Waiting On Wednesday (6)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

 Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

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.

Why am I looking forward to Lola and the Boy Next Door? Because it's written by Stephanie Perkins! If you haven't read Anna and the French Kiss yet (and enjoy adorable--yet not sickeningly cute--romances) I'd highly suggest that you go pick up a copy! I'm really looking forward to Stephanie's new book since I enjoyed her first book so much and well, I can barely wait!

Lola and the Boy Next Door is set for release on September 29, 2011 and is published by Dutton (an imprint of Penguin Group). 


So, what are you waiting on this week?

  1. I haven't even read Anna and the French Kiss yet! I keep waiting for it to go on sale, but I guess it's just too good.

    I think this one sounds just as cute!
