I mean, sure, it was kind of cool on tournament days, when he dressed up in a suit of Roman armor and shouted: "What ho!'" and challenged us, sword-point against chalk, to run to the board and name every Greek and Roman per-son who had ever lived, and their mother, and what god they worshipped. But Mr. Brunner expected me to be as good as everybody else, despite the fact that I have dyslexia and attention deficit disorder and I had never made above a C- in my life. No-he didn't expect me to be as good; he expected me to be better. And I just couldn't learn all those names and facts, much less spell them correctly.

Her eyes began to glow like barbecue coals. Her fingers stretched,turning into talons. Her jacket melted into large, leathery wings. She wasn't human. She was a shriveledhag with bat wings and claws and a mouth full of yellow fangs, and she was about to slice me to ribbons. pg. 14
"Anyway, Nancy Bobofit was throwing wads of sandwich that stuck in his curly brown hair, and she knewI couldn't do anything back to her because I was already on probation", said Percy as he was looking at Nancy with a smirk. Percy didn't like Nancy because she was always so rude to Grover, but Grover never did anything to her. Grover could never do anything to her because he had a muscular problem in his legs and was very scrawny. (Information found on page 4 of the pdf.)

Percy always beat himself up for having dyslexia and ADHD. He had hated the fact that he was dumber than everyone else, or as he thought. Percy was a trouble maker and didn't always get along with the teachers like everyone else. Percy had been kicked out of every school he went to. In fact the teachers were always so scared to have Percy in their class.

Am I going crazy or is she real?
Percy got in trouble and Mrs.Dodds called him to the library. She talked to Percy about what happened and then she turned into a fury and attacked Percy, but Percy had a sword pen from Mr.Brunner and killed her. He had wondered what happened to her but everyone said there was no Mrs.Dodds ever there and Percy could have sworn that she was real.

Groover please say your kidding your freaking me out.
Grover couldn't do anything about Nancy, but he was an easy target. Grover was scrawny and had a muscular disease in his legs. Most days Nancy would throw food and many other things in his curly brown hair, and wouldn't even care that she had done it. Both Percy and Grover could hardly tolerate Nancy. pg.4
Anyway, Nancy Bobofit was throwing wads of sandwich that stuck in his curly brown hair, and she knew I couldn't do anything back to her because I was already on probation.
Percy had always wondered if Mrs. Dodds was real or if he had a vision about fighting her. Percy had practically gone crazy trying to figure out if she was real or not.
It got so I almost believed them-Mrs. Dodds had never existed. pg.18
Percy started freaking out when Grover said it was always the sixth graders. He had thought he was crazy at first but then he soon realized he was being serious and started asking him a ton of questions wanting to know why it was always the sixth graders and why they didn't make it past sixth grade.
I know, I know. It was rude. But Grover was freaking me out, looking at me like I was a dead man, muttering "Why does this always happen?" and "Why does it always have to he sixth grade?" pg. 32
