Anna and the French Kiss, by Stephanie Perkins

Borrowed Kindle version from my local library. I was excited to see it was not only available, but available immediately, as it had been on my BookCrossing wishlist for a couple of years—probably soon after my own trip to Paris.

"Anna and the French Kiss" is a charming and surprising YA book. I loved exploring Paris again, living vicariously through Anna who was lucky enough to be there more than a week, and learning a few things for when I go back someday. For instance, I didn't know about the wishing on the star at Point Zero, nor about the Pantheon. Stephanie Perkins managed to convey some good lessons about how to be a true friend without sounding preachy, along with important reminders that the world does not revolve around you.
