What is all the fuss about with this new movie The Lightning Thief that's coming out on February 12? If you want to know more about the book it's based on, please read on:
Percy Jackson is dyslexic, has ADHD, and enough behavioral problems that he has been kicked out of six schools in six years. His last removal was particularly interesting; he transformed his pre-algebra teacher to dust when she turned into a monster and tried to kill him.
But he’s the only one who remembers it, and he soon finds out why: he isn’t totally human, but a half-blood, son of the Sea God Poseidon. In this novel, the Greek Gods do still exist and cause all kinds of mischief in the world. Their half-blood children are sent to a summer camp on Long Island called Camp Half-Blood where they learn to fight the monsters that plague them in the real world.
