Rage and grief are destroying her. And her father has determined that accompanying him to Paris for winter break is the solution for everything.
But Paris is a city of ghosts for Andi. And when she finds a centuries-old diary, the ghosts begin to walk off the page. Alexandrine, the owner of the journal, lived during the French Revolution. She s angry too.
