From the Mailbag

I always get great fan mail. Unfortunately I’m not able to respond to the letters anymore because of the sheer volume (and because you guys want me to spend most of my time writing the next book!) but I always look through the mail and really appreciate the great feedback.

It’s rare I get mail from Pakistan, however, and this letter deserves special mention. This comes from a girls’ high school in Islamabad where the seventh graders read The Lightning Thief each year. One of the students, Alishba, wrote this wonderful rap song based on Percy Jackson. I love it! Thanks to the girls of the seventh grade for reading the book, and thanks to their teacher Mrs. Mahsud for sharing!
