Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins: YA Book Review
Lola and the Boy Next Door. This is a fun, light, feel-good story that has one of the nicest book boyfriends I come across – Go Team Cricket!
Recommended age: 13+
Lola Nolan is a budding costume designer, and for her, the more outrageous, sparkly, and fun the outfit, the better. And everything is pretty perfect in her life (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the Bell twins, Calliope and Cricket, return to the neighbourhood. 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.
