Isla attends The School of America in Paris. So does Josh, a guy she's had a crush on since she laid eyes on him when he was a freshman. But Isla is shy, and Josh is out of her league.
They accidentally meet one day, and begin a conversation. Things move on from there (not easily, however.) Josh is a "bad boy" at school. A rule breaker.
Isla and Josh, once they get together, fall head over heels. But all is not easy. They must withstand a long distance relationship with almost no contact. This is too much for Isla. She makes a big mistake.
Yea, Isla is a bit stupid. But, I think it's pretty realistic -- she has insecurities and has never really been in a serious relationship before. Josh ticked me off too. Taking too many risks, and almost losing everything. But that's the drama of the story, right?
Will these two get their Happily Ever After? You'll have to read Isla and the Happily Ever After to see.
If you enjoyed Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door you will certainly want to read Isla and the Happily Ever After. The characters from the other books are mentioned a few times and make an appearance at the end of Isla, though it isn't necessary to have read those books. But why wouldn't you?? Perkins has a knack for teen romance -- she gets the feels just right. You won't be able to put it down.
