OLDFIELD, Pamela (2008), My story: The Great Plague, Scholastic

Cristina Campos Carballo, 2° ESO A

It’s 1665 and Alice comes back to London and hears about the plague. Every day more red crosses appear on the doors and the plague is spreading faster and faster. When suddenly her aunt is struck with the plague and her papa is missing, she makes a decision that could change her forever.

Alice is a sort of gossipy girl, who can’t dance or embroider and sometimes she acts stuck-up, especially when talking about her cousins. Her personality later takes a 180º change for the better.

The book talks about human selflessness and loyalty even in a life or death situation.

I recommend this book to History fans. I give it 3/5 stars.
