Agosto de 1793, Mattie Cook es una chica de catorce años, ambiciosa, aventurera y harta de escuchar los sermones de su madre. Mattie tiene sus propios planes, como, por ejemplo, convertir el Café Cook en uno de los mejores negocios de Filadelfia.
Pero en el puerto sólo se habla de una posible fiebre. Una epidemia que se extiende desde los muelles hasta la casa de Mattie, amenazando a su familia. Los cementerios se llenan de víctimas y el miedo se convierte en pánico: miles de personas huyen de la ciudad y la tragedia se instala en todos los hogares.
Inesperadamente, la lucha por sobrevivir se impone, obligando a Mattie a tomar drásticas decisiones.

Nice historical fiction about the Yellow Fever epidemic. Interesting medical history as well; wasn't that long ago when bleeding someone was common practice. ( )

Liked the strong heroine, with her big dreams and her willingness to do the work. Halse Anderson does an amazing job with evoking the historical time period and atmosphere. I didn't know anything about this particular episode in time, and I enjoyed reading it. ( )

I read this book in July but I’m just not in the headspace to do detailed reviews on books. It’s all I can do to even read a book right now during COVID. The next few book reviews aren’t going to be much or too in-depth but I’m at least documenting that I read it.

It has been a long time since I read a young adult novel but this one was worth it. When I was in middle school I read a ton of historical novels appropriate for my age group. I have kept a lot of them. This one was a recent beach trip read for m and then I passed it on to my niece.

Fever 1793 is a fabulous historical story for everyone and not just young adults. It’s an easy read with great historical detail. That is what I most liked about the book. She didn’t go short on detail or accuracy but put it in there and helped explain what happened in history using a narrative that was believable.

But here’s what I love most about this book. The author has on her website teaching guides, curriculum links, and more. I’ll definitely be spending some time going through these. . . . maybe when this pandemic is over. ( )

I really enjoyed this story of survival; and I learned a part of US history I was unaware of. ( )

This is a great historical fiction for middle school through adults. I don't remember being taught anything about the yellow fever epidemic that consumed Philadelphia in 1793 so I was really interested after reading the description.

In the beginning of the book, Mattie Cook is a typical kid with big hopes and dreams. She often butted heads with her hard-working mother who owned and operated a coffee shop. The shop was normally packed all day, but as the fever spread, more and more people fled to the country leaving Philadelphia a ghost town.

Mattie came down with the fever after being stranded in the middle of nowhere by a family that she had paid to take her and her grandfather to a friends farm outside the city. She was found laying by the side of the road by French nurses who took her and her grandfather to their hospital.

Mattie recovered and returned to Philadelphia to look for her mother. Instead, she saw people dying in the streets and carts full of the dead being taken to mass graves. Her mother was not at home and the shop had been ransacked. Food was in such short supply everyone ate very little.

You can feel the pain, sorrow, and determination on every page. Mattie's character evolves and grows up quickly. She kept going through it all never giving up or loosing faith that her mother was alive and would return to town.

The first frost of fall came with a huge celebration, marking the end of the yellow fever pandemic. Philadelphia's once hauntingly silent streets were packed with Philadelphians eager to return home. At the time, Philadelphia was the capital of the growing United States. When president Washington returned to the city, the last of the residents came home.

I enjoyed this quick historical read and highly recommend it to middle grades and up. It gives the reader a glimpse into the struggle of staying alive in a time when there were no treatments.

As always, happy reading! 📚
