Teenager Percy Jackson is trying to be a good kid, but mythological monsters just keep chasing him! Turns out he is the demi-god son of Poseidon,
and he needs to find and return Zeus’s lightning bolt before there’s an all-out war of the gods. With Annabeth, daughter of Athena, and a satyr named Grover,
Percy sets off on an epic cross-country quest to save the world, save his mom, and maybe even meet his dad.
