Percy Jackson and the Lighning Thief is definitely a great book for kids and teens. My friend was really in to the series and when she talked about Greek Mythology I had no clue what she was saying. So I decided to give it a try and Im hooked. The whole series is amazing and each book get better and better. By the time you have finished the whole series youll know everything about greek and roman gods. I find all the character really interesting and think all the secrecy in the plot really make this book unique. I would recommend this book for 11 and over because young kids might get confused with the plot.
I personally was really upset when I finished the Percy Jackson serious untill I found out about the Heroes of Olympus books which has the same characters as Percy Jackson but it is even better.
Definitely try this book if you are in to action, mystery and adventure but like a bit of romance as well.
