Fever 1793

Fever 1793

By Laurie Halse Anderson

This was a great historical fiction young adult piece.  I like that there is so much historical fact that can be learned from this book and that at the end the author identifies all this for you.  Great for kids!

This book is about a yellow fever epidemic in the young United States in 1793.  It was kind of slow and uneventful in the beginning, but I found myself  liking the characters and in tears by the end.
