Paris Adieu #Wattys2017 #featured
Ava Fodor is a slightly plump, frizzy-haired nineteen-year-old American au pair in Paris who struggles with being less than perfect. Jean-Michel is Ava's fussy, exacting first French boyfriend whose provincialism drives her up the wall yet who educates her on all matters Parisian. but is their romance first love or coming of age sex?
Four years later, Pascal, Ava's second French boyfriend, gives her something she'll thank him for eternally - an introduction to her own womanhood.
Arnaud, Ava's third French boyfriend, dazzles Ava's head as well as her heart, until she finally tires of matching wits with him in a never ending zero-sum game.
When Arnaud's friend Pierre shows interest in her original songs in a way Arnaud never has, Ava gains insight into who she really is and where she belongs. Pierre's entrance into her life catalyzes her to move in a new direction - back to New York armed with the lessons Paris has taught her.
