My 7 year old is an avid reader and I was looking for a challenge for him. He moved a bit slowly through the book, but was focused and fascinated the entire way through. When he finished, I read it and can say it was better than the movie by a long shot. And with the Target Red Card, our 5% discount and free shipping make shopping online better than ever.

This book is amazing. It follows a demigod, Percy Jackson. When he discovers what he is and that is mom was taken, he decides to go on a quest. With some new friends at his side, will he ever get his mom back? Can he return the master bolt to Zeus and the helm of darkness to Hades? The suspense leads you through unlikely friendship and betrayal. Can he make it by the summer solstice? Can he make it out alive? The reason why I liked this book so much is because it is always has new twists in the story. You never know what will happen next (even if you have seen the movie)! It takes you on a roller coaster of danger and curiosity. In my opinion, this is a must read! :)

The Lightning Thief, an exciting start to the Percy Jackson Trilogy

If you love the Harry Potter series then this is a book for you. Percy Jackson is the main character he thinks that he is dyslexic and suffering from ADHD. He has been kicked out from school to school because unexpected things keep happening to him. Little does he know he's a "Half-Blood" which is the offspring of a powerful Greek God and a mortal. There is a special place for these special people, "Camp Half-blood" where they learn how to control their powers. But Percy's mother has been captured and he has been accused of stealing Zeus's lightning bolt, the most powerful weapon in the world. He is now on a race against time to save his mother. He must prove that he did not steal the lightning bolt before the summer solstice or there will be a war against the gods that will tear the world to pieces! This is a fast paced book with plenty of exciting twists and turns to keep the reader's interest. The different characters from Greek mythology all have unique powers and you will learn a lot about them. It makes you want to learn more about this subject. I think teenage boys will enjoy this book the most, but my sister loved it too. If you're looking for a fun read, pick up a copy today!
