Review: I had a lot of fun reading this second book of the Percy Jackson series, it was so much better then the movie. But I already knew that going into the book, because the book is always better then the movie.
Anyway… I just loved how much Percy and the gang ( even the people I don’t like) have grown up over the last year. I also thought this book was very creative with the creature and the details to them. As if you were there to see them for your self!
One of the best relationships in the book that really stuck out to me, and showed a greater depth to Percy was how he was with Tyson. Even though Percy was not the nicest when thinking of or talking about Tyson, he still cared for him as he should. And a lot of kids act and re-act to what Tyson was to him, in the real world too. So I thought that was a great element that Riordan shed some light on in this book. I am very much looking forward to reading more of the series soon!

Summary: Percy Jackson’s seventh-grade year has been surprisingly quiet. Not a single monster has set foot on his New York prep-school campus. But when an innocent game of dodgeball among Percy and his classmates turns into a death match against an ugly gang of cannibal giants, things get . . . well, ugly. And the unexpected arrival of Percy’s friend Annabeth brings more bad news: the magical borders that protect Camp Half-Blood have been poisoned by a mysterious enemy, and unless a cure is found, the only safe haven for demigods will be destroyed.
In this fresh, funny, and hugely anticipated follow up to The Lightning Thief, Percy and his friends must journey into the Sea of Monsters to save their beloved camp. But first, Percy will discover a stunning new secret about his family—one that makes him question whether being claimed as Poseidon’s son is an honor or simply a cruel joke.
