The Lightning Thief, book one in the Percy Jackson and The Olympians series, is an amazing book by Rick Riordan. It’s about a 12 year old boy, Percy Jackson, who has Dyslexia. This makes his life hard for him at school, and he gets in trouble at every school he moves to. Although he doesn’t like to admit it, strange things have been happening at his schools. Strange teachers, weird students, and confusing situations keep popping up, no matter what school he enters.

One of the strangest, most recent things that has happened to him was on a field trip. Nancy Bobofit, the most annoying girl in his school, got in a fight with him and was magically thrown into the water. Mrs. Dodds, the math teacher, suddenly turns into a giant monster. Percy has also overheard interesting conversations outside of one of the classrooms between Mr. Brunner, his favorite teacher, and his best friend, Grover.

This book is one of my favorites because I love the way it’s written. I love the characters and the entire plot. I rate this book five stars because it is so interesting to read and it kept me rooting for the characters from start to finish. If you are a person who loves action, adventure, and all things fantasy, you will love this book and the rest of the awesome series.
