The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Percy Jackson has ADHD, dyslexia and a knack for finding trouble. He sees things no one else sees—like ladies who turn into bats and pens that turn into swords. And then he finds out he might be the son of a Greek god and monsters of the Underworld are after him—well at least that explains a math teacher that turned into a bat.
The Lightning Thief is an interested story (though I preferred The Red Pyramid). I liked that Percy prefers to do his own thing—which sometimes gets him in trouble but also helps him survive. Christians may be bothered by prayers to the gods and burnt offerings.
I would recommend this to older middle grade readers or the young adult crowd.
