Percy Jackson & The Olympians Book One:
The Lighting Thief
by Rick Riordan
Hyperion, $7.99, 375pp
Release Date: April 1, 2006
Percy Jackson seems to be an average juvenile delinquent, but he is more than that. The twelve-year old boy will find out a secret that will change his life. Percy will also find out something about his missing dad. But first, he must go to camp in order to be protected from Greek monsters.
Enjoyable. Modernizes the Greek gods in today's society. Recommended to fans of Greek mythology and/or Harry Potter series (without learning magic, Latin, and schools but doing Greek, combat, and camp, instead). ~~ Jeffrey Lu
