Book Worth Reading: REVOLUTION by Jennifer Donnelly

Who doesn't love a good page turner?  Last year, I read Jennifer Donnelly's A Northern Light, which in the end I did decide was a good book, but it probably took me a few weeks to get through it--not exactly one I couldn't bear to put down.

From the first page of her new book Revolution I was hooked.  Even though it was quite a bit longer than her other book, I easily knocked it out in less than a week.  It has so many elements that I am drawn too:  a dark, edgy, self destructive main character with a mysterious past;  a peek into the lives of the gossip girl style, too rich, Upper East Side teens; a ghost story like quality; time travel; and the contrast between the current racial tensions and violence in Paris and the blood and gore of the French Revolution.

If you want to read for fun, check this one out.  Let me know if you like it!
