Anna is going into her senior year at her high school in Atlanta, Georgia, when her rich and famous father decides to ship her off overseas to the prestigious School of America in Paris. Heartbroken at having to leave behind her best friend, her amazing job, and the guy she has a major crush on, Anna is less than thrilled about her move to the city of lights, until she meets her fellow classmate Étienne St. Clair. Étienne is funny, charming, drop-dead gorgeous and, rather unfortunately, a loyal boyfriend to someone else. However, as the year progresses and the attraction between Anna and Étienne becomes undeniably obvious, Anna discovers that she may just have a chance with him yet.
This book is such a fun and swoon-worthy read about friendship, family and love. The characters are all very relatable to teens, and they each contribute something different and unique to the story. The setting itself sets the mood for the whole book, because what better place for a love story is there than Paris? Anna and the French Kiss leaves you laughing, crying and cheering on the budding romance between Anna and Étienne, as you fall in love with the characters and the story they create. Overall, this book is a light, easy and thoroughly satisfying read, perfect for fans of cute romances.

This captures so much of what it is like to fall in love with your best friend and the struggles of a real life senior in high school very down too earth and not too over the top where it doesn't seem like an actual scenario

Anna is not very excited to be sent away to boarding school in Paris, leaving her friends and crush behind, but soon she meets a group of great people -- including Etienne St. Clair. St. Clair is gorgeous, kind, funny, and, of course, unavailable -- he's been dating the same girl for years. This doesn't stop Anna from falling head over heels for him, with predictable consequences.

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 Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all...including a serious girlfriend.

But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss?

Anna is sent to a school in Paris by her father. She is afraid at first. She cannot speak French, nor does she act French. She is without her family in the “city of light and love”. She misses her friends and family in the beginning but then quickly makes friends. Mer introduces her the “Chocolat Chaud” (meaning hot chocolate, not Chocolate show). Anna also meets an American-French-English boy named Etienne St Clair. Despite her crush on Toph (the guy she kissed back in Atlanta), she finds herself falling for St Clair. At first, they become really close friends. But things start to get complicated when they are left alone for Thanksgiving break. Anna knows Etienne is dating Ellie and he knows there might be something going on between Anna and Toph. Will they end up together or will they realize it’s best to stay friends?
