"Revolution" by Jennifer Donnelly

Rating: Excellent! (5)

Revolution  by  Jennifer Donnelly

When you first read the synopsis, you think to yourself there is no way you can feel any sympathy for the main character, Andi Alpers. She is a girl who was brought up in a privileged society in Brooklyn and now is being whisked away to Paris in order to stay with her father. However, soon you start to feel sympathy for her and what she has been through.

You are also taken back to the French Revolution to experience the life of Alexandrine Paradis who soon start to admire.

Revolution is a wonderful written book that manages to weave together two girls from different centuries in a manner that will keep you hooked until the end of the book.
