| This blog will focus on one of my hobbies, reading. Or, more specifically, books. I love books. They can take you to a whole different world. So this website will be full of book reviews, polls, comments, and discussions about books. So, lets get started! The first book I'll show you guys is pretty popular. I'm sure a lot of you guys have heard of it. Its the first book of the Percy Jackson series. Its The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. The Lightning Thief is narrated by 12 year old Perseus ''Percy'' Jackson, a kid with ADHD and Dyslexia attending Yancy Academy, a school for troubled kids. Percy has been classified as a troubled kid because he has gotten expelled from every school he has ever attended. The story starts when Percy and his best friend, Grover Underwood, are on a field trip. Nancy Bobofit, a red haired kleptomaniac girl who bullies Percy and Grover, starts throwing sandwich chunks in Grover's hair. Percy is on probation,so if he does anything to Nancy, he'll get suspended. At the museum, Nancy dumps her lunch into Grover's lap. Percy shoves her into the water fountain, and is led inside the museum by his math teacher, Mrs. Dodds. Instead of getting punished, Mrs. Dodds turns into a monster and attacks him. Mr. Brunner, his Latin teacher, tosses him a pen that turns into a sword, which he uses to kill Mrs. Dodds and turn her into a pile of golden dust. The sword turns back into a pen and Percy discovers that no one remembers Mrs. Dodds, that everyone believes their math teacher is a blonde woman named Mrs. Kerr who Percy has never seen before. Then,he overhears a strange conversation between Grover and Mr. Brunner. But the year ends with Percy getting expelled, and him going on a vacation to the beach with his mom, Sally Jackson. He is happy he will get to escape his evil stepfather, Gabe Ugliano, for the weekend. But that night, Grover shows up without pants, revealing that he is goat from the waist down, at that he is a Satyr They are attacked by a Minotaur, whom Percy kills with his bare hands after he causes his mom to disappear in a flash of golden light. He then drags Grover over to a nearby farmhouse and passes out on the porch. He wakes up, and discovers he is in Camp Halfblood. Camp Halfblood is a camp for demigods, kids who are half mortal, half god. Percy discovers his missing father is a Greek God, one of the 12 Olympians who are currently in America. He discovers that he is a son of Poseidon, god of the sea and horses, one of Big Three gods who swore an oath not to have kids. But Zeus's master lightning bolt has been stolen, and since Gods can't steal each others symbols of power, he thinks that Poseidon used Percy to steal it. Poseidon wants an apology and Zeus wants his bolt back on the summer solstice, or else the two gods will to war. Its up to Percy, Grover, and Annabeth Chase, daughter of Athena, to find the missing bolt and clear Percy's name before its too late. |
