Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief
Percy Jackson has a tough time at school; no matter how hard he tries, trouble always seems to find him. Turns out this is because he’s a demigod, son of the Olympian Poseidon. But when he leaves his regular school behind for Camp Half-Blood, a training ground for young demigods, he learns to harness his powers and meets friends who can help him in his mission to stop a feud among the gods from creating war on earth, and rescue his mother from Hades’ underworld. Riordan wrote these stories for his son who, like Percy, has dyslexia and ADHD, and found school a bit tricky.
