Waiting on Wednesday: Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
Release date:
September 29, 2011

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

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.

If you read my review of Anna and the French Kiss, you know that I adored that book. Perkins is a witty writer who's characters are hilarious and all around amazing. It seems like every time I try to talk about how much I loved Anna, I just end up gushing incoherently. I'm seriously hoping that Lola and the Boy Next Door draws me in just as much. It's set in San Francisco, where Anna will be attending college. Maybe we'll get another appearance from her?

I don't know, but I do have one other question for you guys.

Is it September yet?
