Read The French Impressionist Online Free - Rosemary is fifteen and gloriously free, on her own for the very first time. Part of an exchange program for aspiring artists, she arrives in sunny southern France with a single goal: she doesn’t plan to leave, ever. She wants a new life, a new family, and a new identity. But her situation, crafted from lies big and small, is precarious.
Desperate to escape haunting images from her past and a stage one helicopter parent, Rosemary struggles to hide her lack of artistic talent and a communication disorder that has tormented her all her life. She believes her dream of a new start will come true, until she unwittingly finds herself enveloped in a decades-old mystery that threatens to ruin her only chance for success. Determined to stay, Rosemary must choose whether or not she’ll tell the biggest lie of all, even if it means destroying the life of someone she cares about.
Dramatic, heartwarming, and full of teenage angst, The French Impressionist perfectly captures the struggle of those who feel they have no voice, and also shows the courage it takes to speak up and show the world who we really are.

I just couldn't get into this book. The main character Rosemary is unnecessarily snarky at times and a little too immature for me. I get it. She is 15 years old but still. I like the idea of her havin...

I found this book to be deeply moving. The challenges the main character faced were heartbreaking. All the characters were very compelling, and I thought the setting of the story and the twists and turns were fascinating. I was very involved from beginning to end, and I found the writing to be qu...

You know when you get those books, the ones that you're really excited about when you read the synopsis and then you start reading, all excited only to have your hopes quickly dashed. That was sort of this book for me. I thought the premise of this book was great, but unfortunately, that's where...

THOUGHTS: The portrayal was told from Rosemary's perspective and was composed well, in that, I trusted it was a 15 year old recounting the story. Notwithstanding, I just couldn't associate with her. Something about her fair annoys and irrita...

My first impression of this book was good! The story sounded original with a girl who has a communication problem. After reading a few pages ( and discovering about the problem)the cover also made more sense. Shoutout to the designer cause it...

This failed to strike a chord and I read 1/4 of it before I just got bored with it. I think the author's withholding of information worked against her with the reader failing to connect with the reasons the main character in in France in the first place. I felt that character development was a li...
