Waiting On: Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and features upcoming releases.

Lola and the Boy Next Door
by Stephanie Perkins
September 29, 2011
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.

Amazon | Goodreads | My Review of ANNA
Stephanie Perkins's characters are amazingly real, and I LOVED Anna and the French Kiss, so I am definitely looking forward to this companion novel.  Now that the cover art has been revealed, I am even more impatient for it than I was before.  I can't wait!
