Katie | 14 comments In the beginning Percy Jackson was a trouble maker. He was a trouble maker because always was getting kicked out of schools and being disrespectful. Now he is brave because his mother was taken and he wanted to get her back. He would do anything for her. He is going on a journey to find her. Now, he has to choose between his mom or his friends..........

Megan Hawro | 14 comments Percy Jackson started out as a shy weak kid and was confused. but he changed when his teacher was a guy with a horse body. Percy had a quest to find Zeus's lighting bolt and on his quest he tried to find his mother because a centaur turned her into dust. Later on Percy became braver because he tried his best to find his mother.

Mackenzie | 16 comments Percy Jackson wasn't that strong until his teacher turned into a monster. Percy fighted the monster and is know brave. When he goes on quests he fights monsters. He has more confidence because of his teacher turning into a monster.

Brock | 12 comments percy Jackson was a kid that did not rally talk to people a hated his stepdad. His stepdad really stinks because he eats chetos and does not take a bath. know almost at the end he is not shy at all and he fights monsters and stuff and talks to three headed dogs I really wish I could talk to my dog but my dog is not three headed.

Adrianna (AdriannaWilliams) | 3 comments Percy was rather shy, and thought he was just a normal kid, Until he fought Mrs. Dodds, and weird things started happening. He was careless in many ways, and he had no idea he was a Semi-god until he was brought into the camp. He also seemed to be a bit scared, telling by the way he was at the beginning, being picked on and bullied like that. Personally, all-in-all, he changed a lot. I love how it changes slowly, but when you look back, it's like a real person: Changing, Slowly but surely. It's very in-depth and clever, I love how the author does it.

Emily | 10 comments Percy Jackson was a weak and shy kid. But now he is strong and mighty kid because, he has been battling monsters and worst of all gods. but throughout Percy's adventures he has won them all, and that is why I think he has changed just from the new things he has accomplished.

Macy | 13 comments In the beginning of the book Percy was a scared and shy. He was a kid with a disability not being able to read English words but, throughout the book Percy recognizes his own talents like when they were in Missouri Percy found out that he could breath under water. But that is only one of Percy`s many talents.
