Will Anna find romance in the City of Light? Anna is happy in Atlanta. She has a loyal best friend and a crush on her coworker at the movie theater who is just starting to return her affection. So she's less than thrilled when her father decides to send her to a boarding school in Paris for her senior year. But despite not speaking a word of French and feeling like an outcast, Anna meets some interesting new people and begins to be charmed by Paris, including the handsome Etienne St. Clair, who quickly becomes her best friend, even if she might want more. Unfortunately he's taken - and Anna might be, too. Will a year of romantic near misses end with the French kiss she's been waiting for?

Reviews

"Magical. Anna and the French Kiss really captures the feeling of being in love." - Cassandra Clare, author of The Mortal Instruments series "From the magical streets of Paris to its charming narrator, Anna and the French Kiss has it all. A wonderfully winning book!" --Robin Benway, author of Audrey, Wait! and "The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, & June" "No one captures the exhilarating and exhausting but-does-he-like-me?!' question better than Stephanie Perkins. A scrumptious read." --Justina Chen, author of "North of Beautiful" "Very sly. Very funny. Very romantic. You should date this book." --Maureen Johnson, New York Times bestselling author of "13 Little Blue Envelopes" and "Scarlett Fever" "Smart and sensual, Anna and the French Kiss is everything your heart is longing for.

Kim Mai Guest delivers a pitch-perfect performance in the audio version of this confectionery romance about Anna Oliphant, an Atlanta high school student whose parents suddenly decide to send her to a posh Paris boarding school for her senior year. Although Anna initially resists her year abroad, she soon becomes intoxicated with the city, its food, its movie theaters, and-most of all-fellow student Etienne St. Clair. Guest's narration is enchanting, hitting all the marks in her portrayal of Anna: sighing impatiently at her author father (who is a spot-on parody of novelist Nicholas Sparks), squealing with convincing excitement at the attentions of male suitors, gurgling with revulsion when one of them vomits on her after a night of binge drinking. Additionally, her rendition of the school's requisite "mean girl," the air-headed Amanda, is equally enjoyable. Guest enhances this standard teen romance with her sparkling performance.

Anna and the French Kiss is the most charming novel I’ve read in a very long time. It was impossible to put down once I picked it up! The dialogue is sharp and well executed. The characters were extremely well written. There wasn’t a character I didn’t like! OH, and Etienne St. Clair? Let’s just say Anna’s not the only one who’s fallen head over heels in love!
