Someone once said that “French is the language that turns dirt into romance.” Valentin knew this to be true because he lived in Paris, and when he wasn’t feeling romantic, he was feeling like dirt.
from prologue of Another Faust by Daniel and Dina Nayeri

I cheated and copied a random passage from the Prologue in text form since I'm listening to the audio version. This book works amazingly well in audio form, especially since the narrator has an amazing range of accents for each of the characters...though they eventually all convert to "American" accents about a few chapters in. Really interesting concepts in this book, looking at the teenage desperation for beauty, love, and fame and how far teens would go to achieve them. I'm quite taken with every single one of the children, and even the "evil" Madame Vileroy. Hoping to finish listening to this by the end of the week and get a review up soon =)
