The Lightning Thief
by Rick Riordan is one of the best books one will ever read! It’s filled with action packed Greek battles, and epic adventurous journey across the U.S. in order for Percy Jackson to retrieve the missing master bolt (a powerful weapon used by Zeus himself) before the winter solstice and all chaos breaks loose.
You would like this book if you like… Greek mythology, epic journeys, and adventure.

Image from RRHS Catalog

Marian Hale has created such vibrant characters and an engaging plot sequence that it makes you feel like you’re part of Galveston, Texas. The book lets you follow the Braeden family with their issues, struggles, and sorrow. Once the 1900 hurricane hits Galveston, you will feel yourself gasping for air. You would like this book if you like… books about survival.
