This review is from: Diary of a Crush: French Kiss: Number 1 in series (Paperback)
Review by Charlotte - Year 9
Personally, I loved reading French Kiss. The story is written in diary format, every entry detailed to such an extent you feel as if you are watching the plot unfold like a TV series. Sarra Manning has captured the emotions perfectly, each emotion whether sadness or excitement fuelled my desire to continue reading. The mix of romance versus teen heartache creates an exciting, gripping and relatable book.
French Kiss focuses on a new college student, Edie. At first Edie finds it difficult to make friends in this new environment. She also drawn to a handsome boy named Dylan. Although she doesn’t know him she feels very strongly about him to the point of obsession, he is all she thinks about.
As time progresses Edie settles into her new life in college making a few friends in her art class, Dylan among them. When the class goes on a trip to Paris, things start to heat up between Edie and Dylan.
I is impossible to pick my favourite part, I loved it all. I would definitely read more by Sarra Manning, she has a way of maintaining a thrilling atmosphere, there is never a dull or boring moment. I am definitely going to read the other books in this series, I cannot wait to see what happens with Edie and Dylan.
I would 100% recommend this to 13+ girls. I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline and Edie is a stereotypical teen girl who is easy to relate to. If you like romance with high levels of emotion and excitement than this is the book for you.
