Jason has a problem. He doesn't remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. Apparently she's his girlfriend Piper, his best friend is a kid named Leo, and they're all students in the Wilderness School, a boarding school for "bad kids." What he did to end up here, Jason has no ideaexcept that everything seems very wrong.
Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, and her vivid nightmares reveal that he's in terrible danger. Now her boyfriend doesn't recognize her, and when a freak storm and strange creatures attack during a school field trip, she, Jason, and Leo are whisked away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood. What is going on?
Leo has a way with tools. His new cabin at Camp Half-Blood is filled with them. Seriously, the place beats Wilderness School hands down, with its weapons training, monsters, and fine-looking girls. What's troubling is the curse everyone keeps talking about, and that a camper's gone missing. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist they are allincluding Leorelated to a god.

I love this
My 12-year-old grandson requested this set of Rick Riordan's books for Christmas. He has already read them all and thoroughly enjoyed them. As a retired high school librarian, I would like to say that I am so pleased to see so many great books being written that capture the interest of boys, who have been a difficult group to steer to reading since nothing much was aimed at their interests.
This book is amazing awesome and TOTALLY EPIC!! Great start to the Heroes of Olympus series!!!
I didn't finish reading it but I like it !?
