If you read YA at all, this is probably a book you already have read and maybe own. I have shared this book with so many people (mostly over the age of 30) and they usually love it. For me, it is an all time fave and I just felt like talking about it again. This is the first book I recommend to people who are hesitant to try a YA book. If they don't like it then I know that they probably won't like any more books about teens, because this one is so good.

Perkins does such a great job of making her characters alive. They banter adorably, but not unrealistically. They all have these little quirks that make them real and human. Plus in Anna, she nails the romantic tension. This is a book I can read over and over and over again and I still get giddy all over.

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 Etienne St. Clair: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home. As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near - misses end with the French kiss Anna - and readers - have long awaited?

If you are one of the people who have not yet read Anna and the French Kiss, what are you waiting for? And also I am always jealous of the people who get to read it for the first time, and get to fall in love right along with Anna.
