Book: Anna and the French Kiss
Author: Stephanie Perkins
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 Etienne St. Clair: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home.
As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near - misses end with the French kiss Anna - and readers - have long awaited?
I had been wanting to read this book for a long time, but I didn't think it'd be anything special. But let me just say, this book was special. It turned out to be an amazing, funny, beautiful read. The story grasped me from the very beginning, Anna's charm and humor made me never want to put the book down. And of course, St. Clair was amazing too. He was hilarious and such a nice guy. Plus, he felt real and not just another perfect fictional guy who tried too hard. He was just St. Clair, and he was amazing. The story's pacing was just right, I thought. I was never bored in the book, in fact I was so intrigued that I stayed up late on a school night. That says something right there. I know I've said this a lot, but seriously, this book is hilarious. Stephanie Perkins managed to make me laugh at every second in the book. But aside from the comedy, this book had a great plot line. And even though it seems like a boring story, it's not. It takes a great author to turn something that seems boring to something extraordinary. And Stephanie Perkins did just that. She made me fall in love with the book.
This might be a short review, but don't focus on that, just go and read the book!
