The Lightning Thief - Rick Riordan Percy Jackson has always known there was something different about him and this difference wasn't exactly a good thing. Soon he finds out what sets him apart from the other kids in his class. This is when the mayhem begins and Percy's life is never the same.

I thought this book was really creative and well done. When I started reading I thought the writing was too juvenile (yes, I know it's a YA book, but still). As I became more comfortable the writing didn't bother me as much and I fell right into the story.
