Fever 1793, by Laurie Halse Anderson

"I give this book five stars! It is very descriptive and (that) makes the story much easier to understand. It it is heartwarming and very suspensful. I love it! Reviewed by Chris Marie, from Brown Summit Middle School!

"Extremely well researched, Anderson's novel paints a vivid picture of the seedy waterfront, the devastation the disease (Yellow Fever epidemic) wreaks on a once thriving city, and the bitterness of neighbor toward neighbor as those suspected of infection are physically cast aside." ~ Publishers Weekly
