Summary (from Goodreads):
“This full-length novel by debut author Natalie Blitt is a pitch-perfect blend of Stephanie Perkins and Miranda Kenneally that proves the age-old adage: opposites attract.
Seventeen-year old Abby has only one goal for her summer: to make sure she is fluent in French—well, that, and to get as far away from baseball and her Cubs-obsessed family as possible. A summer of culture and language, with no sports in sight.
That turns out to be impossible, though, because her French partner is the exact kind of boy she was hoping to avoid. Eight weeks. 120 hours of class. 80 hours of conversation practice with someone who seems to exclusively wear baseball caps and jerseys.
But Zeke in French is a different person than Zeke in English. And Abby can’t help but fall for him, hard. As Abby begins to suspect that Zeke is hiding something, she has to decide if bridging the gap between the distance between who she is and who he is, is worth the risk.”
This book is absolutely adorable. If you’re in the mood for a sweet, fun read, this is for you.
I love Abby and Zeke so much. It’s instalove, pretty much, but I feel like that happens a lot when you’re a teenager anyway, right? It certainly did for me. And they’re just sweet together.
For me, though, I love Abby’s roommate Alice just as much. (Alice spinoff, please!)
Warning: it will make you want to learn French (or speak it exclusively, I guess, depending on your fluency level) and go to Paris immediately. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it will require time and money. ;)
