Description

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.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Bailey Carr gives a contemporary edge to 14-year-old Mattie in this new production of a stellar historical novel. Mattie's story starts out in familiar territory as she navigates chores, parental expectations, dreams of the future, and growing interest in boys. Carr mines Anderson's talent for going deep into the hearts and minds of teens, giving Mattie a touch of defiant sass and dreamy hope. It's almost a jolt to hear the post-Revolutionary War diction in the dialogue, complete with accents and airs communicating the ethnic and social diversity of Philadelphia in 1793. When Mattie is plunged into the horror of the most severe yellow fever epidemic in U.S. history, Carr's gentle voice guides listeners through what seems like an apocalypse.
