The Lightning Thief


Written by: Rick Riordan

Pages: 375

My rating 1-5 stars:

5 stars!!!

fiction

Percy Jackson is not a normal 12 year old. He is dyslexic, he has ADHD and he has never stayed at a school for more than a year. He is in the sixth grade at Yancy Academy, a school for misbehaving students. Other than him being on probation, every thing is okay. Mr. Brunner, his Latin teacher has shown great interest in Percy and his knowledge of Greek mythology. Percy has also met a true friend, Grover Underwood.
On a school field trip everything goes wrong. Nancy Bobofit won't stop throwing food at Grover, and it has pushed Percy over the edge. He tries to do what every guidance counselor has told him "Count to ten, get control of your temper" (quote from book). As rage fills him he notices that Nancy had fallen backwards into a water fountain. When his strange math teacher Mrs. Dobbs asks what happens, Nancy tells her that Percy has pushed her. Percy is confused, he doesn't remember pushing Nancy or did he?
A notice is sent to his mother stating that he will not be able to return to the school next year because of his behavior. When he returns home he is rudely welcomed home by his malodorous step-dad. He keeps his calm because he doesn't want his step-dad to reconsider letting him and his mom go to the beach for a few days. But what he doesn't know is that he is about to discover a whole new world.


Even though this book is a book mainly for pre-teens, I loved it. Reading this book made me wish I was Percy. The book is so descriptive that you can picture every thing that is happening perfectly. It was a quick and easy read, that kept my eyes adhered to every word on every page. This is a must read for every reader that loves adventure, suspense, funny, and even mystery books. Be warned you will not be able to stop reading this book, so make sure you have batteries in that flashlight by your bed.
