"An honourable, obstinate, truthful, high-spirited, intensely prejudiced, perfectly unreasonable man."

The Heroes of Olympus, Book One the Lost Hero

The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus, #1) - Rick Riordan Jason has a problem. He doesn't remember anything before waking up in a bus full of kids on a field trip led by a paedophile satyr who refers to the children as 'cupcakes.' As if he wants to eat them. Any way, he's holding hands with a girl and is complaining that he doesn't know her when she pleads she's his girlfriend (seriously dude, go for it! I think you need to get laid more than anyone). What's worse? He has sister issues, and possible family-trauma. Piper has a secret. Her father's a de facto movie star, and she could live like a bourgeoisie, but instead she's sent to correctional schools. She, like you or I, is a self-conscious teenager who can "charmspeak" --seduce-- people into doing things they wouldn't normally do. Leo has a way with tools. But clearly he's a mama's boy. AND THEY'RE ALL SCHIZOPHRENIC AND CAN HAVE TURRETS SYNDROME. But seriously, this is a good-quick-read if you're into mythology and stuff. It certainly is nice to have a break from the huge 1000 page books once in a while, and hey; why not give this book a shot while you're at it? But beware of the incessant dream sequences
