Early Praise for REVOLUTION

Dear Readers,

Advance Reader Copies of Revolution have gone out to booksellers and here are some early reviews. Suzanna, Sarah and Angela – thank you so much! I’m so pleased that you enjoyed the book!

“How much did I love Jennifer Donnelly's Revolution? So much that I can't even describe it. This book is simply brilliant; a page-turner with an amazingly complicated protagonist and a pitch-perfect mix of the contemporary with the historical. Revolution is not to be missed; this tour de force from Jennifer Donnelly is sure to cement her as a star writer in the YA market.”
—Suzanna Hermans, Oblong Books & Music, Rhinebeck, NY

"A silver key worn on a red ribbon.  A diary lost for two hundred years.   Andi, a broken girl in Manhattan, brash and desolate.  Alex, a betrayed girl in Paris, heartsick and fearless.  REVOLUTION is an epic story about truth and forgiveness, about music and history, about fraternity and liberty, about family and blood.   Andi's narration swept me off the page and into her world, from halls of her snide prep school to the darkest catacombs beneath Paris, and I rooted for her every step of the way.  This beautiful novel deserves its own fireworks display, and if REVOLUTION had a soundtrack, I would put it on repeat."
—Sarah Todd, bookseller from Children’s Book World in Haverford, PA

 “What begins as an emotional, contemporary teen drama becomes so much more as Donnelly conflates the worlds of two characters separated by over two hundred years.  The story of Andi and Alex is engrossing, terrifying, heartbreaking and meaningful. Donnelly's artful, experienced treatment of the French Revolution combined with spot-on contemporary writing is sure to garner Donnelly new fans.
—Angela Sherrill, 57th Street Books, Chicago, IL

With best wishes,
Jennifer Donnelly
