Waiting on Wednesday (10)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It lets us spotlight what upcoming books we can't wait for!
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
Publisher: Dutton
Release Date: September 29th, 2011
Summary via Goodreads:
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.
Holy adorable cover! Purple hair, cute boy, what's not to like? It just looks and sounds ridiculously cute. I am HIGHLY anticipating this one. After reading Anna and the French Kiss I feel like Stephanie Perkins can do no wrong. Hurry up September!!

  11. I still haven't read Anna and the French Kiss, but I really need to! Everyone is raving about it and so excited for this next one.

  12. I love the purple hair. I always wanted to have some but someone told me I had to truly bleach my dark brown hair for it to take... so in the end I just got a couple of stripes - hurt enough to put me off doing my whole head.


    Anyway, I'm just going to start with Anna in the next couple of weeks - it's on the TBR -short list :D

    I hope I get pumped for this one after that.
