Middle-Grade Fiction Review: Fever 1793

Today's review is written by a special guest reviewer, my 12-year old cousin Abby. I have heard wonderful things about Laurie Halse Anderson's books but have never had the chance to read one myself, so I was glad to read Abby's review:

Fever 1793
, by Laurie Halse Anderson, is a very interesting book because it tells a fictional story about the yellow fever of 1793. After reading a couple chapters of Fever 1793, I was not very interested. I was not very interested because there was not a lot of action happening. I kept reading on to about half the book, and there, there was a lot more action happening, and it was more enjoyable. Finally, after I finished Fever 1793, I was really happy because it mostly has a happy ending. I would rate this book with an eight out of ten. I would give it an eight because the beginning wasn't all that interesting, but by the end, I was hooked, and ready to read a sequel, if there was one. In conclusion, Fever 1793 was a great book, and very enjoyable.

Sounds great - I can't wait to read it myself! Thanks, Abby!
