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. She is less than thrilled about boarding school in Paris – until she meets Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, he has it all – including a serious girlfriend. Will Anna get her French kiss?

Ope’s Opinion:  Amazing!  That is the first word that comes to mind when I think of this book.  It is well written, easy to read and hard to put down.  The descriptions are so vivid I could see the exact picture Perkins was drawling.

Stephanie Perkins wrote the most engaging characters.  I enjoyed watching their relationships grow and change.  It was great to see how they related to each other and their families.  It all felt realistic to me.  I liked seeing the friends of the Anna and St. Claire have their own story lines.

The pace of this story was a steady incline.  I did not want the story to move any faster because I was savoring each moment.  I was in no hurry for this one to end.

I could recommend this to teens or to adults.  It captures the attention of anyone who enjoys reading young adult books.  I like that the language and sexual content are appropriate for age.

I am anxiously waiting to read Lola and the Boy Next Door.  And Isla and the Happily Ever After will come out this summer.                                                steph

I were fortunate to meet  Stephanie Perkins at an
author signing.
 She is sweet and fun to talk to.
Thanks Stephanie!
