School Library Journal reviewed Last Girls of Pompeii

The volcanic story of Last Girls of Pompeii

Lasky seamlessly weaves a great deal of history into this novel... She vividly portrays a wide swath of society—rich and poor, slaves and gladiators, priests and priestesses as well as the working people of Pompeii. Her well-rounded main characters exist in a world on the brink of disaster, a fact well known to most readers. Even so, Lasky effectively uses subtle indications of the impending eruption to increase the suspense and keep readers on the edge of their seats.
