Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

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?

I really hate giving bad reviews, but this book was nothing more than a generic cliche romance. It wasn't a bad story, but its one I've read a hundred times. The characters were ok, but I never felt that connection to them or had any type of emotional investment in the story. Most of the reviews were so positive that I wondered if I was reading the right book. If you are looking for a heart fluttering romance that you can't put down, I wouldn't recommend Anna and The French Kiss. It was nothing more than ok....sorry.
