I thought that since in was in Teen Vogue and Seventeen in ads everywhere I looked that it wouldn't be the greatest French History Fiction ever ; But it is. It's seriously good. My best friend almost stole the whole dang thing out of my hands while I was reading it.
The author is Jennifer Donelly has other books and she's won a few major awards. She has a wonderful imagination. She won a award for "A Gathering Light" which I have not read yet but plan to.
