Lola and the Boy Next Door

Lola and the Boy Next Door, Stephanie Perkins (Penguin)

Following on from the worldwide hit Anna and the French Kiss comes Lola Nolan. Hailing from San Francisco and queen of radical costumes - the plan is to make an enormous Marie Antoinette gown (complete with elaborate wig) for her high school dance - Lola is eccentric, hilarious and creative. She lives with her overprotective dads, who aren't too pleased about her older boyfriend Max. But Lola's smitten with bad boy musician Max. Then her childhood friend, super tall, kooky inventor, mad-haired former crush Cricket Bell moves back in next door and Lola's world is shaken up.

Funny, sweet, romantic and daring. Highly recommended.
