Farrar Straus & Giroux (J). Hardcover. 0374369097 Editorial Reviews\n\nFrom Publishers Weekly\nShattered by the recent death of her twin sister, 17-year-old Hannah has little hope that a family vacation to Lascaux, France, site of the famous cave paintings, will lift her spirits. The last thing she expects is to fall in love with a Gypsy. Hannah, however, cannot help being attracted to Stefan Kremo, a professional juggler she meets on a river bank. Stefan, a member of a traveling circus, helps Hannah rediscover a psychological dexterity she has not experienced since the night her sister was killed. The backdrop of mysterious caves serves not only as a romantic landscape but also as a connection to Hannah's subconscious yearnings. Through a cycle of dreams about a primitive girl creating paintings on stone, Hannah relives the tragedies of her past and learns how to survive the present. Both a love story and a study of grief, Ferris's (Relative Strangers) tender novel celebrates the regenerating power of love and the resiliency of the spirit. Ages 12-up.\nCopyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.\n\nFrom School Library Journal\nGrade 8-10?Hannah Flood, 17, and her parents learn how to live after the death of Hannah's identical twin sister. On a cathartic holiday in the Lascaux region of France, they each come to terms with their grief, and readers are left with the impression that they will begin to function again as a cohesive family unit. The setting is just unusual enough, and the supporting characters just original enough to elevate this work above formulaic YA fare. Hannah meets Stefan, a gypsy circus performer who re-opens her heart. She can then begin to accept the loss of her sister. There are some delightful scenes between Hannah and Stefan that offer just the right amount of romance to keep teenagers interested. None of the characters are stereotypes: even Hannah's parents are dynamic and real. Their foibles are clearly articulated, and the troubles she experiences with them extend from their personalities and events. Some interesting factual information about the region flows effortlessly within the context of the novel. Another unusual component is a series of dreams in which Hannah seems to experience events in the life of an ancient cave painter. The insight gained from them moves her towards healing. The conclusion, when Hannah's mother begins to thaw and to reach for her surviving daughter, seems a bit contrived, and even rushed, but it is satisfying.?Lucinda Lockwood, Thomas Haney Secondary School, Maple Ridge, BC\nCopyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc. .
