Fever, 1793

Fever, 1793


by Laurie Halse Anderson

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

The historical context might seem a bit daunting, but Fever, 1793 is actually a pretty quick read. Laurie Halse Anderson does her best to modernize the dialogue, with only the occasional eighteenth-century phrase thrown in for good measure. The fast-paced action should be enough to keep younger readers turning the pages.
