Author: Stephanie Perkins
Published: August 4th 2011
So, Anna was looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta...she did not expect her parents to send her to the S.O.A.P (School Of America in Paris) which, yes, is in PARIS (but thank her parents that they did)! Anna meets Mer, Josh, Rashmi and most importantly meets the charming American with a British accent and a French name, Étienne St Clair. But the only problem is that he's taken...and "it's complicated" has taken a whole new turn of events.
The romance? Tonnes. Anna doesn't even realise it at first though, we get a great character development from when she first moves to where she becomes a bold individual. As for Étienne: bonjour! Ca va? Swoon-worthy? Yes, I definitely think so. Étienne won't let Anna sit around in her sulking, when she has the beautiful Paris around her. I would definitely let Étienne take me round Paris anytime. He can keep a conversation light hearted, jokes and teases.
Stephanie Perkins has never been to Paris?! Yes, that's right, Perkins has never been to Paris but she has managed to capture the beauty and excitement of the city. After reading this book I couldn't help but want to go to Paris again!
