Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightening Thief by Rick Riordan.
Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can’t seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse. When Percy’s mom finds out, she knows it’s time that he knew the truth about whee he came from, and that he’s to go to the place he’ll be safe- Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends, Percy sets out on a quest to reach the gates of the Underworld and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.
Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James
Tracker is known far and wide for his skills as a hunter: “He has a nose,” people say. Engaged to track down a mysterious boy who disappeared three years earlier, Tracker breaks his own rule of always working alone when he finds himself part of a group that comes together to search for the boy. The bad is a hodgepodge, full of unusual characters with secrets of their own, including a shape-shifting man-animal known as Leopard.
Black Leopard,Red Wolf explores the fundamentals of truths, the limits of power, the excesses of ambition, and our need to understand them all.
