The Lightning Thief

Did you ever want to learn about Greek Mythology without being bored?  If so, this is the book for you!  Percy Jackson, whose ADHD and dyslexia have the most interesting cause, has an amazing adventure, which would have been fun to read on its own, but the fact that the adventure is tied to all sorts of the BIG stories in mythology makes it extra interesting.  Like lots of adventure stories, this one talks about learning about yourself and the importance of friendship, but this is not your run of the mill adventure.  After this book I am fascinated by Greek Mythology.  I'm sure this is a series that I will keep reading!
