Title: Starry Nights
Author: Daisy Whitney
Release Date: September 3, 2013
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Julien is a romantic—he loves spending his free time at the museum
poring over the great works of the Impressionists. But one night, a
peach falls out of a Cezanne, Degas ballerinas dance across the floor,
and Julien is not hallucinating.
The art is reacting to a curse
that trapped a beautiful girl, Clio, in a painting forever. Julien has a
chance to free Clio and he can't help but fall in love with her. But
love is a curse in its own right. And soon paintings begin to bleed and
disappear. Together Julien and Clio must save the world's greatest art .
. . at the expense of the greatest love they've ever known.
a master painter herself, Daisy Whitney brings inordinate talent and
ingenuity to this romantic, suspenseful, and sophisticated new novel. A
beautifully decorated package makes it a must-own in print.
Recently I read Daisy Whitney's latest contemporary YA and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would (but I'm not a big contemporary reader). This sounds like it's a bit more up my alley. I like it when books take place outside of the US, there's so much more than just New York or L.A. I've been to the National Gallery in London and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and I just love the idea of artwork coming to life. :)
