Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Anna and the French Kiss by 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 √Čtienne 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?” – Goodreads
My Opinion: I have to say that I was surprised. I think that from all the reviews that I had read about this and how much buzz has been happen for the book that I automatically assumed it must have been really good. However, the book seemed to be a little superficial. But it was a cute book.
Anna seem very oblivious to her friends and it seemed as though she was trying to help her friends always resulted with her losing them and alienating her self. Especially with her friends. She also appears to be naive, especially with her relationships with Toph and Bridgette.
The Plot: I liked France, I also loved the St. Claire knew all these little facts about it and that there were certain French historical buildings in the scenes, instead of just at the boarding school. I also loved the drama between everyone. What I didn’t like about the drama was that it was only about love.
Overall: 4 out of 5
