Check out our review of the first book in the series – Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief.
The second book in this series is Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Sea of Monsters. In this book, Percy has to deal with some big surprises! After Camp Half-Blood turns out not to be as safe (or as fun) as he remembers he suddenly inherits a new cabin mate – another son of Poseidon! The only problem is, he’s not exactly what Percy wanted. Tyson follows him around a lot, looks funny, and doesn’t really get along well with the other campers… I won’t give too many details for those who’ve skipped the book and are waiting for the movie, but sometimes annoying brothers can be just what we need… or our worst nightmare!

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Sometimes in God’s family we get stuck with a lot of people we don’t see eye to eye with. The annoying hero worshiper who always wants to crash your party, or some kid that wants a piggyback, or the old granny that always takes the time to hug you and catch up – right in front of all your friends? God’s people are a mixed bunch, but no-matter how different they are, God wants us to treat each of them with respect and love – just like a brother or sister. Who knows, someday they might surprise you!
See Romans 12:4-26
Have you ever had to put up with some Christian who you didn’t really like?
Maybe a younger sibling you have to watch, or a really annoying person who loved hanging out with you?
Was it ever difficult to keep on being kind and polite?
Did they ever surprise you by helping you out in a tough spot, or doing something cool that you never expected? Did it make you feel guilty that you were so annoyed by them?
