Overview

In response to an awful camp orientation video created by the god Apollo, Percy Jackson and other residents of Camp Half-Blood answer such questions as "What is this place?" and "Do I get to keep the T-shirt?" Newbies can check out the section on the Divine Cabins, read up on Magical Landmarks, and consult the chapter of Training Arenas. But Camp Half-Blood Confidential explores much more than just the buildings and grounds. It includes info that can only be learned from those who live there. For instance, campers do not always co-exist in peace and harmony. The camp is not run with superior efficiency. Prophecies do not flow forth with great regularity. Sprinkled throughout are stories from heroes who have called Camp Half-Blood home or just passed through on their way to places unknown. Chiron himself introduces the book with a brief history of training based on his millennia of experience. And, of course, there are divine words of wisdom from the god Apollo himself, because . . . well, because the demigod authors would prefer not to be struck down, thank you very much.

I would like to say that i understand you but i dont. We live in a world where diversity is frowned upon. Yes a young child reading this will get questions however, when has asking questions ever been a sin? The child is going to learn about it anyway soon and personally i find this a much better way than learning about it at school where people laugh and critisize gay, lesbian, pan, amd homo people. In this way, it is presented in a much softer light. You may not like gay people but every child has the right to decide what he/she believes is right. Reading this book will show that being gay isnt bad. Unlike hearing it from a person who thinks it is awful. That child is going to hear about it both ways, so i think think its better to hear the good side before the bad. Its easy to dislike something, but much harder to undislike it.

In trials of appollo i dont grt why Rick Riordan made Nivo di Angelo and Will solace a couple. That means they are gay which you really shouldnt put in a book that even a 9 year old can read because it would just make them ask questions.
