Breaking News! Persephone Kidnapped! BY: Shannon

Peresephone, the goddess of spring and flowers, has been kidnapped! Demeter is heart broken and not growing anything! The only suspect in this crime is Hades the lord of the dead. The story is, Persephone was out picking flowers with her "friends" and Hades kidnapped the poor goddess and took her to the underworld. Demeter searched for Peresephone for ten days. Hermes (our publisher) went down to save Peresephone from Hades, but she now has to stay with him for six months. Demeter refuses to grow anything for those six months

Jennifer Compared To Persephone

By: Valerie

She is like Demeter not like Persephone and she is crazy and she can be a bit crazy when her daughter was in the underworld she stopped growing food she shouldn’t of thought of her self and people probably died. Jennifer did not do that but she did make a mistake is that she made bad choices when she was older like she kicked Josh Hutchinson.
