Read the story of one youngster's life in turbulent times, then flip the book and find out firsthand how another child reacts to the conclusion of events--with very different feelings and ideas! Rachel is a young girl living in London in 1665. The dreaded disease, the plague, is taking hold of the city, and everyone is fearful for his or her life. Rachel and her best friend, Robert, worry they might be next in line. Then the unthinkable happens--Rachel becomes infected . . . Robert's father forbids him to see his best friend, Rachel, in case he falls victim to the plague too. But Robert won't just sit back and let his friend die. Can their friendship survive during this dark, dark hour in England's history?show more
