Featured book of the week: The Lightning Thief – Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school…again, but that’s the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy’s Greek mythology textbook and into his life. Worse, he’s angered a few of them.

Zeus’s master lightning bolt stolen and Percy the prime suspect. To succeed in his quest to clear his name, Percy will have to do more than catching the actual thief. He must come to terms with that father who abandoned him and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.
