Lola and the Boy Next Door - Stephanie Perkins 3.5 stars. I can't say I loved it, but I liked it better than "Anna and the French Kiss." The female lead is more likable (even with the constant, holy-hell annoying shouty-caps thoughts) and Cricket is...well, Cricket. I want to wrap him up in a blanket and snuggle with him on the couch for hours. Lola's wavering doesn't last an unforgivable amount of time like √Čtienne St. Clair from "Anna" (really, that boy needs a foot up his short little *ahem*) and her quirky personality and funky fashion sense adds a lovely layer to the story that I enjoyed. I would totally read another book about this couple.
