"Prickly, smart, and laugh-out-loud funny I, Claudia's political emphasis couldn't be more timely, nor her narrator more delightfully suspect. McCoy's skillful weaving of history's great manipulators into a decidedly contemporary setting is fun, memorable, and utterly original."--Alison Umminger, author of American Girls: A Novel

"What do imperial Rome and a contemporary L.A. prep school have in common? More than you might think. Laced with tumult and palace intrigue, I, Claudia pulls back the purple curtain for an inside look at the school's patrician class. With psychological thrills, all-too-apt historical asides, and a witty, unforgettable narrator, I, Claudia is a smart and topical novel, an engrossing reminder that power corrupts.--Kate Hattemer, author of The Land of 10,000 Madonnas and The Vigilante Poets of Selwyn Academy

"Smart, witty, and featuring an unforgettable (and possibly unreliable) narrator, as well as a seamless stream of political history, the audience that finds this novel will be unable to put it down."--starred, Booklist
