Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

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

My Review:
This is the companion novel to Anna and the French Kiss which I loved.  So, going into this book I had really high expectations.  And this book exceeded them.  It was different from Anna and the French Kiss, because the characters were not at all the same but that was good.  I don't think that it was quite as good as Anna and the French Kiss, but I can't really explain why.  It was still AMAZING but it was i don't know.  I think that Lola wasn't as in touch with4herself as Anna was, if that makes any sense. But is was still a fantastic book and I totally give it 5 stars.
Another thought: I LOVED Cricket. He is like my dream guy. Totally. I liked him better than St. Clair. Not a lot but just a teensy bit better.  And speaking of St. Clair, I was totally in love with the fact that him and Anna were in this book.  I thought that was a wonderful touch.
So, yes, beautiful book. Go read it.
Love, Amber
