This book was a great historical read. It's about a girl who lives in the time of the big fever that's going around and killing people. Her mom told her she must leave the town so she won't catch it, so she goes away with her grandpa. She finds a place to stay till the fever's over. I really think history lovers will love this book.

August 1793. Fourteen-year-old Mattie Cook is ambitious, adventurous, and sick to death of listening to her mother. Mattie has plans of her own. She wants to turn Cook Coffee House into the finest business in Philadelphia, the capital of the now US. I liked this because it was very suspenseful and it was hard to put down.

Fever 1793 is one of my favorite books because it involved a lethal epidemic. Mattie Cook was an average girl who had to fight through a deadly disease spreading around her town called Yellow Fever. This specific disease was/is caused by mosquitoes and all around Mattie, people were dying. Mattie's mother and grandfather were also in the fight to survive and luckily, they did. This book is great and I would recommend it to anyone who likes to read about epidemics.

This book is awesome.  It talks about a girl who is trying to love throughout the fever epidemic of 1793.  This book is somewhat emotional and really gets you thinking about what you would do when you are on your own.
