Summary:

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.




Review:

Just like Anna and the French Kiss, I loved this book. It was such a cute contemporary that I just wanted them to finally admit to each other that they still love each other. But this book was more than the love between Lola Nolan and Cricket Bell, it was about family and friendship.

Another thing I really enjoyed was that Anna from Anna and the French Kiss was involved in Lola's life quite a bit. She was involved in the story and I can't wait to see how Anna and Lola will be involved in Isla's story!
The pacing of this book was good, it was always interesting with Lola's crazy outfits and how see goes about life and suspenseful to see where Lola and Crickets friendship was heading. I would have like to now more about what happens with Lola and Cricket but I know I'll be told in Isla's story. 
Stephanie Perkins' book are adorable. Definitely will be picking up her next companion book.
