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

 She is sweet and fun to talk to.
Thanks Stephanie!
