The novel written with a teen adult protagonist will also appeal to adults. Andi Alpers is failing her classes in her last year at a prestigious private school in Brooklyn, NY. She is angry at her father for leaving, anxious for her mother who is not coping well and deeply saddened by the death of her younger brother. She accompanies her father, a famous scientist, to Paris for winter break to work on her graduation thesis. There she discovers the diary of Alexandrine Paradis who lived two centuries earlier during the French Revolution. Alexandrine’s words tell a story that transcends time and, at one point, become terrifyingly real.
