Children as well as adults will adore Laurie Hales Andersons Fever 1793 an adventurous well-written novel My first impression of the story was that it was going to be boring and uneventful My impression was wrong As I began reading I learned that it was an exhilarating and fascinating book The main character Mattie Cook was a valiant and a determined young woman During the summer of 1793 her hometown of Philadelphia was invaded by Yellow Fever But when her mother was infected with the horrible disease she ordered Mattie and her grandfather to depart from the town and wait until two frosts had passed in order to return But when Mattie discovers that the illness is everywhere she must learn to take care of herself in a city turned frantic with disease Although I never had a family member that was infected with Yellow Fever I can still relate to some events that happened to Mattie One of those events was when my grandfather died In the novel Matties grandfather had died of old age My grandfather did not die of old age like Matties did but of a disease called Leukemia Although I did not know him that well I was still sadden and traumatized by his death like the fictional character Mattie Throughout the entire novel the author expresses feelings and thoughts about the characters so that you can relate to them Her dialogue is absolutely magnificent and she expresses their feelings so well For example when Mattie was being robbed in her own home the description of her facial expressions shows the reader that she is irritated and furious When she was talking to one of the robbers their conversation was so clear and very detailed The expression on Matties face as well as the dialogue makes it look as though Mattie was about to strike the robber in the face One thing that I especially liked about
