The Lovereading4Kids comment

A brilliant evocation of the utter devastation caused by The Black Death in 1349 which combines a remarkable optimism about human nature and morality in the midst of an epidemic on an exceptional scale. Isabel’s world collapses around her as the illness sweeps in and destroys the family and small community she has known. There is no escape. The only way to survive is to find exceptional inner courage which is exactly what Isabel does. Sally Nicholls weaves an imaginative and convincing fiction that brings a tragic episode of English history to life.

Synopsis

All Fall Down by Sally Nicholls

A heartbreaking account of one of the most terrifying events in history - the outbreak of the Black Death in 1349. When Isabel's Yorkshire village is devastated by the Black Death, it seems that the world is ending in horror and fear. But for the survivors of the terrible plague, a new and freer society will rise from the destruction of the feudal system that enslaved he family.

A powerful historical novel from one of today's most exciting young writers.

About the Author

Sally Nicholls

I was born in Stockton-on-Tees, just after midnight, in a thunderstorm. My father died when I was two, and my brother Ian and I were brought up my mother. I always wanted to write - when people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I used to say "I'm going to be a writer" - very definite.

I went to two secondary schools - a little Quaker school in North Yorkshire (where it was so cold that thick woolly jumpers were part of the school uniform) and a big comprehensive. I was very lonely at the little school, but I made friends at the comprehensive and got on all right. I didn't like being a teenager very much, though.

I now live in a little house in Oxford, writing stories, and trying to believe my luck.
