<< Pay close attention and you might solve this.

On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.

Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule.

Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess.

Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.

Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.

And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app.

Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon’s dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose?

Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them. Excerpt from Goodreads.>>

3. Anna and the French Kiss – Stephanie Perkins

Pour les romantiques … Anna, une ado américaine un peu maladroite, se retrouve à Paris. Un roman léger qui te fera voyager dans la capitale de l’amour. Une lecture facile et agréable.

<< Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris–until she meets Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all…including a serious girlfriend.

But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss? Excerpt from Goodreads.>>

4. The Pillars of the Earth – Ken Follet

Après ton voyage à Paris, pourquoi ne pas voyager dans le temps et remonter à l’époque de la construction des cathédrales.  Ken Follet t’emporte dans un autre monde… révolu mais qu’il fait revivre extraordinairement bien.  Prévoyez du temps pour la lecture.  Une fois commencé, le livre est difficile à fermer! 

<< The building of the cathedral, with the almost eerie artistry of the unschooled stonemasons, is the center of the drama. Around the site of the construction, Follett weaves a story of betrayal, revenge, and love, which begins with the public hanging of an innocent man and ends with the humiliation of a king.
