From the Publisher
Annotation The intertwining stories of two girls over two centuries apart create not only a compelling read, but a touching narrative about the pain of loss and change no matter the century or historical context. In modern-day Brooklyn, Andi Alpers is struggling with her parents' divorce and the loss of her brother. After almost being expelled from her fancy private school, Andi must go with her father to Paris for Christmas to research a French composer. Once there, she discovers Alexandrine Pardis's ancient diary from the time of the French Revolution. Although their circumstances are different, Andi finds solace in Alexandrine's words. However, a terrifying shift occurs when Andi gets more deeply involved with the diary. Jennifer Donnelly is the author of A NORTHERN LIGHT, a 2004 Printz Honor Book.
Editors Note BROOKLYN: Andi Alpers is on the edge. She’s 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 she’s about to be expelled from Brooklyn Heights’ most prestigious private school when her father intervenes. Now Andi must accompany him to Paris for winter break. PARIS: Alexandrine Paradis lived over two centuries ago. She dreamed of making her mark on the Paris stage, but a fateful encounter with a doomed prince of France cast her in a tragic role she didn’t want—and couldn’t escape. Two girls, two centuries apart. One never knowing the other. But when Andi finds Alexandrine’s diary, she recognizes something in her words and is moved to the point of obsession. There’s comfort and distraction for Andi in the journal’s antique pages—until, on a midnight journey through the catacombs of Paris, Alexandrine’s words transcend paper and time, and the past becomes suddenly, terrifyingly present. Jennifer Donnelly, author of the award-winning novel A Northern Light, 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.From the Hardcover edition.
