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.
Stephanie Perkins's second young adult novel explores the intricacies of teenage love, friendship, and coming-of-age with a love letter to San Francisco woven into the story. Seventeen-year-old Lola Nolan is obsessed with fashion, adores her totally hot musician boyfriend, and loves her parents, Nathan and Andy. Life seems to be going swimmingly, despite parental disapproval of her 22-year-old boyfriend, and Lola views each day as a chance to explore costume. But when the Bell twins return to the neighborhood after being gone for years, Lola's world implodes. She must face Cricket Bell and the feelings she may or may not have for him, as well as cope with his snotty twin sister, an Olympic figure skating hopeful. Characters from ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS are delightfully included.
