Well, I’m pretty sure my life would’ve been different if I’d just read this when I was 12!
Percy Jackson is a bad-ass demigod, son of Poseidon. Of course, he doesn’t know this at first until monsters start terrorizing him. He then learns about his true identity when he arrives at Camp Half-Blood where his quests begin.
I really enjoyed the first book and I can’t believe I’m only reading the series now that I’m 23! Ugh! And I can’t believe I loved the movie.
