Perkins, S. (2010). Anna and the French kiss. New York: Dutton. 9780525423270
Reasons – Okay, I gave into peer pressure. The bloggers, my colleagues, and other authors raved about Stephanie Perkins’ Anna and the French Kiss. Of course, I had to read it. Lucky for me, it wasn’t walking off a cliff 🙂 . So, I requested the book from HCPL.
High school senior Anna Oliphant finds herself uprooted from her comfortable, Atlanta life and at the School of America – Paris (SOAP). “What the heck?” she wonders. Soon, though, Anna makes friends and meets the charismatic, handsome St. Clair. These two hit it off immediately. Oh, no, he’s got a girlfriend. Anna struggles to achieve a balance between friendship and desire in the City of Love.
Brava, Stephanie Perkins. This book totally rocked. She knew her characters well and the writing is so smooth that I felt as though I were viewing a movie. I remember those mean girls from my K-12 days, too. They would’ve called me a skunk, too, if my hair were as cool as Anna’s.
