Book Review: Anna and the French kiss

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Synopsis- 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: 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?

Initial Thoughts- This book is kind of slow in the beginning, however, it does pick up. When it does pick up this book is absolutely amazing! It deals with not only falling in love, but family issues, friendships, new school, new places. Everything that a teen typically deals with.  

Characters- I absolutely adored the characters. It's a great story about making new friendships, dealing with old friendships. Anna and Etienne St Clare, are the two main characters in this story. The story not only revolves around them, but their family, friends, and life as well. 

Overall Rating[1-5]- The beginning was slow, but after it picked up, I couldn't put it down. So that's why I'm giving it a 5!

  1. Yay! So glad you liked Anna. It DOES start a teeny bit slow, but then it gets so, SO good. And the characters are so believable!
