Staff Reviews

Cheesy title aside (like- a kiss isn’t even a major plot point aside), this is a charming YA novel that I’ve found myself rereading several times over the years. Anna Oliphant is a sassy, average American high schooler just trying to get by. She gets shipped out to Paris by her absent father who wanted to appear high cultured to his yacht buddies. Only problems are: a croissant knows more French than she does, and she does not want to leave her family and friends during her senior year. This adventure in friendship and self-discovery will have you laughing, crying, and groaning with all the heartfelt – and at times dramatic (it is high school) – moments. It’s a story about the connections we make in this world, and how to be at peace with yourself and others. There’s also a wonderful sense of place in this book! Love the characters. Love the book. For anyone looking for a friend in a crazy situation, or anyone interested in studying abroad.

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 listeners - have long awaited?
