Yellow fever come into town and more then a 1,000 people were killed it was a disaster. All of Matilda family gets sick and has yellow fever even her to find out if she died or not read this book. If u cry when you read sad book then get a tissue box and start reading!!!! :)

This was an absolutely interesting book, for sure. The characters spoke in Old English, somewhat. Many parts were very emotional, but the characters knew how to make fun of a situation. Although this book was good overall, I wouldn't give it five stars. I found it very difficult to get hooked, to keep reading. I basically had to push myself to finish the book. It was pretty interesting overall, though.

    EH

    I think this is a really well developed book. Anderson has the facts all right and you can really learn something from it. But I found it difficult to get pulled into. I became bored very quickly and couldnt bring myself to go on with it. I got to page 39 and coughed up a faulty book report. After that I forced myself to read the rest. Adults, this is a children's book. Children, you'll be bored to death. Author, great explanations and research, i guess i'm just not into that kind of book.
