Book Review #286 - Lola and the Boy Next Door (Anna and the French Kiss #2) by Stephanie Perkins


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.
My Rating: 5/5
I read Anna and the French Kiss early last year and absolutely loved it and so I can't believe it took me so long to read this.
What I loved most about Anna and the French Kiss was the setting as it really showcased the fact that it was set in Paris. In this book, it didn't have a fancy setting like Paris but it was still very vividly portrayed.
The characters in this book are instantly likeable. Lola was a very interesting character. She is eccentric in the way she dresses but underneath everything she is actually quite insecure.
Cricket was my favourite character. I don't think anybody could not like him. He was the polar opposite to his twin sister Calliope.
It was unique that Lola had same sex parents as I don't think I have encountered that in a book before.
