6th Grade Entry - The Lightning Thief

6th graders at WOMS have been invited to post guest entries on my blog for YA books they’ve recently read. This is Sergio’s entry. Thanks, Sergio!

The Lightning Thief
Rick Riordan
Hyperion Paperbacks, 375 pages

Percy Jackson always gets kicked out of school. Percy lives in a small apartment in New York with his mom and stepdad. His real dad left to a sea voyage before Percy was born. Percy thinks he is dead. Eventually, he has to go to a camp his dad wanted him to go. It is called Half-Blood Camp. There, he is granted a quest to find Zues's stolen lightning bolt.

Percy has ADHD and dyslexia. Before the quest, Percy didn't even believe in gods. The quest turned him into a different person.

Percy is a great character to put in a mythological book. This book makes mythology fun, easy, and funny. Humor is perfectly placed in the right spots to give this book a two thumbs up.

I'd recommend this book to readers that like mythology or know a lot about it. If you like humor, pick this book up and read it.
