Percy Jackson and the Olympians

This book is aimed for tweens and older. The story takes place in present day New York. Reminds me a lot of Harry Potter. The differences are: instead of being a wizard, Percy Jackson is a Demigod, which Greek God is his parent? You have to read it to find out. And instead of Hogwarts, there's Camp Half-blood. And instead of Prof. Dumbledore, there's a centaur. And instead of Hermione, there's Annabeth, the child of Athena. Well, you get the drift. I still enjoyed the story immensely. I also liked the author's humor. A lot of dry humor and sarcasm.

There are five books in this series. There is also a movie coming out next year. I can't wait!

All in all, I give this book four stars.

I suck at book reviews.

Yeah, the front cover looks like from one of the Harry Potter books. Hmmm, I really would love to read that book. Thanks for the heads up.
