About The Book:
 
Title: THE FEVER
Author:
Megan Abbott
Pub. Date:
May 12, 2015
Publisher:
Little, Brown and Company
Pages: 336
The panic
unleashed by a mysterious contagion threatens the bonds of family and community
in a seemingly idyllic suburban community.

The Nash family is
close-knit. Tom is a popular teacher, father of two teens: Eli, a hockey star
and girl magnet, and his sister Deenie, a diligent student. Their seeming
stability, however, is thrown into chaos when Deenie’s best friend is struck by
a terrifying, unexplained seizure in class. Rumors of a hazardous outbreak
spread through the family, school and community.
As hysteria
and contagion swell, a series of tightly held secrets emerges, threatening to
unravel friendships, families and the town’s fragile idea of security.
A chilling
story about guilt, family secrets and the lethal power of desire, The Fever
affirms Megan Abbot’s reputation as “one of the most exciting and original
voices of her generation” (Laura Lippman).
