Reviews for Revolution
Reviewed by LadyJay for TeensReadToo.com
Andi Alpers is angry. Angry at her father for abandoning their family; angry at her mother who can't seem to keep it together; angry at herself for being the one who let it get to this point. Andi is imploding - all because she thinks she let her younger brother, Truman, die.
Her social life is non-existent, her grades are slipping into oblivion, and she has almost given up on the one thing that she truly loves the most, music. Grief-stricken, Andi is on the verge of being expelled from the prestigious school she attends.
Because of this, Andi's father intervenes and whisks her away to Paris where he is working on a ground-breaking project. Andi has absolutely no idea how much Paris, its history, and her father's project will change her life......for the better.
Jennifer Donnelly has done an exceptional job of intertwining historical fact with a contemporary tale. Andi is thrust into the life of Alexandrine Paradis, a girl who lived during the time of Marie Antoinette and the French Revolution. Andi feels a connection with Alexandrine while reading her diary. Alexandrine's words resonate within her, slowly turning her naïve fascination into obsession.
Much like A NORTHERN LIGHT, this story will grip you from the very beginning and not let go until the last page is turned. I highly recommend this novel. It is truly an excellent story.
