Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A 14(?) year old girl's experience of the yellow fever epidemic in Philadelphia of 1793. As you might expect, there's a lot of death and disease. It weaves the history in quite well.
It's good. It's well-written, exciting, and it's easy to relate to the characters. It didn't wow me, though. Not sure why. It's definitely worth reading.
