Percy Jackson The Sea of Monsters
Rick Riordan by Anders Johnston
Percy has a Good Life So Far
Percy is a half-blood which means he is half god and half human. He's made it to the last day of school without any monsters bursting through the school doors trying to kill him. That's until the bronze dodge ball beasts come into his school and he realizes his friend, Tyson, is a half-blood too. But, he's also a cyclops.
The character, Thaila, dies on a hill and then becomes a tree. The tree is later poisoned so Percy, Annabeth, Grover and Tyson set out to find the golden fleece to save the tree, but first they have to go through the Sea of Monsters!
