    He is a boy dressed in silks and white wigs and given the finest of classical educations. Raised by a group of rational philosophers known only by numbers, the boy and his mother, a princess in exile from a faraway land, are the only people in their household assigned names. As the boy's regal mother, Cassiopeia, entertains the house scholars with her beauty and wit, young Octavian begins to question the purpose behind his guardians' fanatical studies.

    Overall

    This is a wonderful, heartbreaking tale of a young Prince in pre-revolutionary America who comes to find out he is also a slave and the subject of an intense scientific study. Smart and insightful, it examines the best and worst of the American character and humanity as a whole. Plus,it's great as an audio book.
