Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly

Reviewed By: R.W.
Revolution is a very intriguing book that follows a high school senior, Andi, living in the current time, as well as a girl, Alexandrine, living in France during the French Revolution, as told through her diary. The story is compelling and suspenseful. While it is not quite a realistic story, especially towards the end, it is not really fantasy nor sci-fi. It's just one of those unique books that one might not think to read, but will be glad when they do.
Why I Picked it Up: I was in Barnes and Noble with a gift card, and it seemed like an interesting subject and plot. I had heard that someone somewhere had thought it was good, but none of my friends had heard of it before. I was in need of something good to read, and it seemed like a good fit.
Why I Finished It: As the book began, I wasn't sure it was the kind of book that I normally like. But it was just so well-written that I had to continue. As the story continued, I got more and more invested in it, and I just couldn't put it down. I thoroughly enjoyed it the whole time I was reading it.
I’d Give this Book To: I would recommend this book for teens who have an interest in historical fiction or just want to read a good book. A warning, though, that it is not for the faint of heart.
