Publisher: Dutton (Penguin imprint)

From Goodreads:

From the glittering streets of Manhattan to the moonlit rooftops of Paris, falling in love is easy for hopeless dreamer Isla and introspective artist Josh. But as they begin their senior year in France, Isla and Josh are quickly forced to confront the heartbreaking reality that happily-ever-afters aren’t always forever.

Their romantic journey is skillfully intertwined with those of beloved couples Anna and √Čtienne and Lola and Cricket, whose paths are destined to collide in a sweeping finale certain to please fans old and new.

This is one of the few contemporary YA series that's grabbed hold and entertained me so much over the past few years. The characters are flawed and funny and quirky and the stories have consequences and laughs and crying. I just want to read this book as soon as possible, and I hope it'll be as fun as the previous two. I don't think this is the full description, but it's all we have so far.
