The Lightening Thief by Rick Riordan. Also pinning this for all five books in the series. Read these in third grade and, again, I still pick them up and love them. The movie, however, was not that great. I think they made Annabeth's hair blonde at least in the second movie .... Also not a fan of the continuement of this series with The Lost Hero. But I love Percy Jackson.
This book is the perfect one to read if you were ever the quiet person in love with the center of attention. It takes place over the course of a school year at a boarding school and listening to the audio might break your heart. -DPL_Jenn
