Anna and the French Kiss - Stephanie Perkins - Review
Because Stephanie Perkins is coming to Kepler's on April 18th as part of our YA Extravaganza I went looking for my review of the book and realized i haven't posted it. SO - better late than never! However, can we say EXCITED!
Paris is a magical city so who wouldn't be happy at the thought of spending a year abroad studying there? Well, it turns out that Anna would prefer to stay in Atlanta with her friends, her crush, her job, and her family. But Anna's father thinks this will be good for her so Anna finds herself in the American school in Paris, all alone, speaking no French, and homesick. Fortunately she meets some new people who force her to leave her room and discover the beauties of the city. The film buff in her is dazzled by how many cinemas there are in Paris - and then there is Etienne St Clair...
This is such a feel good book, soaked in the sights and smells of Paris and falling in love. It is light-hearted, joyous, and adorable.
