Jason- the protagonist and a demigod. Son of Zeus, the god of lightening.Piper- Jason's friend who likes him more than a friend and a demigod. Daughter of Aphrodite, the goddess of love ' beauty and Tristan McLean, a superstar.Leo- Jason's friend and a demigod. Son of Hephaestus, the god of blacksmiths and fire This story takes place in present time and in the United States ' Canada. Some places include, Arizona, Texas, Chicago, Quebec, and so on. The setting is at many different places because the characters are going on a quest.

- “I'm Dylan. I'm so cool. I want to date myself, but I don't know how! You want to date me instead? You're so lucky!”- “Leo: “I can’t believe I thought you were hot.” Khione’s face turned red. “Hot? You dare insult me? I am cold, Leo Valdez. Very, very cold.” - “What about a compromise? I’ll kill them first, and if it turns out they were friendly, I’ll apologize.”

Jason, the protagonist wakes up in a school bus, holding hands with a girl, who he doesn't even know. Jason doesn't know who he is, why he is there, and how come everyone else knows who he is but he doesn't have a clue of who they are. This also makes the reader to ask themself the same questions, which causes the reader to stay interested and curious. The girl turns out to be Piper, his girlfriend. A boy in front of them turns out to be Leo, Jason's best friend. They are going on a trip to the Grand Canyon. When they reach there, weird things occur. A boy named Dylan turns out to be a venti, an evil wind spirit. Jason, Piper, and Leo survive but their bus coach who is actually a goat, gets lost when he sacrifices his life for them. All of them realize that they are being attacked for some kind of reason and Jason has a special power. Jason, Piper, and Leo stick together to take on their journey from Camp-Half Blood and fight the forces of evil.

I think the theme of this book is that friendship is really important in life. True friends are there when you need them and support you through difficult situations. From the beginning of the book to the end, Jason, Piper, and Leo's friendship remains which is the leading factor to their survival. They knew they needed each other and couldn't complete their quest without their friendship.I really like this book because it was well written and interesting. Some parts were unpredictable which made me become very curious. Also, I can relate to the characters in the story by their thoughts and feelings. In addition, I enjoy how Rick Riordan uses vivid imagery throughout the story to make it more and more realistic. All in all, I would recommend this book to children of all ages. I would also recommend reading the next books of the series.

I chose these quotes because these are just some of the quotes that display the humor in this story.The first quote shows Leo's sense of humor in the story. For the first one, Leo is making an impression of Dylan, who is self-conceited. For the second one, Leo thought a girl was hot, in a sense she was pretty. But, that girl was actually a goddess of snow. So, she took Leo's comment as an insult. This quote shows how the author tried to put humor in this quote. For the third one, Coach Hedge makes a funny statement where he says that he will kill someone and if they turn out to be good, then he will apoligize.

Incredulous- unbelieving; or having difficulty accepting something so unexpectedI chose this word because it made me think of the word incredible was associated with this word. So, when it said the meaning is unbelieving, I thought that something incredible can be unbelieving.Appease- satisfy or pacify (make less angry or upset), typically by giving something wantedI chose this word because it reminded me of the word please. So, when you appease someone you are pleasing them.Malevolent- wishing or appearing to wish evil to othersI chose this word because I thought the words malficient, violent, and bad were associated with this word. So, when it said the meaning is appearing to be evil, I thought that someone malficient would want to be malevolent and to create violence. mal- bad.
