Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
Cecile's brother, Armand, has returned from Paris. Cecile is excited to be the subject of her brother's painting on a July day in 1853. The young girl also spends time with Marie-Grace at the local orphanage. Late in the summer, the yellow fever epidemic clouds the horizon of New Orleans, bringing death and destruction in its wake. Cecile is terrified that she will lose family and friends to this disease. To Cecile's dismay, her brother, Armand, becomes deathly ill. Cecile prays for a miraculous recovery but prepares herself mentally for the worst news. While Armand survives, thousands of people die of yellow fever that summer. Young readers will enjoy the introduction of Cecile, a lively and entertaining character, to the "American Girl" series canon. In this unique series, readers can experience the events from the joint perspectives of two best friends. This unusual storytelling feature allows readers to step back in time through two identities, gaining a wider understanding of historical events. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.

    Best Book of the Series

    This book is really sad and emotional, but that's why it's the best. It almost me cry and I suggest for older girls because the younger audience might find it too sad. It was much better than Marie Grace and the Orphans which was kinda boring.
