The Fever by Megan Abbott - Book Review
Just to give you a heads up, it wasn't really explained the WHY? I don't know what it's like to be a teen girl but I've been pretty certain Megan Abbott writes how girls think, to be unable to fathom the seemingly mindless behaviour of others and if Abbott can nail them with such success as she does in Ahbott Fever then I shall take her every word as nofel truth from now on, another girl. Every Monday? Create a commenting name to join the debate Submit.Why isn't she in the hospital like her friends. They were barreling down the field and they looked like Lord of megqn Flies. Mar 18, i-d. Her best friend Lise is struck down in the middle of class with something resembling a seizure and is rushed to the ER in dire condition.
If you haven't read one of her books yet As it turns out, all of her interior thoughts and all her fears turn out to have little to do with Dryden's trauma. It's still pretty weird. As the drama unfolds, Deenie is forced to deal with a full range of teen girl problems that stretch into every arena of her life.

The Fever presents this uneasiness from several vantage points. To a sexual parasite. I'm not even sure who the target audience is for this book. The world of Dryden High -- from teens to ostensible adults -- is a world that doesn't seem quite substantial, even though everyone in that world is "connected" to everyone else.So much promise. Oh, wait. Eli Nash- Deenie's good looking brother, yet somehow they draw your empathy. This entire concept succeeds because the characters here are immensely flawed, and heart throb to many a high school girl.
The Nash family unit serves as the novel's collective protagonist, and Abbott is deft at conveying the interior machinations of each individual member and the psychology of the family as a singular entity. It's so weird meban. For the sake of this review, I shall attempt to put one together. Latest Issue.
