Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
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.
Release Date: September 29, 2011
I just recently finished Anna and the French Kiss, Stephanie Perkins' debut novel, and I adored it. Basically, if that was her debut, I can't wait to see what she dishes out with Lola and the Boy Next Door.
Upon reading the synopsis, they seem like fluff reads, but really, they have a lot more depth --- which I love.
September 29th should be a great day. :)
