The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series #1) - Rick Riordan

This book was a great start to this series; I like how Percy finds out who he is and how is works towards some sort of understanding of how is life has been different from those around him.  I also love the dedication and love he has towards his mom; willing to sacrifice for her.  I also Annabeth like and how she is the anchor that Percy needs at times.  Grover also helps keep the book going with his odd eating habits.

My Grade: B


Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. And that's the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy’s Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he’s angered a few of them. Zeus’s master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect.
Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus’s stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.
With cover art from the major motion picture, this first installment of Rick Riordan's best-selling series is a non-stop thrill-ride and a classic of mythic proportions.

Age Range: 9-11
