Book Project #2: Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief

 Book Project #2
Bryce Laraya

In the book Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan, the genre is action. This book has more than one theme. Some of the themes are destiny and responsibility, courage, loyalty, trust and betrayal. It shows destiny and responsibility by telling us that Percy has to go and get the lightning rod back from Luke. It shows courage because Percy had to go on a journey to get the lightning rod back with his friends. It shows loyalty because in the end Percy went to Zeus and told him that Luke stole the lightning rod from him. It shows trust because Percy trusted his friends enough to let them go with him. Last but not least there are signs of betrayal because Percy thinks Luke is his friend but he turned out to be the one that stole the lightning rod so they have to fight to get the rod back. Rick Riordan portrays the theme by taking the reader on the adventure Percy Jackson is on and he portrays the theme through the events he puts into the story.
