I absolutely loved Divergent Trilogy. This book, however, felt as though it was just another way to make money on a story already told. I understand that it is in the point of view of a different character, but, it offer no new or more interesting information. Not worth the read :(

I was hoping for a book that talked more about Canada's Indigenous peoples and their traditions. This was more a juxtaposing of the Christian Nativity into illustrations in other setting.

This powder seems different from the one I have bought through Sephora. Though it is the same brand name and the same colour, this one seems many shades lighter and almost shimmery. I am Hispanic and do not like how light this looks on my skin. I am also 44 and do not want to "shine"!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intruiging Historical Fiction, Dec 13 2010
This review is from: Fever 1793 (Hardcover)
A very informative book about the Yellow Fever epidemic in Philadelphia during the summer of 1793. It gives insight to what the daily life of girls and women was like in the late 1700's. It also illustrates the importance of the Free African Society and their efforts as well as courage in taking it upon themselves to continue to care for the victims of Yellow Fever.
