I read “I Survived The Destruction of Pompeii” by Lauren Tarshis.
In the first chapter, Mount Vesuvius erupted and Pompeii vanished under more than 30 feet of fiery ash and stone. The people said it was the end of the world. Marcus, the main character, looked up and saw a big flaming boulder heading toward him and he ran.
Marcus was a slave and had to scrub the floors and bowls, and it was a lot of work. Marcus was just missed by a big marble statue of Achilles that nearly came crashing down on top of him.
So far Marcus had bad luck. Will his luck change? I think you should head to your library or bookstore and grab a copy to find out!
