Sent to Paris for her senior year, Anna is furious at having to leave behind her best school friend and the boy she works with who she really fancies. Especially as she doesn’t speak French. But once she’s met her new school companions and especially Etienne St Clair everything changes. Anna in falling in love… Seriously! Stephanie Perkins captures all the agony and ecstasy of a blossoming new relationship in this shamelessly romantic story.
A Piece of Passion from Rebecca Hill, Usborne Fiction Director “Sometimes you wish for a book to wrap you up and whisk you away on an irresistible journey. For me, Anna and the French Kiss is one such book. Anna’s exploration of Paris, her brilliantly funny outlook on life and her adorable relationship with Étienne had me sobbing, swooning and smiling from the bottom of my heart.
Stephanie has written a book to savour, laugh and remember, and one you simply cannot put down. We are so proud to be publishing the internationally bestselling Stephanie Perkins in the UK and hope you love this book as much as we all do.”
Anna has everything figured out - she was about to start senior year with her best friend and her huge work crush looked as if it might finally be going somewhere... Until her dad decides to send her 4383 miles away to Paris. On her own. But despite not speaking a word of French, Anna finds herself making new friends, including Etienne, the smart, beautiful boy from the floor above. But he’s taken – and Anna might be too. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with the kiss she’s been waiting for?

Stephanie was born in South Carolina, raised in Arizona and attended universities in San Francisco and Atlanta before settling in the mountains of North Carolina. Having always worked with books – as a bookseller, librarian, and now as a novelist – Stephanie is most usually found writing at her desk with a cup of tea or coffee, except for at the weekends where she can be found at the movies, waiting for the actors to kiss. © Photo credit - Destinee BlauMore About Stephanie Perkins
