Book Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Anna and the French KissBook Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Anna thinks that leaving everything behind to spend her senior year in Paris is going to be a disaster. That is until she makes friends and meet Etienne St. Claire. Sure, he has a girlfriend, but they have an incredible connection, and soon France doesn’t seem so strange. First book in a trilogy.

More than just a love story (and it is a beautiful one at that), this is a touching story about love, friendship, and ultimately, self-acceptance.

Quotes

On wanting
“The more you know who you are, and what you want, the less you let things upset you.”

On home
And for the first time since coming home, I’m completely happy. It’s strange; home, how I could wish for it for so long, only to come back and find it gone. To be here in my technical house and discover that home is now some place different…is it possible for home to be a person and not a place?
