Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

Lola and the Boy Next Door (Anna and the French Kiss, #2)

by Stephanie Perkins

In this companion novel to Anna and the French Kiss, two teens discover that true love may be closer than they think

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.

Ramblings of a Diva Booknerd

Stephanie Perkins is the queen of light and fluffy teen romances. They are fun, flirty and the characters she creates are quirky and full of life. I quite enjoyed how the story included both Anna and St Clair from her first novel, and intertwined them throughout Lola and Cricket's story. If your looking for a light, feel good read, you can't go past Stephanie Perkins.
