Fever

The Fever by Megan Abbott.

A teen girl suffers a seizure at school. Then another one does. Then another.

The Nash family is close. Tom is a popular teacher, a father to two teens: Eli, a hockey star and girl magnet, and his sister Deenie, a diligent student. Their seeming stability 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 builds, a series of tightly held secrets emerge, threatening to unravel friendships, families and the town’s fragile idea of security.

Former Grosse Pointe resident and Edgar winner Megan Abbott has received many accolades for her newest book.  Fox 2000 has optioned the film rights for her previous book, Dare Me.
