Reviews

β˜… " . . . This title is descriptive and well researched, with a striking bold-red color scheme. Though the images are graphic and potentially disturbing, they are not sensationalized, and enhance the narrative. This is an excellent addition to nonfiction collections in school and public libraries." --School Library Journal, starred review

"Jarrow delves into the debilitating and oft-forgotten disease that became a public health crisis in the U.S. early in the twentieth century. . . A visually dramatic medical mystery, this is cross-curricular and of high interest." --Booklist
