Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

Buy the book


Book summary:

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.

      Let's start with saying that if you didn't like Anna and the French Kiss you probably wouldn't like this one either. It's just that this book is sweet and lovely. Stephanie has her way of writing and it's easy to follow.

       While I really liked Anna, I must add that Lola is my new favourite and while Cricket is a nice guy St. Clair is still in my thoughts. Yeah I know, I shouldn't compare them but still. So about the story. Lola is the girls with unusual style, she has her own view of fashion and she's not afraid to show it. While growing up with two fathers she spends most of her time with her friend and boyfriend. But all this time she is trying to forget the family next door - Bell family. Yes like Alexander Graham Bell. But unfortunately, or luckily for her they're back next door. Now she has to face with twins. Cricket the boy who was her first love and Calliope the girl who once was her best friend but then things changed. Now she must balance between her feelings for her boyfriend and the boy next door. Also she must discover what her real feelings are.

      Yes this is the book that will make you laugh, cry and have that "awww" moment at the right parts. Only I can say negative thing is that the story is predictable. But at some point you forget about it and just enjoy the story. I even though about giving it 4 starts but then Cricket's story about the moon and stars...awww!
Until the next time,

  1. I know, I tried really hard not to compare Lola and Cricket to Anna and St. Clair too but it was nearly impossible! While Anna and St. Clair will always be my favorites because they came first and I fell madly in love with them, Lola and Cricket were fabulous. So glad you enjoyed this one as much as I did!!!

  2. I still need to read Perkins' books. I feel incomplete as a blogger!

  3. Oh I really have to read this book, and Anna too. I hope I'll find some time soon, I really want to read them both! Great review Tanja!

    Yeah Jenny, it's hard not to compare but both are really good :)

  9. Her hair! After reading The Liar Society and The Lies That Bind I have a think for girls with colorful hair :D
    So is this a companion book or is that just another book that person wrote?
    I'm a sucker for a sweet romance.

  10. I loved both Anna's and Lola's books! I can understand why you're more fond of St. Clair though! ;) I liked Cricket and you're right, his story about the moon and stars... *sigh* :D Great review, Tanja!

    Happy Reading! :D
