If I were Percy I wood have stayed at camp half blood to be safe from monsters. If mudussa was out there who knows what other monsters are. She gave me the creeps. I also think going home would not be smart if Gabe not there to keep the monsters of Percy’s scent. In the end Percy had to think about his mom at home so he went home to be with her. I would be tempted to go home to mom too but just the thought of those monsters still out there I would have chose to stay at camp half blood. Really enjoyed the book. I have already started sea of monsters. Can’t wait for next book club pick.

    Hi Katie!

    I kind of agree with you on that idea that he should have stayed at the camp. I was a bit confused why he left, but I can understand his reasons. I’m glad you enjoyed the book!
