Anna and the French Kiss by: Stephanie Perkins
5 Out of 5 Stars
Anna and the French Kiss was just as spectacular as everyone says it is! What a way to start off 2011. I stayed up pretty much all night one night reading this book because i simply couldn't put it down!!! Etienne St. Clair made my heart melt and i honestly can say i think i've experienced my first literary crush!
Anna is sent off to a boarding school in Paris, and while she is hesistant and not wanting to leave her school back home, her best friend Bridge, and her new boy toy Toph, her parents insist that she needs to go abroad. She immedietly is thrown into a new culture and you follow her journeys and struggles through a different culture. Her life back home moves fast ahead without her, and her friends back home change just as quickly as she is changing abroad.
I cannot say enough good things about this book, it could have been predictable and subpar with the storyline, but Stephanie Perkins takes you right along side Anna and her Journey and leaves you at the edge of seat watching her love and life in Paris unfold.
