The lightning thief is a popular middle school book. It is written by Rick Riordon. This book is about Percy Jackson and is based on mythology. Many who had read this book go and start reading the series called “Hero’s of olympus”, which is about greek gods and goddesses in the modern times. This book is easy to read and very exciting.I interviewed a middle school student to see what she thought about this book.Kalee k. said “It is action-packed and historically accurate,also very exciting”. Jesus h. said,”it’s very entertaining, and also its was nice how they used the myths in the story”. Many read this book and enjoyed it. If you haven’t read this book yet, maybe you should.
