Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anna can't wait for her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a good job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. So she's not too thrilled when her father unexpectedly ships her off to boarding school in Paris - until she meets Etienne St. Clair, the perfect boy. The only problem? He's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her crush back home. Will a year of romantic near-misses end in the French kiss Anna awaits?

"Magical. Anna and the French Kiss really captures the feeling of being in love." - Cassandra Clare, author of The Mortal Instruments series

Anna and the French Kiss charms [readers] with its Parisian setting and très bien boy.”

MTV.com

"Very sly. Very funny. Very romantic. You should date this book." - Maureen Johnson, New York Times bestselling author

"Tantalizing pacing, sparkling repartee, vibrant supporting characters . . ." - Gayle Forman, New York Times bestselling author of If I Stay

"Imagine a mug of rich, thick hot chocolate. Now add a swirl of sweet whipped cream. Yummy? Oui. Well, Anna and the French Kiss is richer, sweeter, and--yes--even hotter. You're in for a very special treat." --Lauren Myracle, New York Times bestselling author of Peace, Love and Baby Ducks and Let It Snow

 

Synopsis:

From the New York Times bestselling author of If I Stay

Allyson Healey's life is exactly like her suitcase—packed, planned, ordered. Then on the last day of her three-week post-graduation European tour, she meets Willem. A free-spirited, roving actor, Willem is everything shes not, and when he invites her to abandon her plans and come to Paris with him, Allyson says yes. This uncharacteristic decision leads to a day of risk and romance, liberation and intimacy: 24 hours that will transform Allysons life.

 

A book about love, heartbreak, travel, identity, and the “accidents” of fate, Just One Day shows us how sometimes in order to get found, you first have to get lost. . . and how often the people we are seeking are much closer than we know.

 

The first in a sweepingly romantic duet of novels. Willems story—Just One Year—is coming soon!

"What if the real question is not to be, but how to be?"

Instead of a sappy love story of falling in love in "just one day," Allyson is trying to figure out who she really needs and wants to be, who just happens to meet a guy she may or may not fall in love with. If you have not read the description of the book or happen to forget all its details (in my case I forgot) then I suggest you don't. It gives a lot away and you end up figuring out what happens to Allyson.

With out giving too much away, Allyson is a high school graduate on an European tour with her best friend. She goes through a series of events that make her wonder who she really is and makes a decision that will ultimately lead her to self discovery.

Gayle Forman's writing is simply wonderful. When reading Allyson's journey you are immediately filled with the same thoughts and emotions as Allyson. Her experience becomes your own and you're left filled with wanderlust.
