Review: Anna and the French Kiss

Anna and the French Kiss
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 STARS to Paris and the love it can spawn….

Ah, Par-ee. Beautiful at every turn. Historic. Romantic. Le Tower Eiffel. Croissant. Cafe. Oui?

Well, when Anna arrives for her senior year of high school, she doesn’t see it. I mean, it’s her senior year, and her dad shipped her off to a whole other world instead of letting her stay in Georgia with her friends and family. But, that’s okay. She makes a few friends at the School of America in Paris. (SOAP)

One of them meets her that first night because Anna is upset and crying over being abandoned in Paris…Meredith. Through her, she befriends Josh, Rashmi, and Etienne St. Clair.

He’s the one…Etienne, or St. Clair as everyone calls him. The boy with a French name, a British accent (yes, girls, you can melt) from America. And by he’s the one, I mean, he’s the one who gets Anna out. He takes her on tours of the City of Lights. Places she’s dreamed of, places she never thought to go…and she gets a little crush on him. But then so does the rest of the school.

The problem? She has this guy back home…Toph. The problem is, they weren’t really a thing, but they did kiss…and left it like that when she went off to school, leaving Anna confused. St. Clair also has a girlfriend at a college not too far from SOAP. It doesn’t bode well for a fling in the City of Romance for the two.

And that’s where the story shines. It’s this whole struggle of will they or won’t they or what would happen ifs… This was supposed to be my night read because Replica I have in hardback and I can’t see it in the dark…but I wound up reading this every chance I had to read anything. (Sorry, Lauren Oliver…it was good drama and I got addicted too fast.)

LOVED this story so much! I definitely recommend this one for a read.
