Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins - review

Stephanie Perkins has not disappointed me yet! She has an older boyfriend, strict parents and a great best friend. Her boyfriend Max is 22, in a band and totally cool. Her dads are strict, but caring and other than their strict dating rules, Lola doesn't mind. Lindsay is her best friend and can sense when something is up or guess how Lola is feeling almost immediately. Lola thinks she's hap. Lola thinks she's happy with her life until her neighbours move back in.

The sequel to the wonderful Anna and the French Kiss follows Lola, her passion for costumes and her past with next door neighbour Cricket Bell. Set against the backdrop of San Fransisco, the story weaves together the characters we know and love from Anna and the French Kiss and new characters to fall in love with. Stephanie Perkins success once again in creating vibrant characters with Lola being perhaps one of the most vibrant characters ever written. Her passion for dressmaking and costumes make for a refreshing heroine while Cricket Bell and his inventing again make for another unique and interesting character. The romance aspect of the story was wonderful as always and, like with Anna and the French Kiss, managed to capture the feeling of being in love for the first time accurately. However, in that department I did have a criticism. At the start of the book, Lola is dating Max, a twenty two year old musician.

First off, a confession: I completely and totally regret what I wore to my senior prom. It was white, it was totally lates, and it was completely forgettable. What I should have done was be daring like Lola, who wants to attend her mid-winter formal as Marie Antoinette and completely memorable. Because of this, it almost goes without saying that one of my favorite things about this book was all of Lola's costume changes: rather than looking at fashion as merely clothing, she believes fashion should be an event. I never knew what she was going to wear, or what persona she was going to take, which made an already enjoyable book that much more fun.
