New, updated second edition with black and white pictures!

It's Paris like you've never seen it- ugly, unromantic, and hilarious. Pure as newly driven snow, three teenaged girls arrive in Paris, with little money and a large passion for art (especially art where lots of people die gruesome and terrible deaths). Immediately, they are constantly propositioned by men. Everywh

Much like her last travel tale, Exhaust(Ed), Avoiding Sex with Frenchmen is a series of misadventures interspersed with commentary that can only come from hindsight. In this installment, young adult Shoshanah comes across a flyer for a cheap flight to Paris and decides, as a (possible) French major, passing up this opportunity is not an option and drags two of her friends (who have never met each other) with her.

There are some rough beginnings, like the fact that their reservations seem to go mi

I received this book from Goodreads.

This book almost got me in trouble. My mom was with me when I removed it from the shipping packaging and "Avoiding Sex with Frenchmen, A Picture Book for Adults" doesn't exactly inspire innocent thoughts. I had to endure her suspicious glare while she flipped through the book looking for incriminating evidence that wasn't there. Haha.
Maybe next time, mom.
Anyway, as I said before there wasn't anything in the book that would prompt disinheritance from even the m

A wonderful, funny book about three young American women and their visit to Paris. Perhaps just a wee bit better than Shoshanah Marohn's "Exhaust(ed)", but if you read both, I would recommend reading that one first. They do work as stand alone books, but there are some allusions to the other book in this one that are more delightful if you have prior knowledge of the events in "Exhaust(ed)". Recommended for anyone who wants to visit Paris and avoid sex with Frenchmen. Or, just anyone looking for ...more

Adventures in Paris Tombs

Three teen girls go to Paris on a cheap flight for vacation. They're accosted by 117 men while there, all of whom are drawn in the book with number tattoos. The narrator relates events in a confidently wondering tone. Great read😊

This is pretty wacky, and I kind of loved it. Pretty relatable, except for the part (view spoiler) Reading this brings me back to all the foolish stuff I did in college while traveling.

This is a funny book; I especially loved the use of French idioms and their literal meanings, and how they fit in with what was going on in the story. I appreciated the artwork as well, and wish I could draw!

I loved it as is, but I also think I was waiting for either more details on the characters and their relationships, or else more about those French men.

I really enjoyed this and will look for more by this author.

I can only imagine that this is the kind of stuff that would happen to me on a trip to Paris. I laughed at the crazy circumstances these girls found themselves in and as a parent, cringed at the thought of my oldest daughter of the same age traveling with two friends and experiencing this kind of a trip.

This book can easily be read in one sitting. The questionable dudes on each page are a hoot!
