The panic unleashed by a mysterious contagion threatens the bonds of family and community in a seemingly idyllic suburban community.

The Nash family is close-knit. Tom is a popular teacher, father of two teens: Eli, a hocky star and girl magnet, and his sister Deenie, a diligent student. Their seeming stability, however, is thrown into chaos when Deenie's best friend is struck by a terrifying, unexplained seizure in class. Rumors of a hazardous outbreak spread through the family, school and community.

As hysteria and contagion swell, a series of tightly held secrets emerges, threatening to unravel friendships, families and the town's fragile idea of security.

A chilling story about guilt, family secrets and the lethal power of desire, THE FEVER affirms Megan Abbot's reputation as "one of the most exciting and original voices of her generation."*

I wasn’t expecting to like ‘Dare Me‘ as much as I did but it quickly made me a forever fan of Megan Abbott. I have yet to pick up any of her older works that for the most part appear to be all Mystery/Noir but I’ll definitely be picking up ‘The Fever’. Sounds fantastic!

What do you think of the ‘The Fever’? Have you read anything of Megan Abbott’s?
