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.

    " When I saw Stephanie Perkins at Little Shop of Stories she said that her books were predictable...that the girl was always going to wind up with the boy, but it was the journey that was the fun part. I can't think of a better way to describe this book. I can't wait to read more of her stuff! "

    " sigh sigh sigh sigh sigh. I couldn't suspend my belief long enough to enjoy this, really. It seemed too clear cut from the get go. "

    " So now I've read two Stephanie Perkins books and I absolutely loved both of them. I think that she's one of those authors who I am going to read everything she ever writes. I realize that they're just cute little romance stories but they're so good. The heroines are lovable and relatable and the guys are just perfect. I fell in love with Cricket while reading this story. He was everything I would want in a guy. On top of that, Anna and St. Clair were in the story! It was so great getting to see more of those two characters and seeing them doing well and prospering in San Francisco. Truth be told, I wouldn't mind a sequel or a just a little novella telling me more about Anna and St. Clair and their life post Anna and the French Kiss. But back to Lola and the Boy Next Door, I loved it. It didn't touch all the same chords that Anna did but it was great and it hit a couple of different chords with me. "

    " This book made the butterflies in my stomach flutter like crazy! Still can't get over Cricket, the adorable 6 footer (mehehe). Stephanie Perkins' approach to the storyline and characters was eccentric and refreshing. I definitely recommend this as a Love Month read. <3 "

    " Not nearly as good as "Anna and the French Kiss". Glad that Anna and Etienne made cameos, but would actually prefer a sequel to their life together. "

    " I didn't like it as Anna and The French kiss but i can't choose St.Clair and Cricket Bell! They are both irresistible. "

    " This was really good! I loved Anna and the French kiss more because I was able to connect to the whole 'living abroad' aspect of it, and I liked the characters a bit more, but I enjoyed this a lot. "

    " This book was fantastic, especially as a companion to Anna and The French Kiss! I can't wait for Stephanie Perkins to write more. Aimed more towards girls but it is definitely a good read for any you mature adult. "

    " CRICKET BELL IS THE NICEST GUY EVER.
    Okay, I initially gave this 4 stars, but can't help giving another because of Cricket. He's too adorable?. He's sweet, kind, respectful, has integrity, smart, and has a big, big heart. "

    " I didn't like this one as much as I did Anna and the French Kiss. I'm note sure why. I was amused by Cricket's name. My sister recently got a new dog and named him Cricket because he hops. :) "
