Anne-Sophie Jouhanneua's sweet and light-hearted tale about an American ballerina finding love in Paris is the perfect novel to inspire wanderlust. She describes the city and its landmarks so vividly while seamlessly weaving French culture into the story, making it easy for readers to wish they were also spending a summer in Paris. Mia's a strong character who's passionate and determined to make her dream a reality. Her ballet scenes leap off the page, and while ballet is known for its challenging, competitive nature, readers will appreciate the supportive friendships she forms during this life-changing program. They'll also swoon over Mia and Louis' romantic adventures around Paris, how he helps Mia add more spontaneity into her life, and how Mia inspires Louis to figure out what he's passionate about. Parts of the story are predictable, but as Mia gets her fill of Kisses and Croissants, teens will see the importance of perseverance and enjoying every moment.
