Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan
A different story! Something not related to vampires. So instead we have the Greek Gods and interesting theology.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians! THE LIGHTENING THIEF!!
I have watched the movie for this so the whole time reading I've been comparing to that. There's a couple major differences. For example Percy is 12! And in grade 6. Oh and he doesn't fall in love with Annabeth.
It's a fascinating tale, but a little hard to get into at first. I don't know much about the Greek Gods that made things difficult when trying to figure out what the author meant.
Annabeth, mother is fascinating to me. Mostly because I had never heard of her. There's some interesting web-pages one her. Wikipedia for one, and then there's this one on all the Goddess, and another one on just Athena. Pretty too, but I am assume all Goddess' are pretty beautiful. Now for book 2
