A middle grade take on Anna and the French Kiss will have readers swooning!

Most people go to Paris to fall in love, but twelve-year-old Petunia Beanly goes to Paris to hide from it. She knows how much love hurts. She’ll never forget how painful it was to mess up badly with Windel Watson, the only boy who has ever made her heart turn over. Besides, love is really only for the golden people, like Pet’s gorgeous, glamorous, and infuriating older sister, Ava. So when Pet and her family move to Paris for a year, her plan is to stay in her new room with the blankets over her head.

But Paris knows how to find its way into the shyest of hearts. And Paris has a surprise in store for both Beanly sisters that will change the way they see themselves, each other, and the swirling adventure that is a first crush.
