Courtney asked Rick Riordan:

Hi Rick, as an elementary school teacher I’ve always loved how diverse the characters in your novel are – ethnicity, gender, and learning differences. I especially love that through Percy readers are able to see how students with dyslexia and/or ADHD think differently and creatively. My question is, will any characters in The Sword of Summer have learning differences?

Rick Riordan Hmm, learning differences in Magnus Chae -- I guess it would depend on how you define it. I would say yes.
