Revolution Giveaway! - Lee Hyat

Random House Children’s Books is publishing Jennifer Donnelly’s first young adult novel in six years since her L.A. Times Book Prize for Young Adult literature recipient, A Northern Light. Contemporary Brooklyn and the brutality of Revolutionary Paris converge seamlessly in her new novel, REVOLUTION (Delacorte Press / on sale October 12, 2010 / $17.99)—a breathtaking novel that weaves two girls’ stories into one remarkable account of life, loss, and enduring love. Donnelly’s passion for history and hands-on research shine brightly from the pages of REVOLUTION. Through Andi and Alexandrine, Donnelly explores the importance and power of art and music, takes on families in crisis, mental illness, and racial and class inequality.
REVOLUTION is a critical hit!

In a starred review, School Library Journal said, “Revolution is a sumptuous feast of a novel, rich in mood, character, and emotion.” In another starred review, Kirkus Reviews raved, “The novel is rich with detail, and both the Brooklyn and Paris settings provide important grounding for the haunting and beautifully told story.”

REVOLUTION is a hit with booksellers The novel has received incredible support from all channels!

REVOLUTION was #1 on the Autumn 2010 Kids' Indie Next List—"Inspired Recommendations for Kids from Indie Booksellers.”
