The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series #1)

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series #1) - It was a tad too predictable for my taste, but I'm sure that this makes a nice read for kids who don't know that much about Greek mythology yet. Honestly though, for kids who supposedly see more than your usual mortal these demi-gods took quite some time to figure out things that should have been fairly obvious from the very beginning. The "prophecy" was rather straightforward, too.I'll definitely read the next book, because I'm in the mood for YA literature right now...must be the heat. Cannot stomach anything but light reading right now. :)
