    1. I really liked this book. It was wonderful. A French Girl in New York had everything from music to love to paparazzi, and to success. I believe that this book had a lot to do with George Benard Shaws popular quote, "Life isn't about finding yourself, its about creating yourself." And the main character (Who, most of you can tell, is the "French Girl" as stated in the title) does what the quote says. She creates herself. This book is also very informative. It tells you about many of the classical [...]


    2. 2.75This wasn't a terrible read per se. It's an interesting story line and the characters were pretty good, but it didn't completely succeed in engaging me.I will continue because I'm a sucker for these kinds of stories, but I do hope they improve.One of my main criticisms with this book was the romance between Matt and Maude.I didn't feel it. The chemistry isn't really there and Matt just magically starts to fall in love with Maude.Little explanation is given and the progression doesn't feel na [...]


    3. 3.5 stars!Read this book on Wattpad. Yeah,that site is quickly becoming my new addiction. Its making me forget how important my text books are at this moment(AKA that awful time of the year AKA tests). Maude was quite a feisty girl and it won't be wrong to say I quite liked her. She kept her head held high even when life was treating her with exceptional cruelty. How she managed to live with those Rutchets is beyond me. I absolutely despise those people. (view spoiler)[ Mr Rutchet was Maude's mo [...]


    4. This book is so freaking cute! I couldn't get enough of it honestly. While I will be the first to admit that it's not heavy reading, there is something about it that takes it out of the fluff category. The author's knowledge and research about the different instruments in the book really impressed me. I also enjoyed the fact that Maude was Black. I'm sorry, but reading about a young girl with brown skin who was intelligent, classically trained, hard working, and witty is a refreshing thing. I ad [...]


    5. I really enjoyed this book from start to finish. I was born and raised in the north of France and moved to the US after graduating high school so, in a way I could relate to Maude's experience (I wish my English was as good as hers when I first got here). I loved how the relationships between the characters evolved and how Maude's passion for music is presented throughout the book.I would recommend this book and I will try to get the second volume. See, what Maude is up to this time.


    6. I remember reading this book on Wattpad about a year ago. I found it quite amazing back then, but didn't know of the existence of , so yeah.I was rather bored yesterday and could not find any good new books, so I decided to reread this one. I think I liked it even better this time."A french Girl in New York" is, no doubt, a wonderful story, and Anna is, no doubt, a wonderful writer.I loved Matt's tour of NYC and Mrs. Bonnin's gossiping. I loved the french influences and how the Baldwins breath m [...]


    7. Very enjoyable story. This is a great YA modern day Cinderella story. Maude is living with her foster family where she was raised since she was a baby. She goes to Paris for a day with school and a music producer from New York hears her sing. She is soon signed on a record label and heads to New York for six months. She immediately fits in with the producer's family and immediately makes friends. I really enjoyed the characters, and how they interacted. I recommend this series and I can't wait t [...]


    8. Let’s get the first thing out of the way: this book is basically pure and utter fluff, with as much as nutritional value as cotton candy. And I’m not faulting this for being fluff; I do like brain candy novels. And I see why this book is really popular (aside from being a free bestseller, although that may have something to do with it)—it’s a simple story with a generally relatable character, and as I said, the literary equivalent of cotton candy.So. Why the two stars? Because, literary [...]


    9. Loved the book. It was very interesting an had me hooked from the beginning! Seriously I was up till gone 12 am reading the book. I would have been up later if my mum hadnt told me to get some sleep ;)!My fav bit was where Matt first meets Maude! I loved the way that maude started to shout at him in french! That was hilarious! Mr and Ms Rutchell were well.ry awful, and I found myself hating them more as I continued to read. How could they hide so much from Maude? But sadly this reality wasnt abn [...]


    10. "A French Girl in New York" is a wonderful story of a girl who succeeds in spite of hardship and a series of obstacles.It is a fascinating adventure that made me want to travel. Matt and Maude's relationship is funny and romantic, because Matt is disoncerted by Maude's behavior towards him.I love the Baldwin family especially Ben. It's too bad we don't get to see him too often.I also think Lindsey's personality should be more developed. But I'll be waiting impatiently for the next book about Mau [...]


    11. I just finished reading this book. I have to be honest I read a couple of chapters and I stopped because my impression of this book at that point was another Cinderella story. I decided to pick it up again and give it a second chance I am glad I did this story was sad at the beginning but later turn in a lovely story about a young girl that was mistreated by her foster parents and in her sadness and loneliness she discovered the love for music.When she starts learning how to play she would play [...]


    12. A French Girl in New York is a pretty good YA-celebrity story if you like that sort of thing. However, the author needs a good editor. The writing reads like it was translated by someone who was relatively fluent in English, but didn't quite grasp the nuances of the language. The punctuation could use a bit of help. The chain of unusually good luck after a lifetime of bad isn't uncommon to the genre, so it didn't stand out for me.


    13. Prompt 9The book A French Girl in New York is very inspiring. This book is about a girl named Maude Laurent who has been living with her foster parents for sixteen years. Life with her foster parents wasn’t always the best. Maude had to take care of her foster siblings, which were twins and very energetic, and she also had to clean the whole house and her bedroom was the dirty basement. In the middle of doing all this work, Maude spends time in the town library to practice playing piano and si [...]


    14. A French girl in New York is an adorable story of a small town French girl who is spotted in a moment of luck on the day trip of a life time to Paris. Maude is a musician who thought her life was destined to be almost a slave to her foster family but has big dreams. Her lucky break comes in the form of James a producer from New York and he whisks her away to New York were she can work hard to become the musician she dreams. I thought the plot was really sweet, it was an easy read which often mad [...]


