Review: Kisses and Croissantsy by Anne-Sophie Jouhanneau
This is a charming, delightful, smartly written book the chronicles the Paris romp and adventure of Mia an American studying in an intensive ballet summer program in Paris. She is chosen to be Odile the black swan in the ballet Swan lake and her rival Audrey is chosen as the white swan queen. Mia meets Louis a handsome French boy who is the son of her ballet master and they keep their relationship a secret. MIa also is trying to solve a mystery. She believes her great, great, great grandmother was a French ballerina who is portrayed in a Degas painting. She and Louis set out to solve the mystery all the while while Mia and her rival Audrey, who becomes her friend, practice, practice, practice for the the performance of Swan Lake for the apprentice program directors who will be watching the performance and recruiting for ballet companies (The Bolshoi, The American Ballet Theater etc.). I don’t want to give away the end but KISSES AND CROSSIANTS is a Paris travelogue and this was an emotionally driven novel of young love and ambition set in the City of Lights.
