Something clever I'll change later

I like fantasy. The end.
The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Vol I: The Pox Party - M.T. Anderson I'm creating a new shelf. It's called "Old Young Adult," because this is marketed as YA but it shouldn't be regarded as bad because of that.

I thought it was ok. The beginning was interesting, and the last 20 pages or so, but the middle 250 just DRAGGED. I started having to force myself to read a few pages at a time.

Would be really great for a budding high schooler who is getting interested in American history - this paints a very unromantic picture of the reality of the Revolutionary War.
