I read this book for a co-worker who is searching for YA historical fiction covering London's Black Death. I don't think it will meet her needs for her classroom but it wasn't a waste of my time to read it.
There were enough descriptive passages to pique my interest and I'll continue to look for historical fiction from this period in London's history. Fantastic book about a girl whose parents have recently split moving into a new house with something The girl, Emily, feels out of place, caught between friends she hasn't made yet and losing her old ones, and her emotions gradually lead her to see images of the past, the Great Plague of , imprinted on the present. And then the opposite happens and she finds herself in in the middle of a terrifying situation.
The book is written entirely in the present tense, which I foun Fantastic book about a girl whose parents have recently split moving into a new house with something The book is written entirely in the present tense, which I found annoying for about three seconds and then I stopped noticing it because the author uses the technique so skillfully.
It makes it seem like Emily is perpetually stunned by everything that's happening to her, and it's all going down much too fast. Since that was clearly the author's intent, it works. There are two other fantastic books that this one reminds me of. They share a similarity in plot — somehow the past gets involved with the present — and also that in both of them, the main character is dealing with some major life issues that are given context or illuminated by dealing with the ghost problem. If you've enjoyed either of those books, you'll probably like this one, and vice versa.
Great book, I've read it twice already. Mystery, ghosts, and history. Everything you could ask for!

I don't know how the author managed it, but this was romanticizing the black plague, as crazy as that sounds.

The first time I read this as a kid in middle school I think, I was so interested in the tallow candles and the cart carrying the dead through the streets, and just how people lived in the town and how life was when the black plague, and the little rhyme "ring around the roses" actually stemming from the symptoms of the plague. It was all so interesting, what with the ghost cat and the guy, though I wish there were some romance.
I always like a little romance in a book, whether it's adult or YA. It proves that if you're a good writer with good ideas you can make any subject romantic and interesting, it doesn't have to be dark and depressing, but this is just a great book. I love it, and I was lucky enough to find it in the library's book shop and I snatched up so I now own the copy I read as a kid.

Emily starts talking to these hallucinations and comes to the realization that history is alive on Hound Hill.

The reader is transported between time periods and forms a real connection to the problem Emily is having.
Is her house haunted, is she going crazy, why is she starting to feel so ill? Readers will be turning the pages to find out what happens to Emily and will likely figure out her fate before she does. Feb 23, Gail Morris rated it it was amazing. I very much enjoyed this story - it reminded me of a story I read as a child called, "Stephen" or "Steffan" I don't remember the spelling and I don't remember the author.
It was about a young prince from the 's being found in the 's by two children.
Stephen came and went between the two times much like the main character here that went to and fro from to It made me want to find the book from the library of my youth and read it again. Jun 03, Meredith rated it really liked it Shelves: historical-fiction , fantasy , scary. I loved, loved, loved the beginning and middle of this cool book about the plague in London. It was creepy and suspenseful and very enjoyable. I was a little disappointed by the ending, which is why I only gave it 4 stars. I can't decide if the ending is confusing or if it's just really abrupt.
Or maybe both. But still, the overall effect was very cool. Jan 09, Shankia Tinsley rated it really liked it Shelves: favorites. I read this book some years back, and to this day, I still remember it well. More than anything, what gets me is how the story has a mixture of various genres: mystery, fantasy, history, etc. I like stories that merge categories. I also like how--even though the story itself is fiction--it is based on events that actually happened years ago. I remember being disappointed that there wasn't any love in the story, though.
I wanted her and the guy to somehow end up together! I love this book! A girl in present day finds a ripple in time and begins to live in both the present time and the past, the days of the Black Plague. Each time she gets sent back to the past she stays longer and longer until she is there permanently. Something unresolved happened in the past and she has to figure out what it is. Sep 09, Christine Verstraete rated it it was amazing. I found this in a pile of books I was sorting out and almost set it aside. Then I saw it was set i n the time of plague in London, a topic I find interesting.
The teen in the book moves into a house where plague once broke out and finds herself among those able to see and feel the past. A fascinating and realistic approach to showing the horrors of the s in London. Fascinating read! May 15, Jennifer Hubble rated it really liked it. Pretty good and a quick read. It was about a girl who moved into a house on Hound Hill with her family and finds out she has the ability to see and time travel to the time of the black plauge in 17th century london. Kinda startling and sad at times but good if your looking for a light read.
