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. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all...including a serious girlfriend.
But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss?
Oh my goodness. This book was easily one of my favorite books I read in 2013. Unfortunately, I hadn’t had the time to do many reviews, so I am doing one now. But I read this book within a 24 hour time period. I could not put it down! I literally ignored my phone, tv, and friends because I was so wrapped up in this book.
It didn’t hurt that the main guy interest was just amazing. Oh, Etienne St. Clair. Even just saying his name leaves you all hot and bothered. At least it does for me. Anywho, this book is set in a boarding school. But not just any boarding school but a boarding school IN PARIS. Oh, if only I could have been sent there for high school.
The descriptions of Paris and the tourist attractions made me feel like I had actually hopped in the book and I was Anna. I felt like I was there. Stephanie Perkins definitely knows how to deliver. She made excellent characters and had wonderful descriptions. Not to mention the story flowed so well, that I couldn’t help but continue reading it.
I am so disappointed with myself for waiting SO long to read this book! I should have read it when it FIRST came out. Stephanie Perkins is now on my auto buy list. I already have Lola and will be reading that sometime soon. But I will definitely be getting my hands on a copy of Isla the day it comes out!
If you are looking for something light, heartfelt, and just so sweet, pick this book up (if you haven’t already, that is!) I promise you won’t regret it!
