Book: Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief (#1)
Author: Rick Riordon
Summary of this book: A boy named Percy Jackson has ADHD and Dyslexia, who is a half-blood because his father is one of the main three gods, Poseidon, who is the god of water. His best friend Grover realizes that he is in danger when a fury who disguises as his math teacher tries to kill him. Grover alerts his mother, Sally Jackson, and take him to Camp Half-Blood. A Minotaur disseminates his mother, and he realizes he has to save her. He also realizes that his best friend is a satyr (part human- part goat). During the dinner time at camp, a monster summons and says that he must return the lightning bolt he stole, because that is the only way he will meet his mother. The monster also assures him that his mother isn’t dead, but just in the underworld, where Hades is. Percy is very aware that he hasn’t stolen any lightning bolts and that Zeus falsely accused him. He meets this girl named Annabeth. With only 10 days of time to return the bolt (or else a World War would occur) the three set out to find his mother, and find the lightning bolt. During his quest he faces dangerous monsters and fights them using his sword the camp activities director, Chiron gave him. It is a pen which turns into a sword. At the end, he realizes that one of the half blood, son of Hermes, Luke is the one who betrayed the camp and the one who stole the lightning bolt. Percy returns it and the world’s balance is restored.
