Goodreads description :
Anna can't wait for her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a good job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. So she's not too thrilled when her father unexpectedly ships her off to boarding school in Paris - until she meets Etienne St. Clair, the perfect boy. The only problem? He's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her crush back home. Will a year of romantic near-misses end in the French kiss Anna awaits?

"Perkins's debut surpasses the usual chick-lit fare with smart dialogue, fresh characters and plenty of tingly interactions." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Very sly. Very funny. Very romantic. You should date this book." - Maureen Johnson, New York Times bestselling author

"Tantalizing pacing, sparkling repartee, vibrant supporting characters . . ." - Gayle Forman, New York Times bestselling author of If I Stay

My Thought :
Anna Oliphant's father is a famous author. He thinks Anna, just like another rich kid, needs to attend a boarding school in Paris, but Anna doesn't really want to leave her best friend, Bridge, and her younger brother. In France, Anna makes friend with Meredith, Rashmi, Josh, and Etienne St. Clair. Anna and St. Clair are getting closer. They're start to falling for each other. The problem is St. Clair still has a girlfriend.

I love the book. It's fun and romantic. I like how their relationship develop. I like the banter between characters, it make the book more interesting. I also love the characters in the book, especially Anna and Etienne. Etienne is such a sweet guy, even if sometimes he is so stupid and clueless. I highly recommend the book. You really should the book.

I give Anna and the French Kiss 5 out of 5 stars.
