    Fans of Rick Riordan's Greek mythology–inspired stories with modern kids will love this fresh, inclusive title featuring a squad of goddesses whose job it is to inspire humans. Callie Martinez-Silva, a Cuban American girl from Miami, learns she embodies one of the nine muses after she accidentally turns her best friend into a pop star. She is one of four junior, newly awakened muses, who adopt the name Muse Squad when they receive their first assignment: Maya Rivero, one of Callie's classmates who is fated to change the world (and save Florida from floods). The narrative sticks to its theme of love in all forms brilliantly and isn't just set in Miami; Acevedo, a professor at the University of Miami, depicts the Magic City in rich detail, giving it life and context in the story, which is action-packed, as the squad has to protect Maya's destiny from the chaos-loving Sirens, who plan to unleash a curse that will ruin her future. Clever references to the Odyssey and the muses in media round out this fun take on the ones who inspire, rather than just the heroes. Grades 3-6. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
