The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

Percy Jackson thinks that he is an ordinary kid. He couldn't be further from the truth. Truth is he's a demigod. And not just any demigod either. Turns out he's the son of one of the Big Three - Poseidon in fact. Also turns out that Zeus is out to get him because the "King of the Gods" thinks the Percy stole his precious Master Bolt. To make matters worse, Percy's mom has been kidnapped by Hades.

Now Percy and his friends, Grover and Annabeth, must travel across the country to confront Hades and they meet some interesting people along the way. Will Percy find the Master Bolt and save his mom before the deadline? Will they figure out who is behind the deadly plot stirring among the gods? And most importantly will Percy ever find out the prophecy that might explain his fate?

Rick Riordan's first Percy Jackson novel is exciting for readers of all ages. Those interested in modern Greek mythology will have a fun time reading Percy's adventure. Percy is a fun character who is easy to relate to. Readers will fall in love with Percy and his gang of friends and will want to read the rest of the books right away.
