RTW: Paris & a Boy

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors and followers post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on their blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

This week's topic: You're re-reading one of your favs when someone asks the dreaded question: "What's that book about?" Give us your best off-the-cuff blurb of any book, any genre, and have your readers try to guess the title in the comments!

Thought I'd do a book that I read last week; it should be well-known enough that people can guess it.

"So there's this girl that gets sent to Paris for her last year of high school, and you think she'd be way excited but she's actually really lonely and missing her friends. And then she meets this totally hot guy that makes Paris much more interesting, and it seems like he likes her a lot too--maybe they'll be more than friends? Oh, but he has a girlfriend. And she has a boy back home that's an almost-boyfriend. But otherwise they're perfect for each other . . ."

Did I make it too easy? Put your guess in the comments!

P.S. Pitch University is doing another Pitchfest this week, and the entries and agents' feedback will be posted next week (video pitches and queries). There is still time to submit, but it's also a really good learning experience since you can see all the submissions and feedback in one place.

P.P.S. The contest to win a signed copy of picture book Through Endangered Eyes: a poetic journey into the wild is open through Friday! Just comment on Monday's post to enter.

Sounds like a fun book, but I have no clue!

Ahh, a great one. I know it, but I won't spoil it by putting it here, yet. Can't wait for her next one.

All I will say is this book has been on my MUST READ NOW list since January. Andddd...still haven't read it. I'm sad - I know.

Oh - and if it's not Anna and the French Kiss, forget what I just wrote. :)

Great blurb!

ANNA!!! Oh I simply love that book. As soon as you said Paris I shouted it out!

While I haven't read it and don't really know what it's about, I'm guessing Anna and the French Kiss.

I knew Paris would be a giveaway, but the pitch wasn't nearly as exciting with "girl goes to school in another town". I mean, it's PARIS!

I loved ANNA! Looking forward to LOLA next.
