Summary
An angry, grieving seventeen-year-old musician facing expulsion from her prestigious Brooklyn private school travels to Paris to complete a school assignment and uncovers a diary written during the French revolution by a young actress attempting to help a tortured, imprisoned little boy--Louis Charles, the lost king of France
Summary
Andi Alpers is so full of grief, rage, and antidepressants that nothing matters to her anymore -- nothing except playing guitar and taking care of her severely depressed mother. She's on the verge of being expelled from her exclusive prep school when her distant father forces Andi to accompany him on a trip to Paris. In Paris, Andi finds the diary of Alexandrine, a young woman who lived during the French Revolution. She becomes obsessed with Alexandrine's life and the historical mystery it could solve. -- Description by Rebecca Honeycutt
