Wow. I've had this book on my night stand for about a month now, waiting to be read. I wanted to read it SO BADLY but it was one of those things that since I've wanted to read it for a while, I was sort of scared to. But finally, I did. And it absolutely lived up to my expectations. I felt so bad for Andi that I cried at one point. It's a book that pulls you in and doesn't let go until you finish.

Recommends it for: 14+ who like romance and action
Recommended to Candy by: YA Librarian and The Young Adult Historical Fiction Society
This was a really well written book. Not only was it a story of pain/loss, romance, and friendship but it was also an incredible history lesson. This book deserves a 4 so don't take my grade at face value. It is very well written, in fact, this is probably a great book for a high school reading list. I was just in the mood for something different when I read it.
An exceptional read! The best story I have read on the French Revolution thus far. Dealing with the French Revolution you know it will be sad and disturbing but Andy's life was also sad and disturbing. I didn't feel that the profanity that was used in the book was necessary. The book didn't need it.

The best line of the book and I had to share was "The world goes on stupid and brutal but I do not." That in itself should make you want to read this book to find out what exactly she meant.

Wonderful read. Proves that YA fiction can be as literate and daring as general fiction.
