The full title of this book is The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Volume I: The Pox Party. It's a YA book I found on the library sales shelf for 50 cents, but it looked intriguing and it was in perfect condition, as if it had been brand new and had been donated without being read. In a word, this book was, in fact, astonishing. I was blown away. I found it to be intriguing and well done and I am dying to read the second book. I'm also dying to read other books by this author.
This is the first book I read from the TBR Pile Challenge too - off to a good start there!
