Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

Lola and the Boy Next Door  - Stephanie Perkins

**Possible Spoilers**


Short Review;


I really liked this book, Lola is such a quirky character, and she's faced with real life problems that are so relatable, however I do feel I related with Anna from Anna and the French Kiss a slightly better. Still a wonderful book.


Long Review;


Lola and the Boy Next Door is about this teenage girl Lola that loves to wear something new everyday, it's usually loud and sparkly but even with this little bit of crazy she still a devoted daughter and friend.


She thinks everything is perfect, she has her 2 dads and hot rocker boyfriend Max, she's made plans for future and seems pretty content with her life until the Bell twins - Calliope and Cricket - move back in next door


I absolutely love how this book has 2 dads, I don't think I've ever read a book that has homosexual parents, and it worked so wonderfully and fitted perfectly with the characters, it adds to how real this story feels.


The other thing I really loved was how Stephanie Perkins entwined the characters from Anna and the French Kiss into this novel too, they are secondary characters but just having them in there it made it so much more wonderful, I couldn't get enough of Anna & St.Clair the first time, it adds a little something extra and unique to these books.


If you haven't read Anna and the French Kiss, gogogo now and do it!!
