Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up in a bus full of kids on a field trip. Apparently he has a girlfriend named Piper and a best friend named Leo. They’re all students at a boarding school for “bad kids.” What did Jason do to end up here? And where is here, exactly?
Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, ever since she had that terrifying nightmare. Piper doesn’t understand her dream, or why her boyfriend suddenly doesn’t recognize her. When a freak storm hits, unleashing strange creatures and whisking her, Jason, and Leo away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood, she has a feeling she’s going to find out.
Leo has a way with tools. When he sees his cabin at Camp Half-Blood, filled with power tools and machine parts, he feels right at home. But there’s weird stuff, too—like the curse everyone keeps talking about. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist that each of them—including Leo—is related to a god.
Information from Goodreads.com
I loved all the characters in this book and keeping in mind that this is actually for younger YA and middle grades, this book is absolutely perfect. It has action, adventure, young first love, prophecies and everything you could ask for! It even teaches a lot about mythology, which happens to be one of my favorite subjects.
Yep, I already have the next four in my Amazon wishlist. I can't see me not devouring the rest of the series soon, I have to figure out how it ends. And btw, this book ends on such a cliffhanger, so have the second book handy!
