Fever 1793


Today I finished the book called Fever 1793.  It is a historical fiction novel about the yellow fever that hit Philadelphia in, yes, 1793.  This book was written by Laurie Halse Anderson. 

 The book is about Mattie Cook, a girl who works and lives at the Cook Coffeehouse.  One day, Polly, one of Mattie’s friends and coworkers, is late, as usual.  But this time later than normal.  Mattie’s mother goes to ask about her, and finds out that Polly is dead!  This is the beginning of the fever for Mattie, and it is not fun.  Mattie’s mother soon catches the fever, and sends Mattie away to keep her safe.  I don’t want to spoil the book, but I will say that Mattie and her grandfather, who was sent to protect Mattie, will change forever.

I do think that this book would fit nicely with my friends,  because they are always wanting to learn new things, and a person can get a lot out of this book.  Happy reading!  ❤
