The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan
Publisher:Disney Hyperion Books
Series:Percy Jackson and the Olympians,Book Two
Page Amount:288,US Hardback Edition
"The heroic son of Poseidon makes an action-packed comeback in the second must-read installment of Rick Riordan's amazing young readers series. Starring Percy Jackson, a "half blood" whose mother is human and whose father is the God of the Sea, Riordan's series combines cliffhanger adventure and Greek mythology lessons that results in true page-turners that get better with each installment. In this episode, The Sea of Monsters, Percy sets out to retrieve the Golden Fleece before his summer camp is destroyed, surpassing the first book's drama and setting the stage for more thrills to come."

I'm not sure how it is possible but The Sea of Monsters is even better than The Lightning Thief which is the first novel in this series. Percy grows more into himself and his being a DemiGod. There is of course a crazy journey he, Annabeth and Tyson.
Really loved this sequel. Definitely good for middle graders or even 5 to 6th graders. But it is a magical read.
5/5 stars, Happy Reading, Ashley
