With the help of some borderline black magic, Jenks—a pixie—is given human proportions in order to accompany Rachel on a mission to rescue his son. Finding the jailed pixie ends up the easiest task in an operation that quickly spirals out of control after Rachel decides she must also rescue the errant Nick.

Title: Percy Jackson: Sea of monsters
By Rick Riordan
Sumarry: Percy is just finishing up his school year and is looking forward to another great summer at Camp Half-Blood with all the other demigods. But even before school ends, things start happening, and soon Percy is at camp along with Tyson, a homeless kid adopted by Percy's school. At camp, Percy not only discovers that Tyson is a Cyclops and a son of Poseidon, which makes him Percy's half-brother, but also that the camp is in trouble. There's a quest to rescue Percy's friend, Grover the satyr, and to retrieve the Golden Fleece. The plot zips along with plenty of action; lots of mythological monsters, titans, and gods; and a leavening of humor.(Summary thanks to Amazon)
My thought: I really had fun reading this book, while most of the book was predictable the end did shock me, and what I mean by shocked it I can't believe how it end. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

My thoughts: To be honesty I read 30 pages was getting it and pick it down and I was going to leave it on my desk until it was time to return to the library however I saw someone else was reading and asked about it. And I was told it's a little confusing in the begining but it gets before after page 50. I picked it back but just to read 20 more pages too see it it got good, however it didn't. It only took five pages for me it get hook into this story! Sadly the 550 pages book was due back the next and since it was a pretty popluar book I had a feeling someone would have a hold one the book. I pulled on all nighter and read the whole the whole book... I've never cried so hard while reading a book. IT was beautiful, it was heartbreaking, It a story that will stick with me for a long time.
