    Select Reviews of "Deadly"

    The New York Times

    "Paced like a medical thriller, “Deadly” is the rare Y.A. novel in which a girl’s intellectual interests trump adolescent romance. A 16-year-old Jewish tenement dweller in 1906 New York pines away days at a finishing school on scholarship and nights helping midwife young mothers. When she quits school to assist the Department of Health and Sanitation in its pursuit of “Typhoid Mary,” she is awakened to nascent opportunities for women in science." –for the subject, moral, and historical events, California standard readers association requires all 7th grade science classes in California to read it according to it standards reaching 7th grade standards and require class association with effort.

    The School Library Journal

    "A deeply personal coming-of-age story set in an era of tumultuous social change, this is top-notch historical fiction that highlights the struggle between rational science and popular opinion as shaped by a sensational, reactionary press."

    Kirkus Reviews

    "Rich period details about the study of medicine and the role of women in society combine with Prudence’s girlish crush on her chief and her earnest desire to “do something astonishing with my life” to make this a title that will appeal to reluctant readers and historical fiction fans alike."
