Can Anna find love in the City of Light?
Anna is happy in Atlanta. She has a loyal best friend and a crush on her coworker at the movie theater, who is just starting to return her affection. So she's less than thrilled when her father decides to send her to a boarding school in Paris for her senior year.
But despite not speaking a word of French, Anna meets some cool new people, including the handsome Étienne St. Clair, who quickly becomes her best friend. Unfortunately, he's taken —and Anna might be, too. Will a year of romantic near misses end with the French kiss she's waiting for?
I avoided this one because all the hype surrounding it. Honestly, I felt a bit pressured to go and read it, so when the liveshow for Isla came with the Contemporary Lovers group that I was a part of, I pretty much forced myself to read it. I was glad I did..Super cute characters with likable characters that make you want to wish they were real so you can be friends with them!
Traipsing around Paris finding movies to watch in their subtitled French, eating croissants and sipping coffee or hot chocolate at cafes..This is the life that Anna has switched out for. Being an American in Paris isn’t anything new, but with a new culture brings a whole lot of experience. Anna is sent off to boarding school in Paris and she’s not thrilled of the idea at all. But as life goes on, she makes friends with new people and faces and even ends up crushing on the cutest boy at school. It’s your typical boy meets girl love story, but set in the City of Light.
The only trouble that I had was that not a whole lot happens. Except trying to find out if the two would get together. Also I did not enjoy the fact that there was cheating involved. Even if it wasn’t physical, emotional cheating is just as devastating and I wished St. Clair was single to make the story pretty much perfect.
Pretty much the cutest contemporary story that I’ve read as of late. Anna and St. Clair will weasel into your hearts and will make their story unforgettable! Love<3
