So I guess I'm in a polyamorous relationship now because I read** an ARC of Lola and the Boy Next Door this weekend, and I'm totally in love with it, too.
A few reasons why:
- Bay-area setting. If I didn't like in NYC, I would want to live in Northern California. Love. And Stephanie Perkins's richly detailed settings are like bonus characters.
- Costumes! Clothes! Wigs! Sparkles!
- Hot inventors
- Did I mention the hot inventors?
- MORE ANNA AND ST. CLAIR
Budding designer Lola Nolan doesn’t believe in fashion . . . she believes in costume. The more expressive 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, Calliope and Cricket, return to the neighborhood.
When Cricket -- a gifted inventor -- 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.
But wait, there's more! Would you like my ARC? Because I will give it to you.
*Sorry, I couldn't help myself w/ the pun.
**More like devoured. Saturday was supposed to be a writing day but, oops.
