The lightning thief (#1 Percy Jackson)

Review by Marlon Stanard on September 17, 2019

This book is about how an ordinary Manhattan boy finds out he is a demigod of Poseidon the Greek god. He goes to a camp named Camp Half-Blood and starts his first quest. Meanwhile the other gods think he has stolen Zeus' lightning bolt, the most dangerous weapon of all time.

I really liked this book because of all of Percy Jackson's amazing powers.

I would recommend this to third through ninth graders.
