Lola and the Boy Next Door

Lola and the Boy Next Door Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"With two dads, a tattooed rocker boyfriend five years her senior, and a penchant for over-the-top fashion, Lola Nolan is not your average teenager. But as she struggles with the everyday issues of family, friendship, school, work, identity, and determining the difference between love and lust, Lola proves a realistic character with which young adult listeners will easily relate. With a 17-year-old narrator, snappy dialogue, and more than a dozen main characters, narrator Shannon McManus has a daunting task on her hands; however, she is up to the challenge and her reading proves truly exceptional. McManus creates fully realized voices for the book's entire cast — from Lola, her two dads, and her two loves, Cricket the scientist and Max the rock star, to her snobby neighbor, her socially awkward best friend, and her deadbeat birth mother — infusing each character with subtle nuances and never resorting to stereotype. This winning performance makes for a fun, engaging audio experience. Ages 14 — up. A Dutton hardcover." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
