Anna and the French Kiss

Anna and the French Kiss
By Stephanie Perkins


Summary:

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?

4/5 Stars

 SPOILER ALERT

You guys are probably getting tired of reading romance book reviews from me so... IM SORRY! But don't expect me to stop anytime soon. Ok, before I start going into this, I just have to get this out here... do you guys remember my review on Love and Gelato??? THIS BOOK HAS THE EXACT SAME PLOT!! What??? Don't believe me? (The parent forces teenage daughter to move from U.S. to European country by themselves, they hate it at first and want to go back to their best friend in the U.S. BUT! Then they meet CUTE BOY!!! And everything changes! EXCEPT! The boy has a beautiful girlfriend that he is in a serious relationship with! Oh no! They keep hanging out and he shows her the beauty of the country and the girlfriend gets jealous... and throughout this there is a random side boy who totally wants to be with her. She thinks that he doesn't like her... and they have a big fight... but right after he breaks up with his girlfriend (she doesn't know!) Then they talk and make up and end up together) See what I mean? okok, I'm not complaining though, both were good books, sooo. Alright, I'm just gonna say it, I always root for the random side boy.. they're usually really nice and want to be with her?? Not so much in this book but whatever. I actually really liked this book and found myself finishing it in a few days. It did have some interesting parts that made it different from most teenage romance books ( I know I made it sound really bad), so don't totally give up on it! However, while I'm at it, I did think the whole "I hate my dad" was kind of weak.. I thought that Étienne was going to make her realize that she actually loves her dad, cause I mean he really didn't nothing wrong that whole time. The only argument against him was that he wrote bad books, and that he sent her to Paris (that she ended up liking..?) So idk.. I was kind of confused about that.. especially when Étienne's father was so horrible. Anyway, if you're like me and you really like romance books then go ahead and give this one a try!
