Anna and the French Kiss - Stephanie Perkins

Hardcover, 372 pages

Published December 2nd 2010 by Dutton

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 Étienne 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?

WHAT. A. BOOK. And I thought that Chick Lit was so not my thing.
This book is so perfect in every conceivable way. First of all, let's talk characters:

Stephanie Perkins managed to creat witty, funny and oh so charming charecters. Namely, St. Clair... sorry, just got lost in day dreaming there... Liddy, pull yourself together, he's just a fictional character. Étienne St. Claire is such a great character. He was sensitive, and so caring. I really can't describe his greatness. You just need to go and find out.

Anna was perfect for him, she was witty funny, and again so kind. And you could tell that she realy cared about him, as he did for her. She was also so loyal, apart from one time... those that have read it will know what I'm talking about...

My favorite aspect of this book was the setting! Paris sounded wonderful, and I just wanted to jump right in to the book and join them at the pâtisserie!
You have no idea how hard it is to describe this book. Please, just go and pick it up. I can honestly say that this is one of my favorite books of ALL TIME.

J'adore, plus s'il vous plaît!
