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 kiss Anna - and readers - have long awaited?

My Review: I don't know why I waited for so long to read this novel... WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME? Well anyway, I knew it would be pretty good just because of all of the great and positive reviews I had seen about it. I didn't know it would be this good though.
   First, the characters. Anna is our main protagonist. She was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia and for her senior year, her dad forces her to move to Paris for her senior year. She is the kind of friend I would want to be with, fun, funny, and polite. Now, if it was me, I think I would be so happy you could hear me in Paris screaming "Oh Yea, that's what I'm talking about!" but Anna didn't want to go to Paris. St. Clair is the sidekick and I loved him... okay maybe more than loved.
   Next, the plot. We follow Anna after she is forced to go to Paris for her senior year of high school. She meets St. Clair and well I don't want to give away the rest but you probably already know.
   Anna and the French Kiss was a roller-coaster ride I didn't want to get off of. I really enjoyed the writing style and characters fun personalities. I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy of Lola and the Boy Next Door.
