Annotation:
Greek mythology, ADHD, and perilous adventures are just a few of the ingredients in this fast-paced middle-grade novel about 12-year-old half-blood (part human, part god) Percy Jackson. A longtime sufferer of ADHD, Percy discovers that these are actually side effects from his Olympian heritage, and after being expelled from boarding school, he is sent to a demigod haven, Camp Half Blood. Soon, he's wrongly accused of stealing Zeus's sacred thunder bolt, and a cross-country hunt for the real perpetrator ensues, with Annabeth, the daughter of Athena, and Grover, a satyr, in tow. A New York Times Notable Book of 2005.

Praise

"Riordan's fast-paced adventure is fresh, dangerous, and funny. Percy is an appealing, but reluctant hero, the modernized gods are hilarious, and the parallels to Harry Potter are frequent and obvious. " - Chris Sherman 09/15/2005

"The sardonic tone of the narrator's voice lends a refreshing air of realism to this riotously paced quest tale of heroism that questions the realities of our world, family, friendship and loyalty." 06/15/2005

"[P]erfectly paced, with electrifying moments chasing each other like heartbeats, and mysteries opening out in sequence. The action never feels gratuitous; it draws its depth from the myth at its source." - Polly Shulman 11/13/2005
