Book Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

I am reviewing this book for the Eclectic Reader Challenge 2012 (Romantic Fiction) and the 2012 Book Blogger Recommendation Challenge.

This was one of the books I read for my Young Adult Literature class last semester.

Summary 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: 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?

Verdict: 4 out of 5 stars. I thought this book would be really cheesy based on the title alone, but I loved it! Ii was really cute and engrossing. It captured Paris well and also the feeling of being an American expat (wearing a Canadian flag on your bag)!
