Anna and the French Kiss
By: 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?
when i read a teen romance book im not searching for that typical book love, when that über hot guy meets that girl, she fall in love with him, but won't confess it to herself, until the end of the book, etc. and that's it, then they get together, ad everything is good. no, that is not what i wan't to read about.
in Anna ad the French iss i liked the fact that they acted like normal teenagers. they showed the differences between teenagers, that some are more grown up than others, and that teenagers don't usually see their wrongs.
I also think the author did a marvelous job when describing the environment. She painted up Paris is the most beautiful way. although i have already been to Paris twice, I wan't to go there again, just to be able to see the city the way Perkins see's It. throe her eyes.
