16. Lola and the Boy Next Door


***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.***

Ahhhhhhh the very interesting lives of Lola and Cricket :) 
Lola is NOT your typical teenager. She is wild (fashion-wise) that she often makes her own clothes. She wears the most unique pieces, sparkly and glittery. She wears wigs too. She has lots of 'em in her room. She lives with her two dads (yes, gay couple, there's nothing wrong with that). They both hate Lola's rocker boyfriend although Lola's very very much in love with him. 
Everything seemed to be just fine until one day,  she saw Cricket and Calliope, the Bell twins. (Oh yeah. They're related to Graham Bell, the inventor.) And that's when everything started to be out of control.

If you've read Anna and the French Kiss, you should read this too. I bet you'll love who you'll meet in one of the chapters in this book.

PS: read Anna and the French Kiss first then Lola and the Boy Next Door.

Bisous!!!

Love,
