Sintesi dell'editore

What happens when a person's reputation has been forever damaged? This riveting biography of Mary Mallon by the Sibert medalist and Newbery Honor winner Susan Bartoletti looks beyond the tabloid scandal of Mary's controversial life. How she was treated by medical and legal officials reveals a lesser-known story of human and constitutional rights, entangled with the science of pathology and enduring questions about who Mary Mallon really was. How did her name become synonymous with deadly disease? And who is really responsible for the lasting legacy of Typhoid Mary?

Painful read for an 11 yr old

This was required summer reading for my son last year we read it together, we assumed it would eventually get good or have it’s purpose. Terrible choice for summer reading for a child.

very interesting story

I could sympathize with both Mary and those who were in harms way. Well told. The narration was excellent.

2017 Book Review

Good narrator, but very alarming to see multiple Constutional violations for American citizens in early 1900's.
