Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief, by Rick Riordan
This is a book that if you are into Hercules, Jason, or any other greek stuff read THIS.
I liked the way the author told you what was happening in the book, for example: The Naiads came out from the woods, I mean the literally came straight from the woods, I saw one melt out of a maple tree! Also, I learnt about 5 new greek gods! Percy was the son of Poseidon, so he could breathe underwater, and in water he heals his wounds, and could control the waves! Percy is a strong character. This book in the series is where Zeus’s master lightning bolt has been stolen!!!
