À propos

Readers of If I Stay and Elizabeth George will love Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly, author of Stepsister, These Shallow Graves, and the award-winning novel A Northern Light . Andi Alpers is on the edge. Shes angry at her father for leaving, angry at her mother for not being able to cope, and heartbroken by the loss of her younger brother, Truman. Rage and grief are destroying her. And her father has determined that accompanying him to Paris for winter break is the solution for everything. But Paris is a city of ghosts for Andi. And when she finds a centuries-old diary, the ghosts begin to walk off the page. Alexandrine, the owner of the journal, lived during the French Revolution. Shes angry too. Its the same fire that consumes Andi, and Andi finds comfort in it--until, on a midnight journey through the catacombs, words transcend paper and time, and the past becomes terrifyingly present. Revolution artfully weaves two girls stories into one unforgettable account of life, loss, and enduring love. Revolution spans centuries and vividly depicts the eternal struggles of the human heart.
