Team Étienne, Team Cricket, or Team Josh? You Decide!

A couple of weeks ago our friends at Penguin gave us the impossible task of deciding if we were Team Anna, Team Lola, or Team Isla. Because Stephanie Perkins is so awesome we couldn’t choose, and instead made some characters profiles for all three girls and asked you to choose. To celebrate the release of Isla and the Happily Ever After tomorrow we’ve decided to do the same thing today with the boys. Don’t forget to check our our special surprise at the end of the post, you won’t want to miss it! Now the only question left is… are you Team Étienne, Team Cricket, or Team Josh? We’re here to help you decide. Ready? Here we go…

Team Étienne

  • Physical Description– Messy, dark brown hair and big brown eyes. Short, but so full of confidence that no one seems to notice his height. English accent.

Danny Schwarz as Étienne St. Clair

  • Born In– San Francisco, California
  • Current Location– San Francisco, California
  • Our Favorite Quote

“I trail my fingers across his cheek. He stays perfectly still for me. “Please stop apologizing, Étienne.”

“Say my name again,” he whispers.

I close my eyes and lean forward. “Étienne.”

He takes my hands into his.Those perfect hands, that fit mine just so. “Anna?”

Our foreheads touch. “Yes?”

“Will you please tell me you love me? I’m dying here.”

And then we’re laughing. And then I’m in his arms, and we’re kissing, at first quickly—to make up for lost time—and then slowly, because we have all the time in the world.

  • If You’re Team Étienne, You Probably Like Guys Who Are– Confident, outgoing, magnetic, charming, beautiful, intelligent, and just a little bit wicked.

Team Cricket

  • Physical Description– Dark hair and blue eyes. Tall. Very tall. He moves gracefully, and with enthusiasm. He’s so full of energy that some part of his body is always in motion- hands, feet, etc.

Andrew Garfield as Cricket Bell

  • Born In– San Francisco, California
  • Current Location– San Francisco, California
  • Our Favorite Quote

“So do you believe in second chances?” I bite my lip.

“Second, third, fourth. Whatever it takes. However long it takes. If the person is right,” he adds.

“If the person is… Lola?”

This time, he holds my gaze. “Only if the other person is Cricket.”

  • If You’re Team Cricket, You Probably Like Guys Who Are– Energetic, brilliant, striking, genuine, supportive,  fashion forward, and just the right amount of geeky.

Team Josh

  • Physical Description– Brown hair and beautiful hazel eyes.Tall. Lean, strong body. Long nose.Tattoo. Pale skin.

Chace Crawford as Josh Wasserstein

  • Born In– New York City, New York
  • Current Location– We can’t tell you without spoiling! 🙂
  • Our Favorite Quote

 Josh looks down at his sneakers, and then back up, and then back down. “You know I like you. Right?”

  • If You’re Team Josh, You Probably Like Guys Who Are– Artistic, sincere, self-analyzing, fiery, affectionate, sexy, and who wears his heart on his sleeve.

Conclusion: Choosing between Étienne, Cricket, and Josh is just as impossible, probably more so, than choosing between the girls.

  1. So far, and even though I love Étienne, Cricket has my heart! We’ll see what happens after I read Josh <3

  2. Without having read Josh’s story yet, I’m going to have to go with my first instinct and choose Cricket.

  3. Hmm I guess I would have to say Team Étienne because he’s who I first read about so he’s kind of my first love from that series 😉

  4. Thanks for the giveaway. This is a difficult decision but I think I am Team Étienne St. Clair because I find him charming. <3

  5. Team Étienne all the way!!

  6. I just finished reading Isla and… I still go for… Team Étienne. <3 Thanks for the awesome giveaway! I still don't have my own copy. 🙁

  7. I’ve only read Anna and the French Kiss so far, but I must say that even without reading Isla and the Happily Ever After, Josh is extremely appealing 😀

  8. Since I’ve unfortunately read only Anna and the French Kiss so far (shame on me!), I’m team Étienne (at least, for now!). Looking forward to meeting (and swooning over) Cricket and Josh. 😉
    Thanks for a giveaway! 🙂

  9. I can’t answer this fairly. Not yet, anyway. I just finished Anna and the French Kiss yesterday. I’m currently almost halfway through Lola and the Boy Next Door–and totally loving it. I bought my copy of Isla and the Happily Ever After last weekend and can’t wait to devour it. The only thing I can say with certainty, is all three boys are swoony!

    Awesome giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity.

  10. I’m Team Étienne for sure. He’s kind of my ideal guy <3

  11. I can’t fight agains this… I’m totally Team Étienne, his like a prince in my dreams <3
    I love Cricket but my heart is totally of St. Clair *-*
    I'm still reading Isla and the Happily Ever After, but I can say that Josh is just amazing 🙂

  12. Joshua wasserstein is my favorite boy from a book o swear he’s amazing I might even love him more than the book…no joke
