After a summer spent trying to prevent a catastrophic war among the Greek gods, Percy Jackson finds his seventh-grade school year unnervingly quiet. His biggest problem is dealing with his new friend, Tyson—a six-foot-three, mentally challenged homeless kid who follows Percy everywhere, making it hard for Percy to have any "normal" friends. But things don't stay quiet for long...
Billed as a manual for newbies entering Camp Half-Blood, this miscellany of all things Percy Jackson may satisfy readers eagerly awaiting the final installment in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, due in May. Three previously unpublished stories in which the son of Poseidon narrowly escapes death while cracking jokes read like scenes cut from previous novels which is a compliment. Spliced between stories two and three are brief, comic "interviews" with Grover, Clarissa and other campers. Bland illustrations depicting the contents of Annabeth's trunk, a map of Camp Half-Blood and a short "sneak peek" at The Last Olympian pad the contents (barely) to book length; the inclusion of a crossword puzzle and a word search makes the book difficult to share. Not a must-read but try telling that to rabid fans. Ages 10 up.

The book is sooo awesome! I loved the ending! I jumped right to the next book. When you read the ending, it’s nearly impossible not to want to read the next book. No joke! Go Percy!

My fave in the series.
So many comments already. Just gonna add this:
(No that is not a typo.)
(It is an inside joke.)
P.S. Please note this book has greek mythology in it and that that just makes it better. But you may have something agents that. (Whatever it may be.)
