Anna was 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.  So she's less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris-until she meets Etienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Etienne 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?

Stephanie Perkins keeps the romantic tension crackling and the attraction high in a debut guaranteed to make toes tingle and hearts melt.

'Very sly.  Very funny.  Very romantic.
You should date this book.'
- MAUREEN JOHNSON,
New York Times bestselling author of 13 Little Blue Envelopes and Scarlet Fever

About the author (2011)

Stephanie Perkins was born in South Carolina, raised in Arizona, attended universities in San Francisco and Atlanta, and currently lives in the mountains of North Carolina amidst the waterfalls and wild blueberries.

Her best friend is also her husband, Jarrod. Every room of their house is painted a different colour of the rainbow. They share it with two elderly pups and a pesky cat named Mr. Tumnus.

Anna and the French Kiss was her first novel. Lola and the Boy Next Door is her second, and it is a companion novel to Anna and the French Kiss.
