Here is the picture of the first page of The Demigod Diaries:
Sorry if you can’t see the text. Below I have typed it out:
Annabeth and I were relaxing on the Great Lawn in Central Park when she ambushed me with a question.
“You forgot didn’t you?”
I went into red-alert mode. It’s very easy to panic when you’re a new boyfriend. Sure, I’d fought monsters with Annabeth for years. Together we faced the wrath of the gods. We’d battled the Titans and calmly faced death a dozen times. But now that we were dating, one frown from her and I freaked. What had I done wrong?
I mentally reviewed the picnic list: Comfy blanket? Check. Annabeth’s favorite pizza with extra olives? Check. Chocolate toffee from La Maison Du Chocolat? Check. Chilled sparkling water with a twist of lemon? Check. Weapons in case of Greek mythological apocalypse? Check.
So what had I forgotten?
I was tempted (briefly) to bluff my way through. Two things stopped me. First, I didn’t want to lie to Annabeth. Second, she was too smart. She’d see right through me.
Happy reading to all and remember, The Demigod Diaries officially comes out August 14!
