Title: Anna and the French Kiss
Author: Stephanie Perkins
Publisher: Dutton Books
Release Date: December 2, 2010
Description from Goodreads: 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. Smart, charming, beautiful, Etienne 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?
I'd heard many people praising this book, and as I started liking contemporary more and more, I decided to pick it up. I am now one of those people who will forever praise Stephanie Perkins and her Anna.
Having never been to a foreign country, reading about Anna and her experiences in Paris was a delight. That storyline as a base, coupled with a boy like Etienne... I can't get enough.
With a contemporary that's based in another country, and totally believable characters, ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS is a wonderful love story. There is some crude humor, and a good number of sexual innuendos, but besides those, the story was magical! I give it four stars, and if you love contemporary romance, then this is 100% a book for you. Go out and pick up a copy!
