I finally got my hands on Anna!  This book had hype... and do books usually live up to the hype for me?  Not usually.  Did this one?

Yes, yes, OMG YES!  I loved every single minute of this book and I didn't want it to end.  Anna is a senior in high school when her parents send her to boarding school in France because "it will be good" for her.  She's terrified at first to even leave campus, but she makes new friends easily.  She's drawn to Etienne, a handsome young American with an English accent, but he has a girlfriend.

This book was food for my teenage girl soul.  I felt like I identified with Anna so well, that I've lived a bit of what she lived through (though sadly not as romantically) and I knew her emotions were what my emotions would have been if I'd had her life.

The characters, the plot, the setting - everything was gorgeous and well written.  Anna and the French Kiss was romantic, sexy, page turning, and exciting.  I cannot rave about this book enough.

Seriously, I know I sound like a teenage girl from the valley in this review, but you need to read this book.  If you were ever a teenage girl, you need to read this book!

PS:  Is it just me or does the Anna in the book not match the book on the cover?
PPS: I never, ever pre-order books but I'm seriously considering pre-ordering Lola and the Boy Next Door, the companion book to Anna due out the end of September.
