Demi-god Percy Jackson and his friends must journey into the Sea of Monsters to save their camp. But first Percy will discover a secret that makes him wonder whether being claimed as Poseidon's son is an honor or a cruel joke.
Raised by a single mother, Percy struggles with school because of his dyslexia and ADHD. This makes the series one of the few positive portrayals of people with disabilities (particularly learning disabilities) in science fiction, especially as the dyslexia turns out to be due to his ability to read ancient Greek, and the ADHD an ability to sword fight.
The series is also a great way to get a new generation learning about ancient Greek mythology, including such Gods and Goddesses as Poseidon and Athena.
