The Midnight Charter by David Whitley

The Midnight Charter is a realistic story about how everything was for sale, even people. The story begins with Mark being sold to a doctor by his father. Soon after being sold Mark meets Lily who teaches him to read and write. Upon learning of these abilities Count Stelli makes him his apprentice. From there things get both much better and worse for Mark. Meanwhile Lily still tries to uncover the answer to the question that has plagued her whole life: Who am I?

This was a decent book for people who enjoy reading. The state of Angora was fairly believable and the wording was good. It was fairly easy to picture the places and people. There were some scenes that it felt like I was there but others where there wasn't much to it. I would recommend this to people who love to read and have good imaginations.
