Waiting on Wednesday - The Lost Hero

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

The Lost Hero (The Heroes of Olympus #1)
Written by Rick Riordan
Published by Hyperion Books for Children
Publication Date: October 12, 2010

Summary from Goodreads: Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. Apparently she’s his girlfriend Piper, his best friend is a kid named Leo, and they’re all students in the Wilderness School, a boarding school for “bad kids.” What he did to end up here, Jason has no idea—except that everything seems very wrong.

Piper has a secret. Her father 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.

We get not one,  but two books by Rick Riordan this year!  I was very excited about The Red Pyramid, the start to a new series about Egypt and its gods.  But, to be honest, I missed Camp Half-Blood a little, so I'm happy that we get to go back and experience it again with some new characters. 

There was a great article on The Lost Hero at EW's Shelf Life Blog
