Fever 1793

Fever 1793 - Laurie Halse Anderson Good historical fiction about the yellow fever epidemic of Philadelphia in 1793. I enjoyed the overall story and the appearance of some notable characters, including many famous statesmen who were instrumental in the birth of our country. Although the descriptions were realistic and informative, I didn't love this book as much as some other historical fiction written for children (The Witch of Blackbird Pond or Johnny Tremain). Still, overall a fun and informative story.
