CHASING SECRETS, by Gennifer Choldenko


The story: In 1900, the black plague hits San Francisco–but no one’s talking about it, no one’s warning people to take caution, no one seems to care. Has Lizzie stumbled upon a conspiracy to keep the truth from the public, just so a set of greedy millionaires can keep doing business as usual? And what can one girl – plus the Chinese kid hiding out in the attic – do about it?

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If you’re a kid who likes historical fiction, you’ll enjoy this fast-moving mystery story about a girl, a boy, and a whole bunch of dead rats.  (!!!)
