Review: Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

Isla and the Happily Ever After
by Stephanie Perkins

Publisher: Dutton
Pages: 352
Format: book
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  Hopeless romantic Isla has had a crush on introspective cartoonist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris. And after a chance encounter in Manhattan over the summer, romance might be closer than Isla imagined. But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to confront the challenges every young couple must face, including family drama, uncertainty about their college futures, and the very real possibility of being apart. 

Kritters Thoughts:  The third in the companion series that takes the reader back to Paris and to the American school with a new group of seniors.  Isla is the middle daughter of a French/American couple who definitely shows the middle child tendencies.  Josh is the child of a state senator and doesn't quite fit the normal mold of a political offspring.  Isla has had a crush on Josh since day one and now in their senior year she may get the guts to make her feelings known.

What a fantastically sweet and realistic love story.  I absolutely stinkin adore the realistic ups and downs of a senior year of high school relationship.  The puppy love was great.  Although it took awhile it was great to have the appearance of the whole crowd - St. Clair, Anna, Cricket and Lola - but what a great appearance!  

A positive and a negative is that these books read so fast, I wish they didn't because I just adore her writing and would love to read books by Perkins again and again!

I don't know that this will happen, but I sure wouldn't mind another book with Isla and Josh at the center.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
