    Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to stay out of trouble. But can he really be expected to stand by and watch while a bully picks on his scrawny best friend? Or not defend himself against his pre-algebra teacher when she turns into a monster and tries to kill him? Of course, no one believes Percy about the monster incident; he's not even sure he believes himself.

    Overall

    I teach in a special education resource classroom. My students are not reading on grade level so they struggle to read books on their interest level. Audible books allow them to "read" novels that their peers are reading. We listended to the book as a class and the students got more out of the story due to the theatrical read then just myself reading it to them. They can't wait to listen/read the next book in the series.

    At first glance, Lee might seem like an average 15 year old, shooting the breeze with his friends around a campfire, crushing on his friend Dana, sassing the assistant principal at school. But Lee has a little bit more responsibility than your average kid: he's the next Alien Hunter, bequeathed with the List of hidden alien outlaws living and lurking on Earth in disguise.

    What did you love best about The Dangerous Days of Daniel X?

    I am a special education teacher - I purchased Daniel X for a student on the recommendation of a friend. This kido absolutely LOVED the Percy Jackson series and had a hard time finding something else to read when he had exhausted that series and the related books. If it wasn't Greek Mythology, he didn't want any part of it. I convinced him to at least give this book a try. We both started listening in our own time, but when he got ahead of me he started fussing that I needed to hurry and get caught up as it was so good. Then he would mention a little tidbit to get me to want to finish. To see him so excited about a book with a completely different theme was awesome. As for myself, I still am not completely finished with the book, but I enjoy the story. The science fiction/alien part of the book is cool. Kids will love it. The narrator did a great job with the narrating. I had no trouble imagining the characters and their thoughts and feelings of the situations. I don't think I have to say too much about James Patterson as an author - his other works speak for him and his skill as an author. I will be purchasing the rest of this series for my student.
