I have to admit that YA is normally not my thing, but in an effort to broaden my horizons this year, i have started to explore different genres and authors, with YA being just one of them. Having read previous novel by her (Speak) and enjoying it, I decided to seek out more of her books. Fever 1793 provides an account of a teenager who lived through the Yellow Fever epidemic that hit Philadelphia in, yes you guessed it, 1793. It was a relatively short read (I managed to finish it up in about 2 hours), but it was an area of history I am unfamiliar with and will likely seek out some more about it in the future. I look forward to reading more books by Laurie Halse Anderson. Next up on the pile by her is Wintergirls.
