Vote for Etienne in the #YACrushTourney! #TeamEtienne

Etienne needs your votes to beat Simon in the YA Crush Tourney today! Click here to VOTE! Or read on to find out why Etienne deserves your votes.

Hey everybody! It's Jesse and Taylor from Pretty In Fiction! We are so super psyched to be representing Etienne St. Clair from Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. We have both been in love with Etienne since January 1st, 2011, when we both camped out all day with our copies of Anna, enjoying every second we got to spend in Paris with him. So it is our utter pleasure to tell you all about why he deserves your votes today!

The first thing you need to know about Etienne St. Clair is that his name is Etienne, but it's also St. Clair. Here, I'll let Lola from Lola and the Boy Next Door explain it to you.

"Anna is the only person who calls him by his first name. The rest of us call him by his last, St. Clair. I'm not sure why. It's just one of those things." {Lola and the Boy Next Door}

Now that you've been properly introduced, lets talk about looks! The first time Anna meets Etienne, she describes him as beautiful. And he certainly is! He's got big brown eyes and matching messy brown hair. Artist's hair, as Anna says. He may be a little on the short side, but his confidence more than makes up for it.

"If there were an Olympics competition in hair, St. Clair would totally win, hands down. Ten-point-oh. Gold medal." {Anna and the French Kiss}

And did we mention the accent? Because he has an accent. A British one! That's right, go ahead and swoon. We are.

"Eh-t-yen says my name like this: Ah-na." {Anna and the French Kiss}


Oh! That's right. We were telling you why you should vote for Etienne. Sorry! Got a little distracted by that accent.

He's also got a geeky deep appreciation for history. We're talking a this-boy's-got-huge-history-books-scattered-around-his-dorm-room kind of appreciation. And, no. Those are not required reading at the School of America in Paris (aka SOAP). He just really loves history, and loves nothing more than to go on and on about it. Which is okay with us. Etienne can give us a history lesson any day!

"St. Clair's head is always in history books the size of dictionaries,' Meredith interrupts. 'It's hard to get him out of his room." {Anna and the French Kiss}

Etienne is one of those beautiful confident guys who can get away with anything, especially since no one at SOAP can't help but love him. That's probably because he's funny, charming, and stunningly attractive. And let's not forget completely devoted to his mom, or mum as he would say! How cute is that?! But most importantly, the thing we love most about Etienne is that he's in love with his best friend. That's right, he's a boy in love, and he's prone to do some cute and crazy things because of it. Like risking life and limb climbing to the top of a very tall tower to see Anna, when everyone knows Etienne is desperately afraid of heights. But he loves Anna and is willing to do anything to make her happy. What's there not to love about a boy like that!


If your still debating who to vote for here's one last quote...

"He points a finger at me. 'I thought southern belles were supposed to have southern accents.'

I shake my head. 'Only when I talk to my mom. Then it slips out because she has one. Most people in Atlanta don't have an accent. It's pretty urban. A lot of people speak gangsta, though,' I add jokingly.

'Fo' shiz,' he replies in his polite English accent." {Anna and the French Kiss}

Did we mention he was funny?

There you have it people. Vote for Etienne. Fo' shiz.


  1. Excellent post! I <3 Etienne & he has my vote! #TeamPatch
