Jason has a problem.
He doesn't remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. Apparently he has a girlfriend named Piper. His best friend is a kid named Leo, and they're all students in the Wilderness School, a boarding school for "bad kids", as Leo puts it. What he did to end up here, Jason has no idea—except that everything seems very wrong.

Piper has a secret.
Her father, a famous actor, has been missing for three days, and her vivid nightmares reveal that he's in terrible danger. Now her boyfriend doesn't recognize her, and when a freak storm and strange creatures attack during a school field trip, she, Jason, and Leo are whisked away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood. What is going on?

Leo has a way with tools.
His new cabin at Camp Half-Blood is filled with them. Seriously, the place beats Wilderness School hands down, with its weapons training, monsters, and fine-looking girls. What's troubling is the curse everyone keeps talking about, and that a camper's gone missing. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist they are all—including Leo—related to a god.

I am a seventh grade English Language Arts teacher. I teach in area where the crime and poverty rate are among the highest in Pennsylvania. We are in desperate need of books for our classroom library. It is my hope that each student will be able to borrow books from my classroom to take home with them to read.

My students are from an area where the poverty and crime rates are among highest in the state. I teach three English Language Arts classes, therefore there are a wide range of abilities within my classroom. My students are absolutely amazing. I am hoping to get some of the books they have personally requested to feed their thirst for reading.
