About the Book
“Meat!" he said scornfully. "I'm a vegetarian."
"You eat cheese enchiladas and aluminum cans," I reminded him.
"Those are vegetables.”
What I really love, especially as an adult, is that the author took two learning disabilities and made them into something that all the heroes of the story have. Not only is her introducing other children (and adults, let’s be honest here) to having a better understanding of both dyslexia and ADHD but he’s also showing those who have those conditions that they don’t need to be limited by it. I have ADHD, so I especially appreciated it.
Mostly importantly of all, Grover is awesome. Best character, hands down. Also, I really like how he kept up with the personalities of the gods - albeit watered down for the young folks.
This is apparently also a movie… which I haven’t seen. I am really bad at these sorts of things. Anyway, I’m going to have to watch that.
