The book I had chosen for my book project was Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan. The main character in this book was Percy Jackson his father is Poseidon the god of the sea and his mother is a normal human. In the book he discovers more of his abilities he inherited from his father and he learns to like his half-brother Tyson. Tyson is also a son of Poseidon, but instead of a human he is a Cyclops.

Although she is sometimes harsh on Percy she does value his friendship. Then there is Clarisse the daughter of Ares. She is extremely hot headed. In this book she travels with Percy, Tyson, and Annabeth to prove herself to her father and all the other half bloods and camp Half-Blood.
