Anna Oliphant has been sent to Paris for her senior year of high school, tearing her away from her best friend and a blossoming romance with one of her cinema co-workers. Stuck in a boarding school, knowing no one, speaking no French whatsoever, she thinks things probably won’t get much suckier.
Anna is such an awesome character. She’s very funny and passionate and the only time I kind of wanted to give her a poke was when she continued to moon about over St Clair when he showed no sign whatsoever of wanting to pick a girl. I was like, ‘Kick him to the curb! Forget about him!’ I was kind of glad she didn’t in the end, though. St Clair was swoony, but at times I was like, ‘Dude, just piss or get off the pot. Pick. A. Girl’
The supporting characters were fun, too. Anna’s mum was really cool and the description of her dad had me in stitches, because he’s so obviously an amalgam of a few authors that I’m sure we all recognise.
Yeah, I liked this one.
