Waiting on Wednesday (39) - Lola and the Boy Next Door

Lola and the Boy Next Door
Stephanie Perkins
Publisher: Dutton
To be released: September 29, 2011

Summary (from Goodreads):

In this companion novel to Anna and the French Kiss, two teens discover that true love may be closer than they think.

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.

So I really LOVED Anna and the French Kiss and I cannot wait to read this companion novel. Stephanie Perkins is just a genius with contemporary teen romance and I just cannot wait to read what she writes next because I is sure to be FANTASTIC. Lola and the Boy Next Door sounds like it will be a great companion to Anna and the French Kiss. CANNOT WAIT!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event highlighting exciting upcoming releases. It is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
