Anna Oliphant will go down in history as one of my favorite female characters of all-time. From the very first page, I knew I'd love her. She's quirky and eccentric, but still has plenty of those girly "teenage" emotions. And I also loved that her and Étienne St. Clair, a gorgeous student at her new boarding school, are just best friends for a good chunk of the novel. With a story like this, Perkins could've easily did the whole "love at first sight" thing, but I'm so glad that she didn't. Another thing I admired was that Anna is not a damsel in distress. St. Clair helps her out a lot, but if anything, I think that she saves him a lot more. It really breaks from the mold of typical YA romance.
This is not a perfect, fairy-tale romance either. Anna and St. Clair's relationship has a lot of ups and downs. He's got a serious girlfriend and Anna is still harboring feelings for an old co-worker back in America. But even with those obstacles in the way, the story still progresses, as do their feelings. And it literally leaps off the pages. At times, I would hold the book away from me so that I could squeal/swoon without damaging it!
Overall, I have no appropriate words to do justice to how much I loved Anna And The French Kiss. This book is cute, intense, romantic, funny, dramatic and so much more. Even if you're not into contemporary novels, I definitely recommend you check this one out. I think it might just change your mind!
Everything about her is spot on, down to the way she views her dad. I mean, at first I thought to myself, okay, the dad is kind of a weaselly dork, but, whatever, people like him are nothing to get upset about. But to a seventeen year old girl like Anna, a dad like hers would feel like a nightmare, and through her eyes, I actually found myself detesting him just as much--talk about brilliant characterization.
But Anna is more than just a well-written seventeen year old, she's also a stranger in a foreign land, and Perkins does a remarkable job illustrating the trials and tribulations of an expat's life. I've been an expat, and I can't tell you how many times I thought, "Yes YES YES! That's what it's like!" I have to believe that Perkins must have actually studied abroad.Read more ›
Stephanie Perkins is my hero. If I have ever idolized an author like no other, it would be her. It is absolutely unbelievable that this is her debut novel. I would and will read anything she ever writes. Her characterization is impeccable. I'm fairly sure all the characters are real. Her witty, fun and perfect writing is makes all my dreams about finding the perfect book come true. She captured teenage romance, teenage insecurities and teenage friendship like no one else does.
The setting is also a high point in this book. Not only is it boarding school, but it's in Paris. You wont be able to say you've never been to Paris after reading this. My mental picture of Paris is clear. I felt I was walking the streets of Paris with Anna. I felt I could smell every scent she smelled. This book is a marvelous atmospheric journey that takes the reader to their teen years and to Paris and back. I will never run out of praise for this book because as Lisa Schroeder said, "this is perfection on the page".
You must, must, MUST read it!
