“Because I thought that no one could love me.”
Isla and the happily ever after (Anna and the french kiss #3) by Stephanie Perkins
Genre: YA, Romance, Contemporary
Rating: 5 stars
(DISCLAIMER: This review is based on my opinion only.)
Isla is a quiet artist who has a crush on Josh. And as they embark on their senior years in France, Isla realises that not everyone gets their happily ever after.
Out of all the characters in the trilogy, Isla has to be the one I relate to the most. She’s shy and quiet and even acts like a mum most of the time. I was literally yelling “this is so me” most of the time throughout the book.
I love that Josh is really nice and that he talks to Isla to understand Kurt (Isla’s best friend)’s asperger’s instead of judging Kurt like everyone else in school.
I also really symphatized with Isla throughout the book and my heart broke for her so many times. I found so much of myself within Isla, like being short and also being a middle child.
The ending of this book left me in tears (and I was knitting while crying) so that made me feel really weird. I really liked how the entire trilogy was ended with this book. I loved that each couple and character is unique, yet all their stories intertwine together to form a big complete puzzle when the stories are done.
