Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief - Kepler's Staff Review

Percy Jackson, the narrator of this action-packed page-turner is struggling through his sixth private school for troubled youth in six years. But he doesn't continue at this school for long once he accidentally vaporizes one of his teachers! This and a little trouble with a stampeding Minotaur motivate him to escapes to Camp Half-Blood where he learns that he's a demigod - the son of Poseidon and a mortal mother!!
 
Percy is thrust into the middle of a battle between Poseidon and Zeus over a stolen lightning bolt, and it seems it's up to him to find the bolt or civilization will face ruin.
 
 Whew, this is a fast-paced, tense, yet funny book full of close calls and monsters, where the entrance to Hades is through Los Angeles! 

 Reviewed By Karen Z.
