The Lighting Thief

Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. And that's the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he's angered a few of them. Zeus's master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect.
Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus's stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.
With cover art from the major motion picture, this first installment of Rick Riordan's best-selling series is a non-stop thrill-ride and a classic of mythic proportions.

I absolutely love this series. It was the series that got me to read and it happened quite by accident and in the end my brother was angry. However, he had to live with it and i couldn't live without it. Percy thrust into a Greek mythology world and you have a best-seller. The story flows and has nice scenes with Percy falling hundreds of feet while on fire, Grover and his flying shoes, and Annabeth riding the Ride of Love ( something along those lines) with Percy at an abandon amusement park.  In the end it will leave you hungry for more and it will only get better from there.
