Back to Business.

     I hope you all enjoyed to photos I posted previously due to not feeling well. 
     I don't think I've told you all about Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson, and if I'm repeating myself I'm sorry.
     It's set in the time of the yellow fever epidemic in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania following the life of Miss Matilda Cook.  Her family owns and works a coffee shop, hoping to make it the finest Philadelphia has ever seen when the Fever struck the city.
     The Fever sweeps through the city, taking life after life.  Gravediggers can't dig graves fast enough to keep up with the lost lives.  Leaving bodies laying upon bodies in cemeteries.  Mattie must make her way through the city to find a safe haven and is only struck with how life has been completely altered.  Not only for her, but for her friends and complete strangers as well.


  1. I read this book. I liked it, but it didn't help my intense concern for what would happen if a plague happened. Much less the zombie apocalypse.

  2. I hope you are feeling better?
