Anna and the French Kiss - Stephanie Perkins When I started reading this book, I was afraid that I would have to tell Zemira that I hated it - I'm a bit touchy about books written by American authors about Paris or any other place in Europe. But, as always, Zemira has excellent taste, so in the end I've been awake all night reading Anna and the French Kiss. I give it a four stars because beginning was a little off, but it's still one of my favourite books.
