When Hannah's parents go to the
war, Hannah and her sisters have to go to their aunt, Tanta Rose,
and her friend, Vashti. Since Vashti doesn't like Hannah or her sisters,
they stay out of Vashti' s way. When the deadly flu sweeps through
the town, Tanta Rose wants Hannah and her sisters to go to a different
state so they won't get the flu. Unfortunately, Vashti won't allow
it. One day, Tanta Rose comes home from work with the flu.
During the night, Hannah's sisters get it, too. Very late that same
night, Tanta Rose dies. Then Vashti tells Hannah to leave the state.
On the train, Hannah gets a bad case of the flu. She is rushed into
a packed hospital. While there, she meets Klaus Gerhard. After
she is well enough to leave the hospital, she goes to live with Klaus.
While she is living with Klaus, eating and drinking the "mountain food",
she recovers from the flu. A while after she recovers, she decides
she's going back to find her sisters and make sure they're alive.
It's a long, hard trip though. Will she make it?
Hannah is a teenage girl who
has curly brown hair and loves to draw. She has two sisters and lives
with her aunt. She sells newspapers with Chip Pilasky. Her
parents went to war in 1918.
