Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (Review)

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Number of Pages: 372
For ages 14+ for drinking,a few instances of strong language, and mild sexual content

"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 √Čtienne St. Claire: 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?" -Goodreads

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. I don't even know where to start with this book... I LOVED IT!!! I don't think I found one bad thing in this book, and I was hooked from the beginning. The characters were perfect and completely believable.

Anna is a seventeen year old girl whose father decides to send her to a school in Paris, France. I loved Anna from the very beginning. Her problems were then my problems while I was reading. I thought Anna was funny and witty.

√Čtienne... ahhhh I love that boy to pieces. I wish he was real. He is the best boy fictional character I have ever read about. I liked that even though he was BEYOND adorable he still had flaws. He wasn't even close to being a jerk. I loved that he was American,English, and lived in France. He was also a perfect gentleman.

I wanted this book to go on forever I loved it so much. Stephanie is an ABSOLUTE genius! She has created a boy that all teenage girls would drool over, and a girl all girls can relate too!

The ending was perfect! There wasn't a better way to write it. When it ended I WAS SO DEPRESSED!! Stephanie if you read this.. (I don't even know if ANYONE reads this..) Please, please, please write more about Anna and √Čtienne!

I give this book 5 out of 5 diva crowns. It couldn't have been any better than it already is. EXCEPTIONAL!

I agree, J. This book was about as close to perfection as I've ever read, and I too felt SO SAD when I put it down. I miss them!
