I give this book five stars! Julie Chibbaro hooked me into the story immediately! Deadly is about a young girl named Prudence Galewski who desires most to be a scientist, although in New York in 1906, a woman studying in the sciences is rare and frowned upon. Prudence tries to prove to herself and everyone that she will follow her dreams and succeed in her profession. When she quits school to be an assistant for a man named Mr. Soper, she goes on an adventure to cure and find the reason why diseases start and/or spread. On the way to her future, she even finds a woman doctor that assists her at studying in order to go to medical school.
