In Percy Jacksons, the Titan Curse, the narrator is Percy and is told in First Person. The mood of the story is to feel helpless/hopeless. This is so because throughout the quest to find his friend Annabeth and Lady Artemis, he doesn't think he will make it. The tone of the story is basically like barely making it. For example, Percy would barely survive the battles against monsters. As well, Percy barely made it in time so Atlas could carry the sky. Also, barely making it in time to save Lady Artemis and Annabeth.

In the book, Percy is struggling to stay alive. He sneaks out to go on a quest, but isn't exactly what he expects. In my life, I have experienced many things that I did not expect, such as a new brother, not making a team I thought I would, or getting along with someone. As well, Percy finds out his weakness. He doesn't accept it, and say it is more of a good thing. During my soccer matches, when someone points out my weaknesses, I to do not accept them at times. It is difficult for both of us to learn from what is told to us. Lastly, Percy and I are given major jobs not other kids do. I have a big role in my family, Percy has a big role of saving Camp Half a blood.

"She hesitated. I could tell she was trying to decide whether or not to trust me. Despite our occasional fights, we'd been through a lot together."

I chose this passage because this short section of a paragraph, described how Percy and Annabeth's friendship was. They occasional argued and not talked to each other, which is typical for most friendships. But, they had gone through a lot of things together, helping each other out meaning they still did trust each other. No matter the incident that caused them to be mad, they solved it because nonetheless, they were there for each other.
