Ready for romance in Paris, not only in the springtime, but for an entire school year? Anna is from Atlanta and her life is utterly normal. She works at a multiplex theater concession stand, has a crush on a cute musician and loves to hang out with her best friend. Her very ordinary world is turned upside down when her Dad decides she needs to go to a boarding school in Paris for her senior year to become more "cultured". Having attended my last two years of high school in Madrid, I eagerly snatched up this book to see if there were any parallels with my experience. Well, first of all, the title, Anna and the French Kiss, clued me in that the main character had a different experience from mine. I had crushes, but they never progressed to a mutual feeling. Anna, however, meets a very handsome fellow student who is a charming combination of nationalities, British, French and American. Their friendship deepens as he familiarizes her with the wonders of Paris and she hopes that she will be able to call him her "boyfriend". I could connect my own experience with Anna's growing appreciation of this very wonderful foreign city. She learns the names of her favorite delicious French pastries, she and her friends hang out at the Pantheon and other famous Parisian sites and in general she begins to find obscure and charming places that bring the city alive. Read this story for a satisfying romance and armchair trip to the City of Light.
