For some reason I came across it when it first came out, before anyone else knew about it, and I absolutely loved it. At the beginning Patroclus is the underdog.

Adele is one of my favourite writers for children and teenagers. Ithaka is part of a loose trilogy based on the Odyssey , the Iliad and the Aeneid. So Ithaka is written from the point of view Penelope, who is waiting for her husband, Odysseus, to come back from the Trojan War?
From the Series Graphic Myths and Legends. For ten years, the battle raged. After a decade of fighting and thousands dead, the Greek forces suddenly fell back. Cautiously the Trojans ventured out of the city walls, where they discovered a giant wooden horse and a messenger. Should they accept this peace offering?
