The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan | Book Review

Throwback Review!

This is pitiful how many good books I've read and then didn't take the time to write out a review for!  I promise, there are full reviews of the rest of the books that I've read in this series.  They're fantastic books: full of adventure and laughs and gender-neutral.... great for middle grades and high schoolers.  On Goodreads, I gave this book, the first in the series, 3 of 5 stars.  I ended up giving the next two books in the series 4 or 5 of 5 stars each... not sure what my thought was only giving this 3 of 5 stars!  See, this is why writing something, even just a few sentences, is important when reviewing books!  Or how do I know why I thought what I thought?

Here's the Goodreads synopsis/review, so that you can at least have the plot before you read my reviews of the following books in the series:

Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up in a bus full of kids on a field trip. Apparently he has a girlfriend named Piper and a best friend named Leo. They’re all students at a boarding school for “bad kids.” What did Jason do to end up here? And where is here, exactly?

Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, ever since she had that terrifying nightmare. Piper doesn’t understand her dream, or why her boyfriend suddenly doesn’t recognize her. When a freak storm hits, unleashing strange creatures and whisking her, Jason, and Leo away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood, she has a feeling she’s going to find out.

Leo has a way with tools. When he sees his cabin at Camp Half-Blood, filled with power tools and machine parts, he feels right at home. But there’s weird stuff, too—like the curse everyone keeps talking about. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist that each of them—including Leo—is related to a god.
