I loved reading about Anna’s experiences in Paris. It made me want to go back to Europe so badly.The story was a little melodramatic at times (teenagers tend to be melodramatic). I could see this being annoying (let’s face it, teenagers are kind of annoying too… I know I was) but when I was reading the book it all felt real. Perkins captures embarrassing scenes particularly well. None of the situations depicted are that deep or life-changing, but the characters are well-developed so I believe the situations they find themselves in… most of them anyway.Some of the confrontations with the antagonist fell flat for me. That particular character is not well developed. There’s nothing there beyond Mean Girl. However, all the other secondary characters were nicely fleshed out. I could see myself reading a novel about almost any of them.
