What is the first page of Percy Jackson?

The first page of the lightning thief says:



Look, I didn't want to be a half - blood.

If you're reading this because you think you might be

one, my advice is: close this book right now. Believe what-

ever lie your mom or dad told you about your birth and try

to lead a normal life.

Being a half - blood is dangerous. It's scary. Most of the

time, it gets you killed in painful, nasty ways.

If your a normal kid, reading this because you think

its fiction, great. Read on. I envy you for being able to

believe that none of this ever happened.

But if recognize yourself in these pages- if you feel

something stirring inside -stop reading immediately. You

might be one of us. And once you know that, its only a mat-

ter of time before they send it too, and they'll come for you.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

My name is Percy Jackson.

I'm twelve years old. Until a few months ago, I was a

boarding student at Yancy Academy, a private school for

troubled kids in upstate New York.

Am I a troubled kid?

Yeah. You could say that."
