Percy Jackson’s experiences do align with the hero’s journey. First, his experiences align with the hero’s journey because he’s, so far, following all the steps in the hero’s journey. He follows all the steps because first he starts off in an ordinary world, which is the first step, then things start to turn supernatural and adventure is basically calling him. So, he goes to do what he needs to do even if he’s very confused, just like in the hero’s journey.
