A Greek boy named Timon is a slave to a moderately well known Roman painter who receives a commission in the town of Vesuvius. A series of events unfold that give him the chance to escape, if he would want. However, he is relatively fond of his master, and has fallen for a local Roman girl. The plot is interesting enough it compels the reader even though the end of the book is apparent for everyone that knows their history. A great young adult fiction set in ancient Rome.

Terrific YA historical fiction, about a Greek boy who's been sold into slavery and finds himself in scruffy Pompeii, where he and his master, an elderly painter, meet an assortment of odd characters. Over them, while some of them plot escape for reasons unrelated to natural disaster, looms this pretty mountain.

If anybody is thinking "used bookstore," I'd sure like a copy of this.
