Percy Jackson and the lightning thief is one of the best books I've ever read. It's about this boy named Percy that goes to a camp called Camp Half-Blood he is the son of Poseidon. If he lives in the outside world he would attract monsters. His best friend's name is Grover that is a satyr that Percy soon realizes when he goes to Camp Half-Blood. He meets a girl named Annebeth and becomes her friend. Percy, Grover, and Annebeth go on a quest to retrieve the lightning bolt and give it back to Zeus by the summer solstice. They have to face evil monsters such as the hydra and Medusa. He was given 3 blue pearls by a nereid saying they are gifts from his father. They allow you to go anywhere when you step on them. Percy and his friends go to the underworld to get the lightning bolt from Hades. They realize that he didn't steal the lightning bolt and it was Ares and it was in his shield. Ares also stole Hades helm. Hades thought that Percy stole it. They returned the helm to Hades and the lightning bolt to Zeus. When he goes back to Camp Half-Blood, he gets betrayed by a friend, like the Oracle stated. That friend was Luke that tried to kill him. When Luke gets defeated the summer is over and he returns home to his mom. Another adventure awaits next year. This was a really interesting book and I recommend people to read it.
