My 10-year old loves this!

My 13 and 10 year olds think this book is awesome! I personally have not read it but heard snippets. The book is based on Greek mythology, which makes for an easy and enjoyable way to learn about it. The plot has lots of twists and Percy Jackson makes it seem very funny.

Too much violence
