Percy Jackson- The Lightning Thief
By Rick Riordan
This 375 page book will take you through Heaven and the Underworld and back in this adventurous tale!
Percy Jackson has got kicked out of school numerous times because something crazy always happens in his presence, but he does not know why. He is impaired with dyslexia and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder. He is led by Grover to an unusual summer camp called Camp Halfblood. Here he finds out that his long lost father is the lord of the seas, Poseidon. Now he is on a quest to retrieve the sky god Zeus's symbol of power the master lightning bolt. He gets the help from his best friend Grover, who Percy figures to be a satyr-half goat, half human. He also gets help from Annabeth, the daughter of the goddess of wisdom, Athena. Together they will travel to the Underworld to find the thief of the master bolt. Will they succeed on their quest? Read on to find out!
This is a scene in the book when he goes on a field trip and figures out that his math teacher Mrs.Dodds is a beast called a fury, and Percy slays the beast with the sword that his teacher gave him. This is the moment he discovers his ancient Greek counterparts, the beginning of the journey.
Even though he has ADHD and dyslexia, Percy doesn't stop being himself. Despite having a bunch of people making fun of him for getting kicked out of school so much, he doesn't care what they say. This can apply to many people. A lot of people that get discriminated and are sad can be inspired by Percy Jackson. This applies to me as well. Sometimes I get discriminated because I can't play a certain sport or whatever. After reading the book, I put the negative thoughts behind me and thought about what I can do better than the other person. This book helped me realize that I don't have to care about what other people thought of me. Now, I always be myself and I don't even care about haters.
