The Fever: A Novel

The Fever: A Novel

Megan Abbott


"THE FEVER holds real to its identify: it is darkish, stressful, surprisingly appealing and completely unshakeable" -- Gillian Flynn.

In this impossible-to-put-down "panic assault of a novel,"* a small-town highschool turns into the breeding floor for a mysterious sickness.

Deenie Nash is a diligent scholar with a close-knit kin; her brother Eli is a hockey celebrity and her father is a well-liked instructor. but if Deenie's ally is struck via a terrifying, unexplained seizure at school, the Nashes' seeming balance dissolves into chaos. As rumors of a detrimental outbreak unfold via university, and hysteria and contagion swell, a chain of tightly held secrets and techniques emerges, threatening to resolve friendships, households, and the town's fragile feel of protection.

A chilling tale approximately guilt, family members secrets and techniques, and the deadly strength of wish, THE FEVER is "a potboiler within the truest, most sensible experience" and "a nice novel, complete stop."**
