Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – Book Review

Anna and the French Kiss

Rating: 5/5 stars

Goodreads Description:

Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris–until she meets Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all…including a serious girlfriend.

But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss? 

My Review:

This book was a breath of fresh air.  I’ve had it on my bookshelf for a while and I finally took the time to read it, and so glad I did.  It was easy to lose myself in this fun and sweet romance with characters who were likable and made me want to read more.

Anna comes from Atlanta, Georgia and her parents are divorced.  Her father is a famous author whose books get made into movies (very much like Nicholas Sparks) and he enrolls her in a boarding school in Paris, France.  She is so upset about this at first, being sent away from everything and everyone she knows.  On top of that she doesn’t speak a word of French.

Anna soon finds a group of friends and slowly comes to find that Paris isn’t as bad as she first thought.  She starts to have feelings for Etienne St. Clair, a British-American student who has a girlfriend and Anna has a love interest back home.  I loved how this tension and their interactions played out.  It created a nice conflict and I loved how the storyline resolved itself.

This is a sweet and quick read that I highly recommend.
