Summary:
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.

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

After loving Anna and the French Kiss as much as I did, this is probably the book I'm anticipating the most later this year. I cannot wait to read more of Stephanie Perkins's work. :)

I have Anna and the French Kiss, although I have yet to read it. But I hear great things about it so I'm sure Lola will be very good as well. I've already added it to my TBR list. Great choice!
