Book Review: Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins-4 Stars

Goodreads Summary

While I didn’t love this one as much as Anna and the French Kiss, it was still wonderful! The only flaw (in my opinion) is that Lola wasn’t extremely relatable. She was always designing new, outrageous outfits and wearing wigs. I just couldn’t relate to her character like I could with Anna. Anyway, I still liked her. Lola had a crush on Cricket Bell until something happened, and then his family ended up moving away and Lola thought she could finally forget him, until Cricket moves back in next door. Lola is in a relationship with an older bad boy, Max, whom her fathers HATE. Basically, this is one of those stories where there are lots of misunderstandings, scheming siblings, and stupid MC’s who are totally in love and if they would friggin’ talk to each other, they’d figure things out!!! It’s a really cute story that was fun and swoon-worthy. Especially when Lola says “And if I’m the stars, Cricket Bell is entire galaxies.” It’s a story of second chances, young love, and finding who you are. I can’t wait to read Isla and the Happily Ever After next!

    1. Hi! I do think it’s a great read. I didn’t relate to Lola simply because I felt a disconnect in our personalities. She was a bit whiny, and her hobbies (designing and wearing unique outfits, etc.) just didn’t resonate with me. She wasn’t an unlikable MC though!
