This book was very good. I was scrolling through the free books and I saw it. I had read a lot of comments and thoght that I should give it a try...its not like it cost anything. I figured that if I i did not like it I would just delete it. But I found that it was a very enjoyable read. On a different note...after I read the book I realized that some of the comments did not give enough information on the book so I am going to down bellow. Summary-A sixteen year old orphaned girl named Maude has lived in a small french town with her cruel foster parents all her life. She cant help but count down the days untill she is eighteen, old enough to move out of her house and say goodbye to her town. When she gets an oportunity to travel to Paris for a school trip she cant help but lie just a little bit in order to make sure she can finally see the city of lights she has always dreamed of. While she is there she somehow finds herself singing and playing the piano in front of a small crowd in a cafe. But little does she know that an american music producer was there. He promises to contact her, and to her amazement, a few months later he shows up on her doorstep. The only problem is convincing her foster parents to let go of their free waitress and babysitter to persue her dreams in America. Soon a deal is made that might just hurt Maude more than help her. She has six months to feel freedom, find a real family, fall for a guy, embrace her natural talent, and maybe just find out how her parents died. But after that... Pages- about 250 Ages-11 to 15 Stars-***** I hope that you give this book a try!!! You wont regret it!!! :)

I initially picked up A French Girl in New York while searching for books for my daughter. This book was free (our book budget had already been spent that week) and it sounded interesting. Even though I had several other books to read (plus working on my second book) I decided to start reading this one. Anna Adams created characters with great detail and care. Each character had depth to them; this book although modern reminded me of the classics that I so adore! The detail and description found in these pages carried me away to New York and France. I had to push past the first chapter and a half but once I did I was whisked away into Maude's world. Maude Laurent has never known her parents. She was raised (if you can call it that) by the Ruchets. She was treated worse than a servant. She was treated as a slave. She was forced to sleep on a thin mattress in a basement with no light and rats. She found her escape in music at the local library, where she taught herself how to play the piano. During a class trip to Paris she is discovered by James Baldwin who was there on business. Maude goes to New York to live with the Baldwin family for 6 months while she records her album. She knows that she will have to return to France but she wants to make the most of her time in New York, a time where she feels free. She quickly befriends the Baldwin sisters Jazmine and Cynthia along with their younger brother Ben. Victoria Baldwin is a mother like none that Maude has ever seen. they show her what a family is. Matt is a famous pop singer. He is asked to work with Maude on her album, to help her to create her music. Matt is also from France but has lived in New York for 6 years. The two of them do not hit it off right away; their first meeting is certainly one to remember. Matt enjoys pushing Maude's buttons. The day that he shows her around New York City is the day that he starts to lose himself to her. Will he ever be able to tell her how he feels? Will Maude get to keep singing? Will she be a success or will she return to Carvin France and the Ruchets? This book is brilliantly written! I look forward to reading the rest of Maude's story.

I absolutley LOVE this novel! It gives just the right amount of the genres that I love; music, teen fiction, friendship, and romance. Plus, it's not one of those corny love stories (Thank Goodness!) which can ruin some of the best books. I won't reveal the whole plot of the story for you guys but if you're looking for a good, actually great book to read that has an amazing storyline to it, I DEFINITLEY recommend this book!

Books like this are few and far between. This book respects that not everything in the teenage world is about sex. And anna adams sees that not every relationship is like that. This storey is about a young woman whos foster parents abuse her (well kinda sortave) and her life is misrable, until the founder or soul records is in a shop in paris and hears her. A story like this warms my heart. I must sound terribly old but in reality i am only twelve and love books like. So Anna Adams keep writing because i will keep on reading. :)

- Such a cute book! I was hooked in the first few pages. It's not often you find a free, non-paranormal book available on the Nook. This book exceeded my expectations. It centers around Maude Laurent, who I feel is a likeable character. Most of the time characters in free books are undeveloped, annoying people. But Maude was sweet and funny! It's not often that happens. It's also hard to get me mad. But Lindsey Linton did it for me. I was ready to throw my Nook across the room whenever I read about her. And Matt! He was swoon-worthy. He's right up there as my favorite male character with William from Eternal Eden. He's everything you look for in guy. And I loved the ending! It was still good, but at the same time left me hanging for the next book. I loved the surprising twists! But the main reason I love this book is because of the awesome plot. It's a simple idea, but has been built off of enough to be incredibly interesting. I love the settings in Paris and New York- only the best cities in the world! Thanks Anna Adams for FINALLY providing a good free book :)

I wasn't sure what to expect from this author. What I found was a great story line and an interesting read. I didn't give it 5 stars because the romance part got a bit tiring.

A French Girl in New York is a good book. I really enjoyed reading it but it wasnt one of those books that I could not put down. I would reccommend this book to anybody who loves novels about romance and over coming challenges.

This book, though is a bit confusing at first, captures the essence of teen life. The characeristics of the characters, questions about foster homes, families, love, and career are so real that i literally read the book in an hour. READ IT I DEMAND YOU

A modern Cinderella tale about a girl who become a pop star. This book was enjoyable but not enough to draw me in for the long haul. I would recommend this book to tweens as it plays alone the lines of The Princess Diaries for which I absolutely ADORED!!!! If you are looking for a good book to recommend to your children look no further :)
