Title: Lola and The Boy Next Door
Author: Stephanie Perkins
Publisher: Dutton Books
Pages: 338 p.
Budding designer Lola Nolan doesn’t believe in fashion . . . she believes in costume. The more expressive 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, Calliope and Cricket, return to the neighborhood.
When Cricket—a gifted inventor—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.
Love, looooove it! I love Lola, I love Cricket, I love the storyline, and I love the cover! Especially I even love it because it’s contemporary YA! (Yes, I am sort of bored reading fantasy, but somehow, that doesn’t stop me to borrow/buy them. Ha.)
