  1. If I Die Before I Wake The Flu Epidemic Diary of Fiona Macgregor is an enjoyable and emotionally engaging contribution to the Dear Canada series, although I would not call it a personal favourite With young Fiona Macgregor, author Jean Little has created a likable and winsome main character narrator, read fictional diarist Fiona is personable, a talented and observant budding writer, although also somewhat opinionated and mischievous and quite aware of and honest about both her strengths and wea [...]


  2. This book is from the Dear Canada series It is for young readers, but I really enjoyed it It is a compelling description of the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic that killed 50,000 Canadians My dad s oldest sister died of the flu in that year and left a husband three young children She is buried in Banff, Alberta I have seen her grave maker there I death certificate was not issued as they could not keep up with the number of deaths Her husband took the children back to England afterward.


  3. Fiona can barely remember life before a World War I, but just as it seems the war might be almost over, thousands of people are dying of the Spanish Flu What s going to happen to her family Took a little while to get going, but great endearing characters and pretty compelling view of the flu The last third did a great job dealing with the aftermath I just wish the C story of Father and Aunt didn t feel so shoehorned in It wasn t introduced well, and hen it became like, on, stories A and an are [...]


  4. Beautifully bound in a soft unevenly edged journal and told with humour, innocence, intimacy and affection, the daily entries of a fictional twelve year old disclose the spellbinding details of life during the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918 19.You can listen in on our chat about this book on ourJust One More Book Children s Book Podcast.


  5. This one is my 3rd favourite Dear Canada book after No Safe Harbour and Banished from Our Home I enjoyed learning about the scary influenza epidemic that happened in 1918 all over North America I had lots of information and descriptions My favourite part was on November 11th, 1918, when WWI ended Very, very good read.






  6. Jean Little s contributions to this series are exceptional and If I Die Before I Wake is no different Little portrays life in 1918 Toronto vividly The Spanish Flu Pandemic is, of course, the main theme but various other topics are also explored the last year of WWI, Armistice Day, class distinctions, women doctors and the growing changes in women s freedom General everyday life is explored deeply showing the great conveniences now available since the parent grandparent s Victorian days and the h [...]


  7. Wonderful story Here are three observations.1 The story was well written and I saw many different things from the time period.2 The epilogue did not end up completely as I hoped It would have wrapped up nicer for me if Fiona had a daughter and other small things I am not detracting from my rating because of this, however.3 Although I wished the historical note focused a little worldwide and had the correct death estimation, it overall reminded me of the extended essay I wrote on the topic I ac [...]


  8. One of my favourites in the Dear Canada series Several years ago, I read a book based on a true story called Five Pennies A Prairie Boy s Story, and in that book they talked about this certain type of flu that I d never heard of, and how it affected their family When I read this, I was able to put together that it was the Spanish Flu and that it was during the 1918 epidemic, so that was really interesting for me to learn about This is an absolutely heartbreaking event in history, and we should a [...]


  9. Quite enjoyed this book I was looking for a novel with the influenza of 1918 and was only able to find a juvenile fiction book, one of the Dear Canada series It is written as a dairy of a twelve year old girl, Fiona The year is 1918, the war is still on Fiona has an identical twin, Fanny, two older sisters and one younger brother Her mother died shortly after her brother, Theodore was born As the war comes to an end, there is an outbreak of the Spanish Influenza It s a great story for young chil [...]


  10. I was feeling guilty about never having read anything by Jean Little, a fellow Guelphite, and I happened upon this book in the children s section of the library It was an educational, engaging read and I thoroughly enjoyed it, despite the fact I m an adult I would like to read in this series and look forward also to reading by Little.


  11. Great book It completely holds the feeling of loss of hope, and human life Fiona lives with her large family,but when the war ends and a deadly disease starts spreading through Fiona s village People are worried This is a great book, and anyone reading this I recommend this to you Read this book


  12. In this book Fiona and her twin sister Fanny are in the middle of a city with a lot of people who are catching a flu Then Fanny and Jemma catch it Jemma dies, but Fanny survives Now everyone needs some very happy mirical to help them feel better again I learned things that seem like they can t get better can get better


  13. Overall I enjoyed it, but I feel like the historical event ended up being pushed to the background a lot during the story I mean, realism is a thing a real twelve year old would have loads to say about her family and less to say about every single detail of the outbreak but since the book was supposed to focus on the flu epidemic, I feel like it lacked just a bit.


  14. Heart breaking yet so true to life I really enjoy the way Jean Little writes and her strong emphasis on families The adult themes in this narrative appealed to me too as though the author is trusting the reader to be mature enough to handle these things in ways that other authors might want to be sheltering of.


  15. Another book from the Dear Canada series that features lively characters and a heartwarming story for the readers If I Die Before I Wake is about the 1918 1919 flu epidemic that spread across the world and the devastation that it left for families of those affected This book is a really good read as it provokes the readers emotions and leaves a spot in their hearts for the Macgregor family.


  16. If I Die Before I Wake is another great story in the Dear Canada series from the author, Jean Little.I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about Canada s history or of the Flu Epidemic of 1918 With Jean Little s writing abilities and research put into this book, she has created such an amazing story that leaps of the page and engages with the reader.


  17. Great read, as always Dear Canada series Gotta love em This was about the Spanish Flu set in Toronto in 1918 I also love the story around the story how girls and women especially, lived in those years, right in my region.


  18. I feel like I ve read this a long time ago because I remember the aunt and dad in love I feel like the flu didn t have much connection or tragedy because only one of them died but maybe that is me being callous.


  19. The MIT tragic and heart warming historical fiction novel I have lived the series for so long Fiona expresses her life so detailed in the flu epidemic A definite suggestion for those who like historical fiction


  20. Reading this one reminded me how glad I am to have discovered the Dear Canada seriesA very sweet story with wonderful characters.


  21. This book is a good way to introduce students to the Flu Epidemic of 1918 It is heartbreaking, but offers rays of hope.




  22. SO great So Canadian Three sets of twins I love how the Canadian ones have Epilogues, I don t think all of the Dear America books had them.


  23. This was a very good book especially at the end when Father and Aunt got married I am looking forward to reading Dear Canada books in the future.
