Chapter One Summary: Percy gets into trouble on a field trip. He puts Nancy (a bully), into a fountain. She then drops her lunch into Grover's lap. They get into a fight, but Mrs. Dodds intervenes. Ms. Dodds then takes Percy into the Roman and Greek center where Ms. Dodds turns into this monster who has glowing eyes and wings, with long fingers. It tries to kill Percy but Mr. Brunner tosses a pen to Percy which turns into a golden sword that Mr. Brunner uses at class when he dresses up. It cuts Ms. Dodds on the shoulder. Then she turns into yellow powder. Percy Jackson kills Mrs. Dodds in the Museum on a field trip with a pen that turns into a sword, because she turned into an evil hag with wings and talons and tried to kill him because she knew he was special (half-blood). Chapter 2: "Three Old Ladies Knit the Socks of Death" Percy and Grover saw three old ladies knitting socks by the side of the road, at a fruit stand, across a 4 lane highway, next to their broken down bus. Grover gets nervous that while Percy was looking at the ladies, they cut their yarn. He says, they never pass 6th grade, and he is a keeper, and is worried about Percy. On the bus Grover gave Percy his card just in case Percy needed it. By that time Percy had a lot of questions like: Why am I in danger?, Why did you give me your card?, What are you talking about?. Chapter 3 : "Grover Unexpectedly Loses His Pants" While in their little cabin they realize it is going to hurricane. When they were about to leave Grover was standing at the front door with "shag carpet pants on". They all get in the car and Percy's mom floors it. Then Percy realizes that Grover is half goat (satyr). Percy gets no answers as to what they are speeding away from. After a while Grover says they are speeding away from the "Lord of the dead and his bloodthirstiest minions". As they took a turn they got hit by a lightning bolt and slid off the road into the ditch, getting a slight view at the monster chasing them. Well Percy was in the car Percy's mom said "get out of the car and go to the tree" but Percy said "I'm not leaving you two behind" so Grover and Sally came. Chapter 4: "My Mother Teaches Me Bullfighting" Percy was on his way to the summer camp and it was raining, and his mom knew that there was a bulky bull chasing him trying to kill him them a lightning bolt struck the car and the car was in a ditch. Grover was hurt and he was saying "Food" (guess he was hungry). the bull grabbed sally and killed her. Then Percy pulled the horn of the bull off with all his strength and killed him. Percy carried Grover to the camp and blacked out. He later woke up to a ladies voice saying, "Hes the one." Chapter 5: "I Play Pinochle with a horse" Percy gets treated to some TLC and "passes" the test by drinking ambrosia, otherwise know as nectar of the gods. If he were merely a mortal, it would have killed him, but since he was a half-blood, it healed him instead. He is introduced to a few new characters, Mr. D, Chiron, Annabeth, and many other members of Camp Half-Blood. He finds out Mr. Brunner is actually a centaur named Chiron. Mr. D is in charge of Camp Half-Blood, but really is there because he is being punished by Zeus for a past misdeed. Chapter 6: "I Become Supreme Ruler of the Bathroom" Percy gets to know the Camp and fellow campers. He immediately gets picked on by Clarisse, a member of the Ares family. They get into it and Clarisse whoops on him until she tries to give him a swirly, then to her astonishment, she gets totally soaked by a toilet explosion. The only person not wet was Percy. Chapter 7: "My Dinner Goes Up in Smoke" The campers sit down to dinner and give the best part of it to the fire as an offering to the gods. Percy really wishes that he could figure out who his dad is. There is an image that is revealed which pretty much settles who his father is. Chapter 8:" We Capture a Flag" Percy is on Annabeths team for capture a flag and clarrise gets all "I'm gonna kill you!" and Percy does a cool move and breaks her spear so Luke runs in and gets the flag but then Percy gets attacked by a hell hound and Chiron jumps in and saves the day and Percy's team wins. Percy was a bit mad that Annabeth used him as bait to get Clarisse out of position so her team could win, but gets over it. Chapter 9:"I am Offered a Quest" Percy Jackson gets to go on a quest. He also has Annabeth and Grover too. Percy got sad because Annabeth and Grover got things from their dad's but not Percy. Chiron, (Mr. Brunner) pulled Percy off to the side and told him that his father knows were you are. Chiron also gave him a pen that turned in to a golden sword. Chiron said that it's from his father. Chiron told Percy that if it goes away it takes a couple of seconds for it to return to your pocket. They get a ride from Chiron's driver that Chiron asked to do it. Chapter 10:" I Ruin a Perfectly Good Bus" On their trip out west they are riding on a bus, when Percy realizes that Mrs. Dodds and two other ladies who are harpies are also on it. Percy dons Annabeth's invisibility cap, but the harpies make too much damage and the bus is pretty much totaled. Percy fights them off, but now they are on the run. This event is broadcast over the news, so now people think Percy is a terrorist.

He got found by a lady that was not human. He got to the top then he jumped in to the water for about an hour, then came out.

Annabeth and Grover sneak out of the arch that is broken, people are saying that a boy of Percy's description and he has to sneak out of there it is very exciting. Chapter 15: "A God Buys us Cheeseburgers" Ares comes to a diner in Denver and tells the kids that he has a deal for them. If they get his shield from a nearby water park, then he'll tell Percy about his Mom. The kids go to the water park, and they go into the pool to get the shield from a boat. Cupid statues start to come alive and shoot arrows that turn into a metal net. Percy uses his power to control water and saves them. It was a trap to catch Ares & Aphrodite messin' around. The kids were glad to have escaped without being put on Olympus TV. Chapter 16: " We Take a Zebra to Vegas" The kids hop into the back of a semi-trailer of an animal rescue organization. It turns out all to be a farce, the animals are mistreated and miserable. Percy, Grover, and Annabeth hear their stories and help them, know that an evil is unacceptable.

