When Iliona's ship is boarded by pirates, she ends up in Rome as a slave. Separated from her brother, Apollo, Iliona is soon at the whim of her owners, and the chance of regaining freedom seems like a distant dream. Iliona's life as a slave isn't as bad as she feared: her new family provides clothing, food, and even schooling, and best of all, she is free to explore the wonders of Rome.

This is an excellent book. It follows the life of a ficticious slave girl with her daily diary. Lots of great illustrations, great information about what the life of a slave might have been like in Roman days. It's meant for children but is highly enjoyable and informative for adults as well!
