When I get to complain about copyright and originality at Barnes and Noble, you know it’s a good day.
The Lightning Thief (Book One of Percy Jackson and the Olympians)
In case you haven’t read this book, I’ll sum it up as briefly as possible. Percy Jackson is an eleven-twelve year old boy who finds out he’s a demigod (half Greek god, half human) and learns to use his powers while fighting gods and monsters. Oh, and by the way, he goes to a summer camp. For these demigods.
Now what did I see in the book store?
Here’s an excerpt from the author’s summary on her website, http://www.teralynnchilds.com/books/omg.htm
Phoebe’s stuck on a secret island in the Aegean attending the super-exclusive Academy, where her new stepfather is the headmaster and the kids are anything but your average students—they are descendants of the Greek gods, super powers included. That’s right, Greek gods are no myth! If Phoebe thought high school was hard, she knows this is going to be mortal misery.
