This book is about a boy, Percy Jackson, and his crippled friend Grover, who is actually a satyr (half goat, half man). They go on an adventure with their also-crippled Latin teacher, Mr. Brunner, who is not actually a Latin teacher – he teaches demigods to defend themselves from monsters that will try to kill them, and he isn’t crippled because he can’t walk, but because he is a centaur (half horse, half man).
I really love this book because I usually wonder what it would be like to live back when there were Greek animals, gods, demigods, and people, and this story just gives me a better understanding of what it was like back then. If I never read this book, I would have never watched the movie and written this rave! Book 1 of the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. [SpaceUnicorn1234]
