Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. Apparently he has a girlfriend named Piper. His best friend is a kid named Leo, and they’re all students in the Wilderness School, a boarding school for “bad kids”, as Leo puts it. What he did to end up here, Jason has no idea — except that everything seems very wrong.

Piper has a secret. Her father, a famous actor, 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 all—including Leo—related to a god.

Beginning:

Even before he got electrocuted, Jason was having a rotten day.

Page 56:

All the cabins were cool, but none of them struck Piper as hers. No burning signs-wombats or otherwise-appeared over her head.

Thoughts:

I just started this book a little while ago and I’m enjoying it, so far. The opening made me laugh. I’ve heard lots of good things about this book and series and I’m hoping it gets me out of my current on-again, off-again reading slump.


What’s on your reading schedule for this weekend? 

I hope you have a nice weekend.

Happy Reading!
