The Trials of Apollo: The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan

After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disoriented, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus’s favor.

But Apollo has many enemies—gods, monsters, and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go . . . an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood. [chapter book, ages 8 and up]

  15. Linda Mitchell

    I’m a middle school librarian….we canNOT keep these books on the shelves and just today I made up a re-order for more books because they are so well loved … that some are in tatters. I adore the series. Percy is my favorite character because he pulls so many boys and girls into reading that wouldn’t otherwise do so. I <3 Percy Jackson!

    • Hi Linda,
      I’m so glad that Percy Jackson gets kids reading! It certainly worked for my son. His friends were reading Percy Jackson in 1st grade which I thought was too young. I wanted him to enjoy early chapter books and even picture books and easy readers. So my son borrowed a copy of Percy Jackson from a friend at school and just started reading it on his own. πŸ™‚ Now we read all his books; I usually pre-order them and my son screams with excitement when they arrive. It’s such a great mix of adventure, diversity, and humor. What’s not to love?
