There is many choose chance of Percy Jackson. But Percy Jackson have many trouble. I should talk about to trouble of Percy Jackson.
In pg.1 “My name is Percy Jackson.
I’m twelve years old. Until a few months ago, I was a boarding student at Yancy Academy, a private school for troubled kids in upstate New York.” I think this is bad education of Percy Jackson.
“See, bad things happen to me on field trips. Like at my fifth-grade school, when we went to the Saratoga battlefield, I had this accident with a Revolutionary War cannon. I wasn’t aiming for the school bus, but of course I got expelled anyway.” This is bad situation of school trips because if in revolutionary War cannon has bomb, he should kill many people then other people surprise and I think they could see Percy was monster, the rebel army or he crazy, and want to do war.
In pg.17 “I started feeling cranky and irritable most of the time. My grades slipped from Ds to Fs. I got into more fights with Nancy Bobofit and her friends. I was sent out into the hallway in almost every class.
Finally, when our English teacher, Mr. Nicoll, asked me for the millionth time why I was too lazy to study for spelling tests, I snapped. I called him an old sot. I wasn’t even sure what it meant, but it sounded good.” This is second time of bad education than before six grades of Percy Jackson. I think if Percy Jackson fight someone, he can’t concentration of test.
I think everything are wrong of education of Percy Jackson because I think he have some curiosity of many weapon that is danger of many people. I think if Percy Jackson want to go to school, before, he has to study of concept, manners or power of Percy Jackson.
“My grades slipped from Ds to Percy Jackson Fs.” In here, I think he need some study tips because he can’t follow study then he need plan, time, discover your study style, review and ask for help because if he can’t do good to study after and after, too. In ask for help, it is something if he doesn’t know or he have curiosity, he asks to teacher, friends or parents. If he can’t hold back of curiosity something, then he should practice of patience.
In Percy Jackson and the lightning thief Percy Jackson is fearful.
On pg.53 Percy Jackson said,” “I can’t go any farther.” and pg.59 “My mother was gone.”
Based on these actions one can infer that on pg.53 “I can’t go any farther.” In here, Percy Jackson was so fearful because Percy Jackson was don’t know where it and no one can help in that situation then he got fear of losing his mom and how to kill Minotaur, but he was using his power then “My legs tensed. I couldn’t jump sideways, so I leaped straight up, kicking off from the creature’s head, using it as a springboard, turning in midair and landing on his neck. How did I do that? I didn’t have time to figure it out,” Percy said. I think He was so surprised that he resolved his fears and used his powers to kill Minotaur.
Based on these actions one can infer that on pg.59 “My mother was gone.” This is fearful to Percy Jackson because “The whole world should be black and cold. Nothing should look beautiful.” he lost mom then I think he knew if he lost his mom, he would feel everything has gone.
