"Waiting On" Wednesday: Lola and the Boy Next Door

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that I am eagerly anticipating.

I loved, loved, LOVED Stephanie Perkins’ debut novel, Anna and the French Kiss. I have only read it about once a month since my first read at the beginning of this year. I’m a huge fan of Stephanie Perkins and was thrilled when I found out she was writing a companion novel to Anna, and that it was being released this year. Music to my ears! Thankfully, my wait is almost over and then I can get my eager little hands on a copy and devour it. Seriously, can you resist reading a book where the hero’s name is Cricket?

No? I thought so. 😉

Lola and the Boy Next Door
By Stephanie Perkins
Publisher: Dutton
Publication Date: Sept 29, 2011
Genre: Young Adult

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.
