Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief is by Rick Riordan. It is a fiction book. The main character is a boy named Perseus “Percy” Jackson who is a young, brave, but troubled kid. Percy is sad that his mom is now dead, but when he gets to camp half blood he gets told that the god Hades, the god of death, has took her before she died. Later they find out that Percy is the son of the sea god, Poseidon. The main problem is that Zeus’s master bolt has been stolen Percy and his friends have to find it. I like this book because it is funny and the plot twist how Luke, Percy’s best friend betrayed him. -Brandon C.
