This book is a retelling of Homer’s The Iliad but in a modern contemporary way. Everyone has heard of The Trojan War well this is a retelling of it but instead of being cities they’re high schools. The Trojans (Troy High) and The Spartans (Lacede High). It’s really interesting and there’s a love story involved which is what makes it contemporary. I read This for The first time about 4 years ago and I’ve re-read it many times since then. It’s always fun to read and I never get bored of it 💞.
Here’s The synopsis on The back of The book:
Homer’s Iliad, a classic tale of love and revenge is shrewdly retold in Troy High. Narrated by Cassie, a shy outsider who fears that an epic High school rivalry is about to go up in The flames, The story follows The battling Trojans and Spartans as they declare war on The football field. After The beautiful Elena –who used to be The captain of The Spartan cheerleaders – transfers to Troy High and falls madly in love with Cassie’s brother Perry, the Spartans vow that The annual homecoming game eleven never be forgotten.
The Trojans and Spartans pull outrageous pranks on each other as homecoming approaches. But The stakes are raised when Cassie is forced to choose between The boy she loves (a Spartan) and loyalty to her family and school.
Troy High will seduce readers with it’s cast of mythic proportions.
