She went to the top of the cathedral where she was acquainted by her love Etienne St. Clair.

On the roof Etienne explains to Anna, that he and his ex girlfriend, Ellie, recently broke up after Meridith and Rashmi found Anna and Etienne kissing in the park. Etienne also explained to her that he loved her and he had feelings for her beyond belief
4: D | Description of Main Characters | Anna - She's a sweet girl from Atlanta, GA who got sent off to boarding school (SOAP) by her famous author of a father. She left her mother, brother, and best friend behind and she deals with that pain every single day. | Meridith - She is a kind, down-to-earth girl who lives next door to Anna. She (like Anna) is in love with Etienne St. Clair, her best friend, and she doesn't have the heart to tell anyone. | Etienne St. Clair - He isn't your typical SanFransico guy living in Pairs. He has an English accent that every girl finds attractive! His dad is an awful, controlling man, and his mom ends up having cancer! St. CLair has a secret all throughout the book. | Bridgette - "Bridge" is Anna's best friend at home in Atlanta, GA and she has always been there for Anna from day one. | Amanda - She didn't like Anna from the start because she knew St. Clair liked Anna instead of her. She's your typical mean girl who is just seeking revenge. | Dave - He seems nice at first, but turns on Anna when she has nobody left to turn to. He's not really what you would call a sporty jock,but he acts like he is Mr. Right all of the time. | Rashmi - She's mean to Anna at first but she has a kind heart. She just doesn't know what to do ever since she lost her best friend Ellie after she went away to college 10 minutes away and she doesn't even come to see her.

6: F | Imagery - "The high-vaulted ceiling, the intricate stained glass, the gold-and-marble statuary, the delicately carved woodwork... Notre-Dame is mesmerizing.

The warm scent of the burning candles fills the air." pg.4079 | Figurative Language | Simile - "He stands, and his legs wobble like a baby goat." pg.4128 | Hyperbole - "More the a dozen in our neighborhood alone" pg.1063

"Ellie St. Clair, what are you all doing up here? St. Clair, did you really just climb all of those stairs?" Anna asked. "Anna, we all need to talk.." St. Clair splirted out. "He told me about your alls kiss in the park the other day.." Ellie began to tell Anna. Anna's eyes buldged out of her head as the words poured out of Ellie's mouth. St. Clair begins to speak, "Anna, I have been with Ellie for a very long time now, you know that. And I'm sure sure that kiss made you wonder why I'm still with her, but I love her! She knows me better than anyone and like i said i do love her, very much! Please don't be mad at me! I hope you understand why i did this and i hope we can still be friends.. Anna?...Anna wait! St. Clair yells as Anna's eyes fill with tears and she runs down the stairs far away from St. Clair and Ellie!
8: Dear Etienne St. Clair, | I see you have had a some trouble with your mom's cancer! I know how to deal with this myself because about a year ago, my grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer. She didn't go through kemo and radiation because the doctors caught it in time. But I understand your pain. I just want you to know that though it is a tough situation to deal with, things WILL get easier! Hang in there because i promise they will get better! I understand you may think, "Oh she's really close to me, it's my mom, you don't know how to handle it because it was with your grandmother and you're not as close to her as you're with your mom." But my grandmother and i have a closer relationship then my mom and I do. I know how you feel, honestly. My advice to you is to stay strong, then your mom will see that you're strong during this whole process and she will be strong as well! You give her hope! IF you fight through this, and help her along, She will have even more power to fight through this as well. Also, with your dad, just hang in there. One day he will realize that he wasn't a good parent and he will wish he had have been there for you more. It takes parents a long time to realize that it, but it will catch up to him sooner or later! Etienne St. Clair,i promise you EVERYTHING will be okay! Stay Strong! | Your friend, Savanah Stevens | H | Heart to heart

13: M | Make personal Connections | -When Anna gt sent to Paris to attend SOAP, She felt like an outcast being the new girl. I can connect to that because i have switched schools at one point in my life as well and i know what it feels like to feel lost and out of place. -Rashmi in the book felt like she lost her best friend, Ellie, when she graduated and began her new life in college and didn't come to visit her! I can relate to this because i know what it feels like to lose a best friend and its hard to move on from a situation like that.

I've been in love with you this whole bleeding year" Anna and the French Kiss pg. 4159 (Etienne St. Clair) I feel this is important because Anna has had feelings for Etienne St. Clair throughout the whole book and St. Clair FIANLLY expresses his feelings to Anna

He had a rough time with his mom during a big part of the boo, but he picked himself back up and still motivated everyone else so they could motivate him. St. Clair is everyone's favorite including mine. He makes the book as well as the plot! Etienne St. Clair is the big human motivation in Anna and the French Kiss.
