The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan is an entertaining and engaging read. I had a late start to reading this series. I'd heard a lot about it, but I was hesitant to read it. Percy Jackson, the main character, is a brave, cunning teenager. In the real world he struggles with regular problems, like dyslexia and and not having many friends, but once he reaches Camp Half-Blood, his life changes. His new problems are battling with demons, staying on the good side of Ares, and keeping himself alive. This series is said to be a lot like the Harry Potter series, but I disagree. The similarities are minimal - Percy is a half-blood and he has two best friends, a girl and a boy, just like Harry. The Lightning Thief is the story of a quest. Percy has leave the safety of camp and discover the world and himself.
