Olivia's book review

The thieves of Ostia
The thieves of Ostia is set in 79 A.D., in ancient Rome. The main characters are a Christian boy named john, a ship captain’s daughter, Flavia, a mute boy called lupus, and a slave girl named Nadia. It is a mystery, and the first book in a series.  Someone is killing watch dogs and taking the heads. Also, someone stole from a very important man in Rome. Could the 2 be connected? Flavia must find out.   
      This book was really good and the second book is called the secrets of Vesuvius. Also, I liked how every place in the book really existed, like Ostia was really in Rome and is a town, and Pliny really is a person.
