The Fever: A Novel by Megan Abbott

The Fever is set to be released on June 17, 2014


A popular high school girl has a seizure in class and is rushed to the hospital. Her situation is dire and then other girls start to experience similar symptoms.

Could it the a side effect of the HPV vaccine ? Could it the the glowing Lake or something else more sinister? 

This is one of those books that starts off great! There is a lot of build up and excitement and then it just falls apart and becomes anti-climatic. You keep expecting a epidemic than a majorly frighting pandemic but you get  neither. The title, cover and synopsis are misleading .... pass on this read and pick something else up.

Grade: D
