That we've never run into each other before. I knew you lived on the Upper West, but I've never seen you around. I knew that about him, but I had no idea that he knew that about me. We attend a boarding school for Americans in Paris, but we spend our breaks in Manhattan.
But there's no reason for anyone to remember that I live here, too. My compass necklace knocks against his tabletop. Accomplishment puffs up inside of me. I return the smile as full as I can, even Reviews- August 4, Perkins Anna and the French Kiss completes her trilogy of interlinked romances with a strong finale that examines the emotional intensity of a relationship from its earliest stages.
Isla, a senior at the School of America in Paris, has had a crush on fellow senior Josh since freshman year, but it is only now that he reciprocates her feelings; their relationship quickly gathers steam.
Perkins takes full advantage of her romantic Parisian setting, though the intimacy she establishes between her characters through penetrating dialogue and insight into the agonies and ecstasies of first love would shine anywhere. When Josh gets expelled and the couple becomes estranged, Isla spirals into despair that Perkins explores with aching intensity.
Isla's vulnerability, coupled with her burgeoning sense of identity and desire to maintain her individuality in life and in love, makes her an especially rich character. The supporting cast, including Isla's high-functioning autistic friend Kurt, her prickly younger sister, and Josh himself are equally well realized, and the author's fans will enjoy appearances from characters from past books, too.
Agent: Kate Schafer Testerman, kt literary. August 1, Engaging teen characters with page-turning love lives offer ample vicarious pleasures. Petite, red-haired Isla that's "eye-la" has had a hopeless crush on introverted artist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris. Their chance meeting before senior year catalyzes a wish-come-true relationship that threatens Isla's unusual friendship with best friend Kurt and makes her question her identity and future.
Perkins' characters are quirky and three-dimensional, and their sometimes-startling actions make them seem even more real: Isla and Kurt routinely share a bed; Josh depicts losing his virginity in his graphic novel; Isla and Josh enjoy a steamy weekend trip to Barcelona. They're discovered, and Josh is expelled, but love persists despite distance and restricted phone privileges. In fact, their greatest threat comes from within-Perkins accurately depicts the kind of thinking that helps lovers invent their own problems: Isla's insecurities why should Josh love her when she doesn't have a driving passion or vision of her future?
The titular "happily-ever-after" is as predictable as it is sweet, featuring fan-pleasing cameos of characters from Perkins' two companion books.
A satisfying dose of first love's physical and emotional thrall. Starred review from July 1, Gr 9 Up-When Isla, loopy on medication after a dentist appointment, finds herself in the same Manhattan cafe as her crush object, Josh, she's able to do something she's never managed in the three years they've attended the same boarding school in Paris: talk to him.
Lo and behold, it turns out that he likes her too, and once they're back in France, a relationship blossoms. Alas, the course of true love never did run smooth, and pressures both internal Isla's self-doubt and external Josh's father's Senate reelection campaign force them apart. Is their love strong enough to bring them back together? Fans will relish appearances by characters from Perkins's Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door , both Dutton in this sweet, charming series third that will make readers feel like they're in Paris too.
Realistic characters, spot-on dialogue, and a truly delightful romance make for a novel that will delight the author's fans and win her legions of new ones. Tehereh Mafi, author of the bestselling Shatter Me series.
Her stories ache, soothe, and leave you breathless with joy; there's true magic in these pages--it's an experience you won't soon forget.
