REVOLUTION by Jennifer Donnelly
When I think of Wishlists, I always have this book first thing on my mind. I cannot rave enough about how much I love Jennifer Donnelly ever since having read her magnificent novel ‘A Northern Light’, so her next book ‘Revolution’ is really high on my must-haves. Hopefully, I could score a copy before the year ends!
Revolution is a young adult historical fiction novel by Jennifer Donnelly about a girl named Andi Alpers who is struggling with drugs, thoughts of suicide, and the way her family has fallen apart after the death of her ten-year-old brother. When her father takes her with him to Paris on a business trip to ensure she works on her school thesis, Andi discovers a journal written by a girl her age, Alexandrine Paradis, two centuries earlier which has its own tragedies inside. Revolution was a Amazon Best Book of the Year (2010) and honored by Kirkus Reviews and School Library Journal; the audiobook version received a 2011 American Library Association Odyssey Honor.
