Description

Andi lives in New York and is dealing with the emotional turmoil of her younger brother's accidental death. Alex lives in Paris and is a companion to the dauphin, the young son of Marie-Antoinette and Louis XVI, during the violent days of the French Revolution. When Andi is sent to Paris to get her out of the trouble she's so easily enveloped by in New York, their two stories collide, and Andi finds a way to reconcile herself not only to her past but also to her future. This is a heart-wrenchingly beautiful, evocative portrait of lives torn apart by grief and mended by love.show more

Review quote

Praise for Revolution: 'Intelligent, absorbing and original ... my book of the month - if not the year' Fiona Noble, The Bookseller 'A gripping if gritty read for teenagers ... powerful, beautifully written and all absorbing, and on the way the reader learns a great deal about the Revolution' Spectator 'A sophisticated, crossover novel ... This is a haunting, dark, complex mystery, leavened by flashes of humour, about the redemptive power of love and (in the other sense of "revolution") the ways in which things come round. This historical novel demonstrates that, however technology changes, good story-telling endures' Sunday Times 'Rich and ambitious ... A great example of young adult fiction: beautifully written and thoroughly researched ... there is an emotional vividness and a delight in story that will speak strongly to teenagers' Guardianshow more
