Publisher's Summary

During the summer of 1793, Mattie Cook lives above the family coffee shop with her widowed mother and grandfather. Mattie spends her days avoiding chores and making plans to turn the family business into the finest Philadelphia has ever seen. But then the fever breaks out. Disease sweeps the streets, destroying everything in its path and turning Mattie's world upside down.

At her feverish mother's insistence, Mattie flees the city with her grandfather. But she soon discovers that the sickness is everywhere, and Mattie must learn quickly how to survive in a city turned frantic with disease.

Great book!

Coincidentally, all three of my children read his book in school at the same time, so I listened to it on audio. The story was interesting and kept me engaged. It took me a little bit to get used to the reader, but

Really good, had a few gross and scary parts.

Was really well written. Had some gross and scary parts, I recommend for 11 and under to listen with adults. The girls voice was kinda creepy 🤡🤡

Not that great

Would you try another book from Laurie Halse Anderson and/or Bailey Carr?

I think Bailey Carr was fine, but the story was really choppy. Everything is written in short little sentences like it was written for little kids. Characters were not that interesting...

Has Fever 1793 turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

What three words best describe Bailey Carr’s voice?

Not that bad