    15. The orphan whose dreams come true!This was almost a Cinderella story in that regard, but with more grit, spirit, and determination. I liked Maude. She was humble and self-sacrificing, but also fierce and strong. This was a sweet contemporary, almost exactly what I was craving. As a performer, I found the reality/luck aspect a little thick, but that didn't take away my enjoyment of the book. Of course there was a cute love triangle, to be expected, but it played out well. The familial & caree [...]


    16. A French Girl in New York is sort of like a modern Cinderella story. Maude is taken from a horrible life in France to a wonderful life of music in New York. I enjoyed this story, but it did get a little bogged down at times. Maude is a strong character that has made up her mind to make something of her life. She stumbles but with the help of her friends and her NY family, she tries again. There is a sweet surprise at the end. This author is new to me and I look forward to reading more from her.


    17. (Actual Rating 4.5/5)I don't know why I'm writing so many reviews lately. I just get so excited after reading all these books and I want to share ALL THE THOUGHTS. As I mentioned in one of my status updates while reading, I downloaded this book for free on my Kindle after reading a glowing review from one of my friends. I liked the concept, and it wasn't going to cost me any money, so what did I have to lose? I know that's probably not the best way to go into reading a book, but A French Girl in [...]


    18. It has yet to cease to amaze me that so much incredible free content is available on iBook. Seriously, getting an iPhone is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not only do I have my music, but I can also read a myriad of books without lugging them all around in my purse. I continually browse the iBook store for what's new, and I'm rarely disappointed. For the most part, I know what I like and what to avoid, which results in spectacular finds like A French Girl in New York. Just the title [...]


    19. Maude's story is a bit fun and at the same time a bit cliche, but entertaining nonetheless. It is a rags to riches story about an abused girl from Northern France who's musical talent is discovered on a day excursion to Paris. From there, she is whisked away to a glamourous life in NYC with a recording contract under her belt. At first, I was frustrated with the writing, but then I learned that the author herself is French, so I feeli must give her some leeway on how some of the sentences didn't [...]


    20. This was a very cute read. I really enjoyed reading this book. I loved the songs the most, there were a lot of great songs that were written in this book. Maude:I really liked Maude's character. I like how she never backs down from a challenge, and is just a very nice character to read about. Matt:Matt is a cutie, he made me smile a lot as I read. Our took so long for him and Maude. Throughout the entire book, the always new they had feelings for each other but I was just so surprised how long i [...]


    21. A French Girl in New York A French Girl in New York is such a good book. It has descriptive language and follows all he way to the end. It really inspired me to become a musician. The author made me feel like I was really there. There is no part of this book I would change. The strengths of this book are the fact that it includes so much descriptive language and that readers can easily get hooked. I would definitely recommend this book to other classmates, especially if you are interested in bec [...]


    22. Wow. I love this book. There is no way to describe it better. I love the Plot twist at the end, I love the way Anna Adams wrote it. I felt like a personally knew Maude. I can relate to her so much. I love the background mystery. Gah I JUST LOVE IT! I applaud to you Anna Adams, a lot of books I've read can't go into such relation detail, and you can't connect to characters like you can in this book. Can somebody please erase it from my memory so I can re-read it? I thought I'd never find a book b [...]


    23. A French Girl in New York is the kind of story that will surely warm up one's heart. From the minute I read about Maude, I definitely became attached to the story. I felt overjoyed during her triumphs and brokenhearted whenever she was miserable.I specifically admired Maude's "closeness" to the Baldwins. She has never met them in her life yet she treated them as if they've been together for so long and vice versa.It might be quite cliche' but Maude Laurent shows us yet again that dreams do come [...]


    24. Full disclosure: I am not a teen. Perhaps if I were, I'd have appreciated this book. I downloaded it for free from iBooks because I was looking for some light reading while nursing my daughter. I started reading this drivel, and almost felt like I cared about the central character. Unfortunately, it just went downhill. It was as though the author had used a thesaurus exclusively for the word, "said" and didn't bother to worry about any of the other language. It was distracting. Anyway, everythin [...]


    25. Do you ever think that your not lucky because you didnt get a meal or toy you wanted?well after you listen to this review you'll think different. A french orphan who lives in an mean and nasty home filled with two booger eaters,a "side kick" lawyer, and a "super hero" of the house.She is all of their servants.Day and Night.This book is 100% amazing everything was awesome.The way the feelings mash up into one big amazing book.It could have used some other problems instead of just two also could h [...]


    26. I chose this book because the title caught my attention and the blurb was interesting. My favourite character was Maude because even though her caregivers treated her as their personal maid she never complained. I liked this book because a girl growing up with handling anything can become very talented and successful. Something new I learned from this book is that with perseverance you will succeed.


    27. I really liked the book and I think that it was really interesting. I liked how I could relate to the characters. The only thing I didn't like was the ending because it kind of left me hanging.The book is about a sixteen year old who is a orphan and lives in France with her mean family. She ends up living in Paris to peruse her musical career with her new family. This book is going to be great for any teenage girl.


    28. From page one it was clear this book was going to be a happy go lucky book where nothing of serious consequence happened. The dialogue felt forces and more "childish" than "young-adult." It was a fluff book, with a totally predictable plot, and rather basic characters. All in all, not a memorable book reading experience, and the end of my perusal of this series for sure.


    29. I really loved the book ahaha! Maude was a great character, and YAY CLASSICAL MUSIC YAY! (^ ^) I was immersed in the book, and got frustrated and angry at the Ruchet's, at Thomas and at Lindsey! I can't wait for the second book, and YESSSS YOU SHOULD READ THIS!!


    30. I loved this book. LOVE LOVE LOVE. It was the first book that I finished on my Kindle! In reality I would rate it 4 1/2 stars for the slightly cheesy plot line and bad words, but other than that this book was lovely.
