For those of you that don't know, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where book bloggers devote a post to an upcoming book release they are particularly looking forward to reading.
THIS WEEK'S PICK:
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.
I just recently read Anna and the French Kiss (review coming on Saturday) and I absolutely loved it. It was one of those books that kept me up until the early hours of the morning even though I knew I had plenty of things that needed to get done the next day. I loved everything about the book and I can only hope that Lola and the Boy Next Door will be just as good.
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins will be published September 29, 2011 by Dutton Juvenile.
