I haven’t been doing a whole lot of writing lately but I have been doing my fair share of reading. I just finished reading Octavian Nothing Traitor to the Nation by M.T. Anderson. I’m not sure exactly why this book was classified as YA, the vocabulary alone requires a companion dictionary. One thing I really appreciated about this book was that I felt like I learned from it. I love when I read a book and both enjoy and learn from it. This seems to happen less with YA so when I stumble upon a YA book that I enjoy and learn from, it stands out.
