Book Review: Anna and the French Kiss

Hi there!

Okay, so I'm trying out reviews for a while on my blog. Let's see how this goes, shall we? By the way, I will only do reviews of books and movies that I think are worthwhile, so don't expect any scathing remarks or rude comments from me.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins is an amazing book, full stop.

Anna, the main character, is shipped off to Paris by her father, in order to go to a prestigious boarding school. Apart from not speaking French - which would be rather a large problem, I think - Anna is thrown into a world quite different from her own. She meets new friends, a particularly pig headed girl called Amanda and the very gorgeous Étienne St. Clair, who, I admit, makes my toes go all tingly. Étienne is about as close to perfection as lovely foreign boys get. Think British accent, French name and a good sense of humour and, well, need I say more?

Anna and the French Kiss is a really light, clean and funny book. I think anyone between the ages of fourteen and eighteen would enjoy it. A good plot, just enough romantic scenes - nothing too mushy, and the perfect amount on Parisian flair make a really good read. 

Ciao for now...or should I say, à bientôt!
