Genre: Young Adult. Contemporary. Romance.
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. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne 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?
After avoiding reading this book for so long, even though there was such a huge hype for it, I finally bit the bullet and read it when it came up as my Book Club Book for August and I’m not too sure why it took me this long to get around to reading it. I am still quite new to the Contemporary genre, so I guess I’m also a little afraid of trying new things, but I am pleased to say that after reading Anna and the French Kiss I may be more willing to step out of my comfort zone when it comes to what I am reading.
While Anna is not all that pleased at being shipped off to France to study, she soon comes to terms with the move and the experience that living in Paris for 9 months can bring.
This book is full to bursting with cute and adorable moments between Anna and Étienne that you will not only find yourself giggling your way through the book, but also yelling at both of the characters because of how oblivious they are to each others feelings.
Anna and Étienne’s story is so unforgettable that you will continue thinking about them long after you’ve read the last page.
