about

Lisette Beaucaire was angry when her parents sent her away from Paris that September day in 1940. And although she knew that with the Nazis occupying the city she'd be safer at her Aunt Josephine's farm in the Dordogne valley, Lisette resented her "exile." She'd miss her friends and the excitement of being thirteen and starting a new school. Instead she'd have nothing to do but amuse her little cousin Cecile. That's what Lisette thought, but she soon found out that she wasn't the only visitor at the farmhouse. And then she encountered Gerard, a visitor from a long time ago, who proved to be a valiant ally at a crucial moment for the people who lived in the farmhouse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Witty and original. One of those special books you can read over and over again. The heroine feels like an old friend; Velde crafts her realistically and sympathetically, and she doesn't even moon over boys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the finest books I’ve read!!! In Heir Apparent Vivian Vande Velde creates a medieval atmosphere coupled with a futuristic feel as she tells a story of perseverance, betrayal and wit. Along with a virtual reality gaming center, a head-chopping statue, and a strong female heroine Heir Apparent is a brilliant science fiction/ fantasy story. Sprinkled with a sizable amount of humor, this is the ideal book for someone that is looking for a casual read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heir Apparent Review This was one of those books that you just cannot put down. It is a hilarious and suspenseful book that only gets better as you go. It took me like Harry Potter did. I encourage everyone to at least check it out.
