Another GREAT novel!!,
This review is from: Lola and the Boy Next Door (Hardcover)
What can I say... Stephanie Perkins is my new favorite author. I could read her books over and over and over - get to the end and flip back to the beginning to read it again. I loved Anna and the French Kiss and was delightfully surprised to find Anna and St Clair in Lola and the Boy Next Door.
I love Lola! I love her costumes, her tenacity, her indecisiveness even when she knows what the right thing is to do. I love everything about her. And I loved going on her journey with her. She's a strong, well rounded character, one I would love to sit and chat with (while possibly helping her to design awesome outfits).
OK, I love everything about this book. I love the story, the characters, the heartbreak, the struggles, the laughter. Oh yes, I laughed. Cricket is way too gangly not to laugh at him sometimes. But he's also brilliant. I love the relationship between him and his twin, Calliope. Heck, by the end I even liked Calliope. The only one I was never thrilled with was Lola's boyfriend, Max.
Back to the review... the writing was fabulous, the story was amazing and once again, Stephanie Perkins gives us a novel for anyone of any age to enjoy! (well, almost every age... there is a tiny bit of swearing and a little sex and kissing) ;-)
