From the author of treasured educational titles like Speak
comes another riveting work of historical fiction. Author Laurie Halse Anderson tells a story focused on one young girl's immense struggle to battle an infectious fever that is changing her world.
Mattie Cook’s life has never been easy, but she is determined to make something of her family’s Philadelphia coffee shop. With just her widowed mother and her grandfather, Maddie uses the summer of 1973 to improve the success of their business, instead of simply handling the chores that most girls her age are responsible for. Yet Mattie’s ambitious dreams are cut short when a terrible fever breaks out in Philadelphia. When her mother is touched by the illness, Mattie and her grandfather have to leave Philadelphia. Unfortunately Mattie comes to learn that the fever isn’t just in her hometown – it’s everywhere.
With strong historical themes and a focus on illness and death, this title is recommended for readers ages ten to fourteen, or with at least a fifth grade reading level.
