Review by Bryce Morris.
Out of all the books in the Percy Jackson series, this one is my favorite. This book is about a boy framed for stealing from a god. In an action-packed adventure, he is trying to clear his name as son of Poseidon, god of water. I think this book is trying to tell you that being special isn't what you always want.

Review by Abigail Cooper.
Middle School aged Percy Jackson discovers a camp called Camp Half-Blood where Percy learns that he is the son of Poseidon, the God of the Sea. Percy and his friends Annabeth and Grover go on a quest to resolve conflicts between the gods.

I really liked this book! It was full of action, adventure, violence, suspense, and includes lots of ancient Greek terminology through a modern setting. I highly recommend this book for anyone fifth grade and above because some parts of the book can be a little disturbing. This book is in a series and I highly recommend the rest of the series also! Rick Riordan is a great author!

Review by Ava Belle Holcombe.
I liked this book because the people in it had great adventures. If you read this book you should like adventures, drama, and a little bit of violence.
