Oh my, its been a while since I read this one, but I just haven't had the time to sit down and write. That little disclaimer aside, I LOVED this book!
Here is the summary via 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. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris—until she meets Étienne St. Claire: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home.
As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near-misses end with the French kiss Anna—and readers—have long awaited?
I thought the characters were well thought out and developed. Anna, Etienne and all their friends had depth and a range of emotions. The secondary characters, while still secondary, were not glossed over or added just to give the main characters more interactions.
I thought the situations Anna found herself in were typical teenage situations. She wasn't running around, acting like she was 25, but rather, going to the movies with friends, obsessing over a boy (is he my boyfriend / isnt't he? Does he like me / doesn't he), and being somewhat insecure about life---which is perfectly normal! I felt like Stephanie Perkins, the author, really captured what it is like to be a typical American teenager.
Overall, it was just an easy, fun read. I gave this book a 5 out of 5 on goodreads, so definitely go check this one out!
I'd like to thank Penguin Teen for sending me this book. I won a copy by "liking" them on Facebook.
