The Best of Etienne St. Clair

Today's the official start of the YA Sisterhood's 2nd Annual YA Crush Tourney. As you know, we're advocating for Etienne St. Clair from Stephanie Perkins' fabulous Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door. Because of this we've decided to put together a little "best of" for Etienne, to give you a little refresher as to why you fell in love with him in the first place or, for those of you who haven't read it yet, a taste of what your missing by not running out to find a copy immediately.

Etienne Quotes:

"I look at St. Clair for help, but find him staring at me with his head tilted to the side. 
'What?' I ask, irritated. 'Soup on my chin? Green bean between my teeth?' 
St. Clair smiles to himself. "I like your stripe.' he finally says. He reaches out and touches it lightly. 'You have perfect hair.'" {Anna and the French Kiss, Chapter 6}
"'You get along well with her, don't you? Your mom?' 
'I love me mum.' He says this matter-of-factly, with no trace of teenage shame. {Anna and the French Kiss, Chapter 7}
"'I like you,' he says. 
My body is rigid. 
'And I don't mean as a friend.'" {Anna and the French Kiss, Chapter 15}
"'I'm here.' St. Clair is angry. I'm just sorry I'm not there. I wish there was something I could do.' 
'Wanna come beat her up for me?' 
'I'm packing my throwing stars right now.'" {Anna and the French Kiss, Chapter 27}
"I have nothing to say about prostitutes (other than the fact that you'd make a terrible prostitute, the profession is far too unclean), I only wanted to type that." {Anna and the French Kiss, Chapter 28}
"'You have too many names.' 
'I have one name. People just split it oddly.'" {Anna and the French Kiss, Chapter 35}
"'If you ask me to kiss you, I will,' he says. 
'Kiss me,' I say. 
He does." {Anna and the French Kiss, Chapter 38}
"The first day of school.' He scoots closer. We weren't physics partners by accident. I saw Professeur Wakefield assigning lab partners based on where people were sitting, so I leaned forward to borrow a pencil from you at just the right moment so he'd think we were next to each other. Anna, I wanted to be your partner the first day." {Anna and the French Kiss, Chapter 46}
Remember to vote #TeamEtienne come July 18th. And be sure to stalk Twitter that day, we'll be giving away a little something special (okay, okay, we're giving away a copy of Anna and the French Kiss!) to one lucky Etienne supporter!
