Book Reviews: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Anna-And-The-French-Kiss-Stephanie-Perkins-Book-Cover
Undoubtedly the sweetest book I have read this and possibly any year, this narrative is one of love and friendship and family, all neatly wrapped up with some sharp witticism thrown in.
At its heart this is a simple yet deliciously tingly romance, but readers will also find passion, humour, and perhaps even a few tears within its pages.
Anna’s story is a richly woven one, and is sure to please fans of romances of all kinds. The setting, the food, the characters – all is magical and adorable and perfect.
This is exactly the kind of romance teen literature needs more of. It’s dramatic but not overdone, and charming and funny and silly and healthy, which many teen novels seem to lack nowadays. There is no co-dependent, angsty girls here, clinging onto the guys they like with all their might. There is just simple, beautiful connection, which is how life and love should be, and is ultimately the greatest theme within this novel – the connections we form with other people, for better or worse.
Recommended for ages 14+. Contains sexual references, coarse language and moderate themes.
Star4.5
