12 Days of Teen Lit: 3 French Adventures!

Because they don't write much YA fiction about Hens, 12 Days of Teen Lit presents: 

3 French Adventures!

Anna and the French kiss by Stephanie Perkins. When Anna's romance-novelist father sends her to an elite American boarding school in Paris for her senior year of high school, she reluctantly goes, and meets an amazing boy who becomes her best friend, in spite of the fact that they both want something more.

Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly  An angry, grieving seventeen-year-old musician facing expulsion from her prestigious Brooklyn private school travels to Paris to complete a school assignment and uncovers a diary written during the French revolution by a young actress attempting to help a tortured, imprisoned little boy--Louis Charles, the lost king of France.

How I stole Johnny Depp's alien girlfriend by Gary Ghislain.  Fourteen-year-old David, the son of a famous French psychologist, falls in love with Zelda, a new patient who believes she is from outer space, and soon they are tearing through Paris in search of her chosen one, Johnny Depp, so that she can take him to her home planet, Vahalal.
