Summary

An American teenager discovers he is half human, half Greek god, and sets about trying to avert a war among the Olympians

Does six schools in six years count as troubled? Does finding out that the Greek gods are alive and living in America count as troubled? Does the fact that some of them are trying to kill you count as troubled? And does discovering that you're the only half-blood alive who can stop a war of the gods count as troubled? It does.

Because if Olympus does exist, then so must the Underworld. And if Percy (or whoever he really is) doesn't complete his quest by Summer Solstice, never mind trouble - there's going to be Hades to pay...
