I have a book that I think you should read. The name of this book is called Percy Jackson and the Olympians the lightning thief by Rick Riordan. Percy Jackson is actually a whole series and I recommend them and think that they are great for middle schoolers and high schoolers. The lightning thief is about a boy named Percy Jackson who is the son of a god while he himself is half human and half god. In the book Percy finds out the he is half god and after he goes through some trouble has to go to a camp where demigods (half human half god) learn how to fight and stay alive. Zeus’s master bolt is stolen and Percy must find it. While monsters are out to kill him, Percy learns that all the Greek gods are actually real and that his dad is one of them. Percy has to find out which god is his father and stay alive against all odds and try to find the master bolt. This book is one of my favorite books of all time. I love this book because it is filled with lot of action and fighting. It has some very good examples of what true friendship looks like and what is to sacrifice everything for the people you love. There are lots of twists and turns in the book and it makes you want to keep reading. I think that in this book it has a lot of really good parts where it shows you that just because you think that you are small and weak you have the potential to become something far greater while defying what everyone thinks you are capable of. I recommend this book to anyone who likes Greek mythology and a good book where you don’t want to put it down until you finish it. So I hope you read this book Jerry but if you can’t find the time then take my word for it and recommend it to some middle schoolers.
