Q&D Review: ‘Anna and the French Kiss’ by Stephanie Perkins

Rating: 4

The Low Down: Anna gets sent to an American school in Paris for her senior year of high school.

Best Thang ‘Bout It: It’s been a long time since I have read a good ChickLit book like this one. I love that it’s set in Paris, Anna knows no French, she loves the cinema, her Dad writes cheesy romance novels and her potential love interest is French/British/American. Who couldn’t fall for a guy named Etienne St. Clair who speaks with a British accent? Seriously! There are complications, friendships tested, break-ups and mean girls; illness, drunkenness  sleeplessness and heartlessness; and at the end of it all, there is forgiveness.

I’m Cranky Because: My book seemed to stop at page 372. I wanted more pages. I even shook the book upside down, but there weren’t any more. Plus, that’s the bad thing about romances; once they get together, you can’t really have a sequel that packs the same punch, can you?

Should You?: Mais oui!
