Top 10 Tuesday: Series I’ve Been Meaning to Start

Percy Jackson has always felt kind of… different. He has ADHD and dyslexia, struggles to fit in, and keeps finding himself kicked out of school.

Then, there’s her father, Charles: the famous writer, whose entire focus in life revolves around keeping their family’s reputation scot-free and away from the careful scrutiny of his conservative readers.
