Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

Half boy. Half God. All Heroes. Look, I didn’t want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek God. I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. Now I spend my time battling monsters and generally trying to stay alive. The first book in the Percy Jackson series.
