Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book One The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson & the Olympians #1) (Hardcover)
"The life of a demi-god is never easy, this is doubly true for a young half-blood who should not exist. Fathered by Poseidon, against a sacred oath, Perseus Jackson must travel across the U.S. to Hades, L.A., and return that which was stolen to prevent a deific war!"— Thomas W.
Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can't seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse-Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy's mom finds out, she knows it's time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he'll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends -- one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena -- Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.
