The Pox Party (The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, #1)
For as long as Octavian can remember, he has been living and training with a household of elite philosophers and academics. As he gets gradually older, he starts to realize that not everything is as straightforward as it seemed and Octavian's is unbelievably complicated. Set in the 18th Century, this novel deals with both issues of slavery and the inter-workings of the American Revolution. The novel takes place over the course of many years and is told mostly from Octavian's point of view. Though it's extremely interesting and heartbreaking, Octavian is exceptionally philosophical which slows down the pace significantly and could be troublesome for some readers.
