I simply adored this from the very first words of the book to the very last-- and yes, I'm including her acknowledgements in this.(Said last note of acknowledgement: "I am deeply in love with you. Thank you for being you, because you are my favorite." Gah, so sweet!) This book held so many spectacular moments, & I felt transported to a place I've never been (although I have longed to go to Paris, who wouldn't?), yet by the end, it felt absolutely familiar. Anna's character was completely adorable, and I fell in love with the voice that Stephanie gave her. So much of her lingo was mine; maybe we were separated a birth-- supposing it were a fictional birth because of course she isn't real. She has a slight flare for dramatics, but it endeared me to her so much.

Then, there's Étienne St. Clair. *girly sigh* Honestly, where can I find one of him for my own? I became one of *those* girls. You know, the ones that make goo-goo eyes, sighs dreamily at everything he says, laughs at every jokes he makes, & desperately searches for any way possible to relate to anything he stands for... Ugh, gag me. He's too incredible for an adequate description; words truly fail me. I'll just say this: a French boy that was born in America and grew up in London, how can you possibly go wrong with that? (Someone, quick, bottle up his brand and sell it!) In all seriousness, though, I was smitten with him from his and Anna's very first interaction.

I'm trying to remember if there was much in the way of plot, and I can't recall any-- probably because I was too busy being a *girl* and swooning over St. Clair to see through the fog-- but don't let that deter you from reading it. It's a super-quick and enjoyable read meant for days that you just need to giggle and act like a girl in love.
Good Points
Great characters with laugh-out-loud moments that make the book go by far too fast.
