This review is from: Lola and the Boy Next Door (Kindle Edition)Brilliant! This is a companion novel to Anna and the French Kiss and you know how obsessed I am with that book! For anybody who has ever felt different, this is the book for you.
Lola is such a fun character. She wears colorful wigs, and a new costume every single day. I'm not a fashion freak by any means, but I couldn't stop wishing that I was an artist or designer and could draw/create these costumes in the flesh. They are fabulous!
I really really like how author Stephanie Perkins makes her love interests friends first. Not just friends, but best friends. I think it shows that's how it's suppose to be! I love Cricket, the boy next door. Even his name is different! He is that nerdy, smart boy with his own style. What's not to love?! He is shy in all the right ways and confident in who he is. That makes him very loveable.
Lola is from such a different background and her personality is so different. She is just different. I love that about her. She isn't afraid of being who she is, especially in high school when everyone is trying to fit in. She was born to stand out!
Lola and the Boy Next Door is full of style, honesty, and first loves. I'm all about it! It is a beautiful book. And yes, Anna and St Clair make a few appearances too!!

"Your father invited the former love of your life in for pie."
"Yeah, that's what I thought."
"Sometimes a mistake isn't a what. It's a who."
