School is out and the beaches are open! And, as far as we know, none of our favorite demigods have a life-threatening quest they need to complete this year.
That’s why we wanted to take this rare moment of quiet to catch up with our heroes and discover how they’re planning to spend their summer.
“Annabeth and I are going on a road trip across the US to see some of her favorite pieces of architecture. I keep reminding her that the last time we visited such spots we were attacked by monsters and almost died.”
“Percy is being a big baby about the architecture road trip. So, I’m planning to surprise him with a detour to Georgia to see the world’s largest chicken statue. It’s over sixty feet tall! I think Athena would approve—it’s one of her sacred birds, after all.”
“I’m still getting used to life in California, so I plan to explore more of the area while Percy and Annabeth are gone. Joshua Tree, Yosemite, Sequoia . . . Anywhere but Disneyland. I can’t show my face there anymore after they turned me down for that mascot job.”

“Most of the undergrads at the U of A have gone home for the summer. But I’m thinking of staying a little longer. Casually stalk the halls from time to time. Make sure no one is up to any funny business. A couple of staff members told me I should leave campus already, but if you ask me, it sounded more like a suggestion than an order.”
“I’ll tell you one thing I’m not going to do: let Festus carpool you and your friends gods-know-where. I don’t care how expensive gas is these days. My dragon is not your personal taxi service. . . . Wait, I think I just got an idea. I have to talk to Calypso about this.”
“I can’t begin to describe how exhilarating it is to be back in my godly form once again. No more sweating. No more breakouts. I plan to enjoy this summer to the fullest. I’m going to take the old sun chariot for a spin, serenade lovely maidens and bachelors with my lyre, and uh . . . Hey, you wouldn’t happen to know if anyone at Camp Half-Blood has mentioned the name Lester recently, would you? Just curious. No big deal at all.”
“One last thing: the person they did hire to dress up as that dog is doing it all wrong!”
