Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Julia Beiker
Historians have always recorded times where super plagues, like the bubonic plague or the outbreak of Ebola, wipe out large populations. Rooney takes a deeper look into what defines a plague, how it can be controlled, and the aftermath (including death tolls and effects on community), and life after a plague. This well-written book utilizes text features to present complicated evidence, graphic photographs, and precise text to inform the reader. The most profound part of this piece of nonfiction is the day-to-day reference of what happens in a real plague situation. The two-page glossary helps the reader understand high-level scientific vocabulary while the simplified table of contents helps the reader find the right spot quickly. The variety of fonts and bold print breaks apart the pages to make them more manageable. Part of the “A World After” series. Reviewer: Julia Beiker; Ages 12 up.
