This book is about the demigod (half human half god) Percy Jackson and his adventure to retrieve the stolen lighting bolt. The story begins with an introduction of Percy Jackson and his life at his home in New York City. Percy is not aware of hit situation in fact his only clue to his destiny he believes is dyslexia but actually he is just able to read an Ancient Greek language.

Riley.Mccloud After getting a first encounter with a monster who believes he stole the lighting bolt of Zeus, Grover (Percys half goat friend) leads him to a safe place called “Camp Half Blood” where he learns important training and the history behind who he is. At the camp he is threatened by a devil fire monster who is actually hades who says that he has her mother and that if he doesn‘t give him the lightning bolt his mother will die. 2y
Riley.Mccloud So naturally he believes he can reason with a god of the under world because he doesn‘t have the actually lighting bolt. Grover and his new female companion, daughter to the god of war, Annabeth. They than go on a quest but in order to actually get back from hades safe they need orbs that help them travel wherever they think about. So they go on there quest to a variation of places 2y
Riley.Mccloud looking for the orbs whilst monsters are on the hunt for zeus‘s Bolt that they believe Percy has. They get the orbs, kick monster butt, and then get to hades where Percy finds out he was setup because he actually does have the bolt, an evil camp member Luke put it in his shield to cause war amongst the gods. they forgot to do simple math so they don‘t have enough orbs to take everyone and someone has to stay behind, 2y

Riley.Mccloud Grover decides it is going to be him and they go home and eventually return the bolt to the gods and the gods are no longer mad at each other. Percy also gets to meet his dad Poseidon for the first time and everything turns out just fine. The books point of view is first person told from the perspective of Percy Jackson, 2y
Riley.Mccloud the author shows that it is in first person by using words such as “I” or “We”. If you like books that are intense interesting and very creative to the end this book is the book for you. 2y

This biography illustrated by Jeff Rud is a great way to read about the childhood of NBA or WNBA superstars and how they got to be the phenomenal basketball players that they are. In this book you read about ten different basketball players who mastered in “Skywalking“ on the court. If you like books about basketball athletes with impressive verticals and work ethic the this is the book for you to read.

Riley.Mccloud The motif of this book is hard work and dedication. Nothing was given to these players they had to work to get to where they got. Like Allen Iverson coming out of jail and working hard to become an NBA sensation or “ Canadian Steve Nash beating the odds to become a pro hoops star“. All of these players have intriguing stories and I encourage you to read about them in Skywalking. 2y
MissYaremcio Nice work Riley! It sounds like an awesome book! 6/6 2y
