Percy Jackson The Titans Curse Book Review

Percy is a half mortal half human he lives in camp half-blood where a lot of kids like himself go there. Percy is the son of Poseidon and is a hero at camp half-blood. He and three other friends are on the hunt to save a Goddess. I recommend this book to any kids 12 and up.
age 15+
Very good book. Too much violence and death, as well as sadness. A girl goes missing and another one dies, leaving her brother in grief. Mild cursing with words like heck, stupid, idiot, darn, a joke revolving around the word damn, and a boy who tells someone to shove something up their (rest was cut off). A mention of Thalia's mom being a heavy drinker that died drunk driving, and an activities director at camp forgets not to offer the underage campers wine.

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
