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.
Side note: My daughter Kristin of Kritters Ramblings
and I were fortunate to meet Stephanie Perkins at an
author signing. She is sweet and fun to talk to.
Rating: Five Chairs – this book is so good it will be pass on and on and on …..
