Tut: The Story of My Immortal Life by P.J. Hoover
Fun YA fantasy/historicalish fiction. King Tut was immortalized at the age of 14 and has been living an immortal in hiding sort of life ever since then. In current times, he is in middle school in Washington DC with his cat Horus - yes, the actual god -and his friend and protector, Gilgamesh, who usually goes by Gil. Very little information is given about what Tut and Gil have been doing for the last few thousand years, which makes this story of the eternal 14 year old a bit lacking. Now, he has to fight Horemheb again or be taken down by Set. Along with his friend Henry and a cute girl named Tia, Tut sets out to exact his revenge - which does not work according to plan. It is a cute story for middle school age kids.
