D IS PROBABLY THE BEST ANSWER...
The correct answer is “Mattie's perspective on the events of 1793 gives readers an understanding of the experiences and uneasiness of the time”. In her book named “Fever 1793” (2000), Laurie Halse Anderson narrates about a girl named Matilda “Mattie” Cook who goes through the yellow fever epidemic in Philadelphia in 1793. In general, the use of first-person point of view in the narratives gives the reader a glimpse into the inner feelings of the character and that is the case in “Fever 1793”. Matilda "Mattie" Cook eyewitnesses the horrible events happening around her because of the fever and the readers can perceive this through the narrative point of view (first-person) that allows them to register every emotion and thought on the part of the narrator.
