I’m Silvia Fortuna Juno De Luca: half-schoolgirl, half-goddess.
Yes – actual Roman goddess.

But it all starts with Dad. He was messing about, re-enacting
battles at Hadrian’s Wall, when – pow! – he’s

I go after him because someone has to. And now, the fate of my
whole family rests on me . . .

The Romans as you’ve never seen them before!

A laugh-out-loud funny family caper full of excitement
and heart: perfect for fans of Loki, Horrible
Histories and Who Let the Gods Out? 

Readers will go on a time-travel adventure – with
a LARPing twist – as Livi and her family are catapulted
back to Ancient Rome

Perfect for ages 8 and up; sure to be a hit with KS2 readers,
as Romans are a staple on the curriculum
