Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
Aren’t myths and legends just that? Nope, not for Percy. Not anymore. In Rick Riordan’s legendary story, everyday teenager Percy Jackson learns he’s anything but when he discovers that he is actually the son of the Greek god Poseidon – the God of the Sea. Percy soon finds himself swapping basketballs and skateboards for swords and monsters. In the first book of the series, Zeus, God of the Sky, accuses his nephew of stealing his lightning bolt. Percy, with the help of his friends, must, quite literally, go to hell and back to clear his name - before it’s too late!