Chapter 20: "I Battle My Jerk Relative" They had just returned from the underworld when they ran into Ares. They had a long discussion about how Percy was tricked and that Ares stole the Master Bolt and Helm. It soon turned into an argument. They were wildly taunting each other and soon, Percy uncapped his sword and Ares was just as fast. They engaged in dreadful battle and were soon getting tired. The cops came. The officer told them to drop their weapons but Ares sizzled their cars into a pulp. They kept fighting when Percy went into the surf. He slammed Ares with a massive amount of water. He was whitewashed and then he was slashed in the heel by Percy's sword. A large amount of darkness came and time froze and color disappeared. Ares was now immortal and had a curse on Percy so that whenever he fought he would be bad. He was congratulated by Grover and Annabeth. Percy's mother is taken by the Minotaur to Hades. He also is being accused of stealing Zeus's' lightning bolt. So he goes to the underworld to retrieve his mother and bolt from Hades, but Hades doesn't have it. Hades is missing his realm of darkness. Ares has it, is defeated by Percy, and gives him the realm. So Percy gets his mother back, and Luke turns out to have been the lightning thief and a traitor. A kid named Percy Jackson leads no normal life. After his teacher tries to kill him, He learns his dad is Poseiden and all those Greek myths are real. Then he is faced with a huge problem. Someone stole Zeus's lightning bolt, the most powerful weapon in history, and everyone thinks it was him!!! Now, faced with an epic quest he must set out with his friends to find the bolt and prevent the world from falling into chaos! Trouble-prone Percy Jackson is having problems in high school - but that's the least of his challenges. It's the 21st century, but the gods of Mount Olympus seem to have walked out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology texts and into his life. Percy has learned that his real father is Poseidon, god of the sea, which means Percy is a demigod - half human, half god. At the same time, the powerful gods on Olympus are feuding, which could launch a war enveloping our entire planet. Book Summary Winner of the 2007 BookBrowse Ruby Award. It's just a small story really, about among other things: a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. . . . Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak's groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist - books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement before he is marched to Dachau. This is an unforgettable story about the ability of books to feed the soul. Somebody stole Zeus' strongest thunderbolt and Percy Jackson must find it before fights in Olympus start. The 5 book series of Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan, for me, is a must read. It is about a boy named Percy Jackson who is dyslexic and has ADHD, nothing abnormal about this right? What about the fact that he is a half-blood? His is one of the many children of Poseidon, the God of the Waters. In the first book (The Lightning Thief) Percy goes on a quest with his friend Annabelle and his best friend, a satyr named Grover. The quest is to retrieve the Lightning Bolt that Zeus, another God stole. I recommend this book to anybody who likes fantasy, adventure, exciting, unpredictable and/or action packed books. The 1st book I believe is the shortest. The books range from 200-350 pages (my estimate). I hope anyone who takes on my recommendation enjoys this book as much as I did! the basic plot would be that Percy, Annabeth, and Grover go on a quest to find the stolen lightning bolt and return it to Zeus before the summer solstice Here's the summary: (WARNING: MIGHT CONTAIN SPOILERS!) *more like a essay by the way :-) Percy goes to a field trip with his Latin teacher called Mr. Brunner. Unfortunately, Percy gets attacked by his pre-algebra techer (Mrs. Dodds) which turns out to be one of the Furies (also known as the Kindly Ones). Once he gets attacked, he gets kicked out of Yancy Academy leaving his best friend, Grover, behind. While going back to his house with Grover at the bus, the bus breaks down. He gets out only to find the Fates determing Percy's destiny. When he gets home, (ditching Grover who asked him to go home with him after seeing the Fates) his mom takes him to a vacation at Montauk and again, unfortunately, a hurricane spoils his trip and mysteriously meets Grover. Percy's mom talks about what summer camp he has to go to. They get attacked by the Minotaur while driving to Percy's summer camp. He unfortunately loses his mom by the Minotaur and later kills it. The summer camp turns out to be Camp Half-Blood. He falls unconscious and later found getting taken care of a girl named Annabeth. She talks about how Percy is related to a prophecy. Mr. Brunner was suprisingly was also at this camp. He explains how the Greek gods, titans, monsters, heroes were real. He explains how Percy has a Greek god as a father. After a few days of training and the mysterious question of who is Percy's godly parent, it turns out to be Poseidon, god of the Sea. Since he was one of "The Big Three" he was treated with great care since most monsters would chase after him because the three gods (sons of Kronos: Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades) made a solemn vow to the River Styx not to give birth to any hero since they were dangerous after the WWII. Since both Zeus and Poseidon broke the oath, Hades gets angry and sends his bloodthirstiest monsters to attack the heroes. Chiron thinks camp is not safe and sends Percy to a quest: To receive the stolen master bolt of Zeus and give it back before the summer solstice. He receives the prophecy from the Spirit of Delphi which says: You shall go west, and face the god that turned, You shall find what was stolen, and see it safely returned, You shall be betrayed by one who calls you a friend, And you shall fail to save what matters most in the end. Later, Percy accepts the quest, facing the fact that he'll be betrayed by a friend and fail to do what matters at the end.... This is what is on the back of The Lightning Thief book: " Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school . . . again . And that's the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he's angered a few of them. Zeus's master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus's stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves."

His mother is killed, but Percy defeats the Minotaur. He and his friend arrive at camp Half-Blood, a camp for children of the 12 Olympian gods. Here, Percy meets Annabeth, a daughter of Athena, and Luke, a son of Hermes. Percy is soon revealed to be a son of Poseidon. He learns that Zeus's master lightning bolt was stolen, and that Percy is the prime suspect, and that if the bolt is not returned before the Summer Solstice, there will be a war among the gods.
