Pretty in Pink meets Anna and the French Kiss in this charming
Ella is nearly invisible at the Willing School, and that’s just fine by her. She’s got her friends— the fabulous Frankie and their sweet cohort Sadie. She’s got her art— and her idol, the unappreciated 19th-century painter Edward Willing. Still, it’s hard being a nobody and having a crush on the biggest somebody in the school: Alex Bainbridge. Especially when he is your French tutor, and lessons have started becoming, well, certainly more interesting than French ever has been before. But can the invisible girl actually end up with a happily ever after with the golden boy, when no one even knows they’re dating? And is Ella going to dare to be that girl? (from Goodreads)
This sounds brilliant. It's been compared to Anna and the French Kiss, which is my favourite contemporary novel, so I can't wait for this one! This Alex guy sounds like very swoon-worthy. I think if he'd been my French tutor, I'd actually have paid attention to the subject. Maybe then I'd be able to remember more than just "Je vais au cinéma avec mes amies" (literally, this is all I can remember from six years of French). Anyway, this definitely seems like it'll be fun and cute, so really looking forward to it.
