  1. The Lightning Thief
    Rick Riordan
    1 – He goes to a camp and gets a prophecy
    2 – Percy’s camp director helps him, and Annabeth and Grover (his best friend) will journey with him.
    3 – They leave camp.
    4 – They slay monsters and find out what they are looking for is in a specific place. Percy battles more monsters and finally, they make it to their destination.
    5 – They approach the place, a dangerous place. They barely make it in because of…let’s just say the bouncer.
    6 – Grover is almost pulled under, but Percy and Annabeth save him. They are getting closer to being dead.
    7 – The thing they are looking for is found.
    8 – Some people try to stop him from getting the object to the rightful owner. Percy fights them and pretty much wins.
    9 – The object is returned to the rightful owner, and World War III is prevented.
    10 – Someone turns on Percy, backstabbing him when he least expects it (metaphorically)
    11 – The traitor is gone and had revealed who and why he was working for someone.
    12 – Percy’s a hero, backstabber is gone, and the next book is coming.

  3. Harry Potter is my favorite Hero’s Journey story but a classic hero’s journey is The Odyssey. I read it for school this year and it follows Odysseus as he goes on a journey to return home, facing lots of challenges along the way.
