Waiting On Wednesday: REVOLUTION by Jennifer Donnelly

I must confess I own all the Jennifer Donnelly books (Tea Rose, Winter Rose, Northern Light), but I haven't read any of them yet - although I really, really want to as they sound fantastic! The same goes for her next book, REVOLUTION, which is due in September! Moreover, I love the cover - I think it's her best one yet and it would definitely catch my attention in a bookshop!


REVOLUTION
by Jennifer Donnelly
[28th September 2010]
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.
Aah, how awesome does this sound?! I can't wait that long, I need this book in my life *now*! :D
