Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer PS
Alexa and Holly are friends who happen to be
part of two different social groups. Alexa and
her boyfriend Diego are celebrating their
aniversary in Paris while Holly is going to
England for a track meet. Holly is devastated
when she hurt her ankle and is unable to run for
the rest of the meet, but then she gets a phone
call from Alexa begging her to come to Paris.
Taking advantage of the opportunity, she goes
over and spends a guilt-filled week there, hoping
she won't get caught by her coach and worrying
about her relationship with her boyfriend, Tyler.
Still caught up in her fight with Tyler, Holly
catches the eye of Pierre, Alexa's cousin.
Meanwhile, Alexa happens to meet Xavier, a famous
artist. Between sightseeing, shopping and hot
dates, Alexa and Holly learn the meaning of
friendship and love.
I thought that this book was a fun read.
French Kiss reminded me a little of Gossip Girl,
and while the story is not the same, fans of
Gossip Girl should pick this one up. This is the
perfect book to get away from real life for a
while. The fact that the story takes place in
Paris makes it so much more fun to read. This is
the pefect guilty pleasure for spring. I'm
looking forward to reading the prequel to this,
South Beach, next.
