Riordan, Rick. The sea of Monsters [Percy Jackson #2] Hyperion, 2007
The book opens with Percy's 7th grade year at his exclusive private school
as going well until the end when he is once again drawn back to Camp
Half-Blood.  It appears that the Tree of Life has been poisoned and someone
has to go on a quest to get the Golden Fleece to save it.  Of course, Percy
is not chosen but because of terrible dreams he is having, he and a friend
decide to go anyway to get the fleece and save their friend Grover, the
satyr.  This modern day adventure mixes Greek Mythology with current
characters.  In this 279 Percy gets to learn how to use the powers has been
granted from his father, Poseidon.  This is a fun series which may spur a
student's interest in Mythology.   The Sea of Monsters is number two in a
series which I don't know if has been defined.  So far book 1 and 2 are
great reads.
