I have always, always, always wanted to travel, and since I took six years’ worth of French classes, Paris has been at the top of my travel list since I was in eighth grade. So, of course, I couldn’t resist a book with this title, with this cover. I mean, come on. AND it kept showing up on all kinds of lists of top YA books.
All I want to say is that I could not have loved this book any more. In fact, I spent most of the book being completely jealous and so very happy for Anna. When I first read it, I wrote this for my Good Reads review:
I want to live inside of this book, which I think is the highest compliment I could pay to it. Love, love, love it.
I couldn’t even think of anything else to say. I was speechless! I’m planning on rereading this several times, and when I do, finally, get to go to Paris, I will be living out some of Anna’s adventures. :)
Visit the author’s webpage here: http://www.stephanieperkins.com/ and make sure you check out the companion novel, Lola and the Boy Next Door, too. It was very good as well, just not quite as magical for me because of the whole Paris thing. Enjoy!
