We've got your back. With the Tough-O-Meter, you'll know whether to bring extra layers or Swiss army knives as you summit the literary mountain. (10 = Toughest)

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.
