Overview

"Tut: The Story of My Immortal Life" is a funny, fast-paced novel for young readers by P.J. Hoover which chronicles the mischievous adventures of King Tut, now an immortal eighth-grader living in Washington, D.C..

You'd think it would be great being an Egyptian demigod, but if King Tut has to sit through eighth grade one more time, he'll mummify himself.

Granted the gift of immortality by the gods or is it a curse? Tut has been stuck in middle school for ages. Even worse, evil General Horemheb, the man who killed Tut's father and whom Tut imprisoned in a tomb for three thousand years, is out and after him. The general is in league with the Cult of Set, a bunch of guys who worship one of the scariest gods of the Egyptian pantheon Set, the god of Chaos.

The General and the Cult of Set have plans for Tut and if Tut doesn't find a way to keep out of their clutches, he'll never make it to the afterworld alive."

Hoover (Solstice) brings her interest in mythology to a middle-grade audience with this entertaining tale, which reimagines the Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun as a perpetually 14-year-old immortal. Tut currently lives in Washington, D.C., with his older brother Gil (secretly the Sumerian hero Gilgamesh) and the god Horus (in the form of a one-eyed cat). When Tut’s ancient enemy, General Horemheb, resurfaces after thousands of years, Tut sees the opportunity for much-delayed revenge. As Tut tries to obtain a weapon that can kill an immortal, he and his allies contend with an apocalyptic plot brought about by the Cult of Set. Quirky interpretations of Egyptian gods abound as Tut tries to save the day, repeatedly confronted by cute yet mysterious Tia: is she ally or enemy? The entertaining premise and fast pace keep this adventure on track, while the way Hoover reimagines the Egyptian pantheon—Isis owning a chain of funeral parlors, for instance—is pleasantly reminiscent of Rick Riordan’s work. The only drawback is the number of questions left unanswered for future books. Ages 8–12. Agent: Laura Rennert and Lara Perkins, Andrea Brown Literary Agency. (Sept.)
