Reviews

"Readers will be swept up in the story as Cleo builds friendships and manages to find hope amid disease and death."--Kirkus

"Highly sympathetic characters, a solid sense of place, and the transformation of a city under siege by an invisible assailant result in a powerful and disturbing reading experience."
--Publishers Weekly

"Lucier has done her research, creating a compelling work of historical fiction alongside a more timeless journey of self-discovery."--Bulletin

* "The novel's strong voice intimately places readers directly into the dramatic plot right up to climactic ending. . . . Lucier's novel deserves a place in all high school collections."
--School Library Journal, starred review

"Lucier's debut details Cleo's loss of innocence, as she deals with gruesome deaths and emergency surgeries...supplying readers with a broad understanding of the era and the epidemic via a spirited and easy-to-relate-to protagonist."
--Booklist

"A rare window into another time and place, one that invites readers to draw parallels to their own lives in contemporary times."
--Horn Book Magazine
