really liked it
bookshelves: juvenile-non-fic

I thought it was quite interesting ... but with one caveat. I am the daughter of a doctor in public health. I grew up hearing about and watching concerns of spreading diseases and the importance of taking medications properly as well as getting vaccinations. There were some great primary source photographs and ads sprinkled throughout the pages. Plus I love reading historical fiction where consumption or delicate constitutions often played a part in the storyline.
If I did not have that background I'm not sure o would have found this as fascinating, though. cant quite put my finger on or. Something about the delivery was not as compelling as, for example, JM's book about the great Chicago fire.
