Lola and the Boy Next Door, by Stephanie Perkins
September 29, 2011
For budding costume designer Lola Nolan, the more outrageous, the outfit--more sparkly, more fun, more wild--the better. But even though Lola's style is outrageous, she's a devoted daughter and friend with some big plans for the future. And everything is pretty perfect (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the dreaded Bell twins move back into the house next door.
When the family returns and Cricket--a gifted inventor and engineer--steps out from his twin sister's shadow and back into Lola's life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door.
I know practically everyone else is waiting for this one too, but still, I'm so freakin' excited. I loved "Anna and the French Kiss" so so much, and the pre-release reviews I've read for this one have all been pretty favorable so far. I don't like the cover, but I I don't really care at this point since I can hardly wait to read it!
