Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief
‘Troubled’ New York teenager Percy never asked to be a half-blood: half boy, half Greek god. But when he finally meets his dad – scary god Poseidon, bringer of storms and earthquakes – Percy goes from playing basketball to battling monsters, fighting to stay alive! At first life doesn’t seem too bad at Half Blood Hill, the Long Island summer camp for young demigods where Percy is sent to start his training. But now that Zeus, God of the sky, thinks Percy has stolen his lightning bolt, things are going VERY WRONG INDEED. Can Percy find it before a war of the gods erupts?
Now I am sooooo interested in Greek gods and mythology that I want to start learning Greek.

I love these books! Just finished the last one and I am unhappy because I really wanted more :-( . I also, in general, love Rick Riordan’s books, and they are so awesome!
This book,and the whole series, is epic and I recommend it to confident readers aged 9+.
