Fever, 1793 is a historical and interesting book. It is sad, but it really highlights all of the bad things that happened in the epidemic of 1793. It is fiction, but it has a few historical facts snuck in there, unless you count the overall feel of how it was back then. It covers everything from the starting of the fever, and the sorrow it caused, to the ending of the fever, which brought relief and hope. The majority of the book is the time period of the middle of the horrifying fever. This book not only shows you the culture back then, but it's just a wonderful and riveting read. I hope you not only enjoy it, but see how horrible it was for the people at that time with Laurie Halse Anderson's descriptive words.
