When first looking at this book you may be put off by the title. "French Kiss, is this book all about making out?" a friend of mine asked. No, it's not. It tells the story of Anna and Etienne St. Clair, two people going to school in Paris, the city of love. This is a wonderful story full of bright characters and a great setting. This books also has two companion novels Lola And The Boy Next Door and Isla And The Happily Ever After each one focusing on another girl and their story. While it is not a series I would recommend reading them in order.
So if you are into romantic comedies or are just looking for a good story then I would recommend this book.

So.... I have finished this book in a day. It was so SO good! I just wish I had the physical copy so I could hug it, because I would feel ridiculous hugging my phone..... it's too small
This is my first contemporary novel and I LOVED IT! Étienne is so just perfect!
I would recommend this book to everyone and I really wonder why someone hasn't snatched up the movie rights and has already produced it so that I can see the actor who- though won't be able to do him justice- will hopefully be close enough or acceptable, and of course HOT, or Beau (That is handsome, in French) ;)
If you haven't picked this one up, DO IT NOW! Drop whatever you are doing and start reading it! You won't regret it!

The writing was a little simple, but the book was absolutely enjoyable. It is a cute, YA romance book, which are fun for a quick, happy read. Anna and the French Kiss keeps you giggling and hiding in embarrassment along with the main character, Anna. I had so much fun reading this; I was smiling the whole time. I often wished I could be Anna myself, so I was quite happy to live her adventure vicariously.
In this sequel to Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink, our lovable leading lady, Libby, is back in another hysterical read! This time, there's an even creepier ghost story to solve, a more dramatic love triangle to untangle, and much fancier costumes as Libby and Dev tour the South with a group of Civil War re-enactors.
Publishers Weekly praised the Pilgrims Don'tWear Pink author Stephanie Kate Strohm for "turning a strong heroine and a few surprises into a clever, tightly written book that will keep readers wondering who will become Libby's Mr. Darcy." This romantic sequel follows suit in high style! High-style hoopskirts, that is . . .
When history nerd Libby's fashion designer best friend asks for help selling his gowns to the wives of Civil War reenactors, she jumps at the chance to frolick on a nineteenth-century playground. But Alabama's no sweet home: sweltering heat, no Starbucks, a vengeful ghost . . .
And the boys? Miss Libby's got the North and the South fighting for her heart.
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?
