HERE ARE SOME QUOTES FROM THE BOOK

QUOTE 1

“It had been a good day, all things considered. I had managed rather well on my own. I opened Grandfather's Bible. This is what it would be like when I had my own shop, or when I traveled abroad. I would always read before sleeping. One day, I'd be so rich I would have a library full of novel to choose from. But I would always end the evening with a Bible passage.”
Laurie Halse Anderson, Fever 1793

QUOTE 2

“Too much sleep is bad for your health, Matilda." She slipped a freshly made ball of butter into a stone crock. "It must be such a grippe, a sleeping sickness.”
Laurie Halse Anderson, Fever 1793

QUOTE 3

“No. Absolutely not. I forbid it. You'll have nightmares."
"She was my friend! You must allow me. Why are you so horrid?"
As soon as the angry words were out of my mouth, I knew I had gone too far.
"Matilda!" Mother rose from her chair. "You are forbidden to pseak to me in that tone! Apologize at once.”
Laurie Halse Anderson, Fever 1793

QUOTE 4

“What did it feel like to die? Was it a peaceful sleep? Some thought it was full of either trumpet-blowing angels or angry devils. Perhaps I was already dead.”
Laurie Halse Anderson, Fever 1793

QUOTE 5

“Our inhumane neighbors, instead of sympathizing with us tauntingly proclaim the healthfulness if their won cities…”
Laurie Halse Anderson, Fever 1793

QUOTE 6

“She looks like a china doll,” observed Grandfather as we departed. “I will break just as easily,” I muttered.”
Laurie Halse Anderson, Fever 1793
