Bookgeek 411: Anna and the French Kiss

Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another cute story.

So we know Anna is shipped off to boarding school because her father feels she should “broaden her horizons.” It’s all good and well, except it’s Anna’s senior year of high school so not only is she leaving her friends and just-blooming relationship with her crush, she has to learn a new language, in a different country, with no friends.

I think Perkins does a great job trying to capture Anna’s frustration, anger, confusion, and overall helplessness. You can relate to Anna.

And as Anna finds herself a good group a lot happens during her time overseas. We see her struggle with her relationship with her best friend, old flame, new best friends, possible new flame, and just life.

Perkins does a great job telling us the story of Anna’s journey, taking us through Anna’s ups and downs as she copes with her new life and tries to blend her two worlds.

I enjoyed the way it was told and the juggling dynamics. I’d definitely add this to my bookshelf.
