Synopsis

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

Budding designer Lola Nolan doesn't believe in fashion...she believes in costume. the more expressive the outfit - the more sparkly, more wild - the better. And life is pretty close to perfect for Lola, especially with her boyfriend. That is, until the Bell twins, Calliope and Cricket, return to the neighbourhood and unearth a past that Lola thought was long-buried. So when talented inventor Cricket steps out from his twin sister's shadown and back into Lola's life, she must finally face up to a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door.
