The first book in the Percy Jackson series got me started in a journey for reading all the way back in 2nd grade! Ever since then, I've always avidly bought each new PJO book and read it. This book definitely starts the adventure nicely, where you meet Percy, Annabeth, and Grove. They go on a quest to retrieve a lightning bolt that Percy is accused of stealing. There are definitely a few plot twists that will make you doubt yourself. This book is amazing, everybody should read it.
