot of twists and turns and a story that keeps you turning the pages. I always have a hard time discussing ARC’s because there is so much more that could be said. The Goddess Test comes out April 26th. 
Happy reading,
