About the Book: Percy Jackson has been labled as a bad kid. He's been kicked out of numerous schools, has ADD, and can't seem to stay out of trouble. All this changes when he discovers he's not a bad kid at all-he's just got different wiring because he's actually half greek god and half human! Yep, those ancient greek gods are alive and well and living in New York. So what's newly discovered demigod to do? Spend summer at Camp Halfblood of course! But things are not perfect on Mt. Olympus-Zeus' lightning bolt has been stolen and Percy is the prime suspect. Can Percy stop the brewing war, clear his name and still make it to seventh grade?
Green Bean Teen Queen Says: This was one of my top picks for 2007. It's action packed, full of humor, and the modern twist is a great introduction to greek mythology. This is also a great pick for all you readers who say "but I don't really like reading!" Give the first chapter a try-you'll be hooked! With three books in the series right now and the fourth coming in May(I can't wait!) this is one series you won't want to miss.
