Waiting on Wednesday: Lola and the Boy Next Door

 Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


 


Lola and the Boy Next Door
by Stephanie Perkins
Published by Dutton
Release Date: September 29, 2011










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.
(from Goodreads)


I finished Anna and the French Kiss this week and loved it. I don't know why I waited so long to read it. It was fabulous. I am now a huge fan of Stephanie Perkins and will read anything she writes. So much fun! I'm sure Lola and the Boy Next Boy will be just as awesome.

  6. I was happy where Anna and the French Kiss left us, but I was even happier when I heard there would be a companion kind of novel rather than a sequel! This is the kind of series every girl should read haha.

  15. Me too!! Anna of the French Kiss was SO wonderful. I've reread it a couple of times now. Stephanie Perkins is a master at creating romantic tension, and Lola sounds wonderful :D. I'm with you--I'd buy anything of hers.
