After a summer spent trying to prevent a catastrophic war among the Greek gods, Percy Jackson finds his seventh-grade school year unnervingly quiet. His biggest problem is dealing with his new friend, Tyson-a six-foot-three, mentally challenged homeless kid who follows Percy everywhere, making it hard for Percy to have any "normal" friends.
But things don't stay quiet for long. Percy soon discovers there is trouble at Camp Half-Blood: the magical borders which protect Half-Blood Hill have been poisoned by a mysterious enemy, and the only safe haven for demigods is on the verge of being overrun by mythological monsters. To save the camp, Percy needs the help of his best friend, Grover, who has been taken prisoner by the Cyclops Polyphemus on an island somewhere in the Sea of Monsters, the dangerous waters Greek heroes have sailed for millennia-only today, the Sea of Monsters goes by a new name.the Bermuda Triangle.
Now Percy and his friends-Grover, Annabeth, and Tyson-must retrieve the Golden Fleece from the Island of the Cyclopes by the end of the summer or Camp Half-Blood will be destroyed. But first, Percy will learn a stunning new secret about his family-one that makes him question whether being claimed as Poseidon's son is an honor or simply a cruel joke.

                      In this jam-packed sequel to "Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief," Rick Riordan's suspenseful and positively intriguing writing will have readers on the edge of their seat. Perseus Jackson, son of Poseidon, is back at yet another school after being kicked out of Yancy Academy. His only friend is Tyson, who stands several feet taller than anyone else but is really the least intimidating person in the world. So when a simple game of dodgeball suddenly becomes a deathmatch, Tyson shouldn't be able to help, but somehow he finds the strength to. And when Percy's friend Annabeth Chase appears, bringing bad news about Camp Half-Blood, Percy's world is about to change like never before.
