My Story: Pompeii

It’s August AD 78, and Claudia is at the Forum in the great city of Pompeii. It’s a day of strange encounters and even odder portents. When the ground shakes, Claudia is convinced it is a bad omen. What does it all mean? And why is she so disturbed by Vesuvius, the great volcano that looms over the city? A gripping story-diary that brings to life one of the greatest cities of the Roman empire – and the terror of one of history’s most cataclysmic disasters, which is still notorious today.

  • I asked my dad to buy me this book because I adore My Story. He also bought me My Story: Suffragette. I decided to read Suffragette first – but when I had a look inside both, I found Pompeii much more intriguing, though I am more interested in the Suffragettes and especially the late Victorian and early Edwardian times. I can’t wait to read it!
