A mysterious outbreak of typhoid fever is sweeping turn-of-the-century New York. Every week more people fall ill, and despite thorough investigation, there’s no cause in sight. It’s not until the city’s most unlikely scientist — sixteen-year-old Prudence Galewski — takes a job as an assistant in a laboratory that the evidence begins to fall into place. It seems one person has worked in every home the fever has ravaged: Mary Mallon, an Irish immigrant dubbed “Typhoid Mary” by the press. Includes a historical note by the author.

I have a sad announcement to make; Sara and I have been talking and we’re going to put Traveling Arc Tours on hiatus. We’ve both been slammed by real life and unfortunately do not have the free time we did when we first started. It was a hard decision, but one we had to make. We will be finishing out all tours, but will not be accepting any new donations. We want to thank all of you for making this a fun experience and we hope to revive the tour site in the future.
P.S.: Fear not! Just because we’re going on hiatus doesn’t mean you can’t still join tours. Here are some other YA tour sites
One Arc Tours
Star Book Tours
Book It Forward Arc Tours
Around the World Tours
We Love YA Tours

When seventeen-year-old Ellie starts seeing reapers – monstrous creatures who devour humans and send their souls to Hell – she finds herself on the front lines of a supernatural war between archangels and the Fallen and faced with the possible destruction of her soul.
A mysterious boy named Will reveals she is the reincarnation of an ancient warrior, the only one capable of wielding swords of angelfire to fight the reapers, and he is an immortal sworn to protect her in battle. Now that Ellie’s powers have been awakened, a powerful reaper called Bastian has come forward to challenge her. He has employed a fierce assassin to eliminate her – an assassin who has already killed her once.
While balancing her dwindling social life and reaper-hunting duties, she and Will discover Bastian is searching for a dormant creature believed to be a true soul reaper. Bastian plans to use this weapon to ignite the End of Days and to destroy Ellie’s soul, ending her rebirth cycle forever. Now, she must face an army of Bastian’s most frightening reapers, prevent the soul reaper from consuming her soul, and uncover the secrets of her past lives – including truths that may be too frightening to remember.
