I'm sure you can predict what I am going to say about this book, because so far I have not given a bad review, which in my mind is a good thing. But, in all honesty, I fell in love with this book.
I was kind of mad at Lola for taking so long on choosing a guy. The answer was pretty obvious *girl with hand sticking out emoji*! Anyways, I am getting ahead of myself.
Lola Nolan is a seventeen year old who loves fashion. She designs her own outrageous outfits and colorful wigs, which is pretty awesome in my opinion; I could never make my own stuff. Lola has two dads, Nathan and Andy, and they deeply disapprove of her current boyfriend, Max, who happens to be quite older. They have strict rules for the both of them; one of them is that every Sunday they all have to have breakfast together.
Lola is content with her life in California, but what shakes her ground is when the Bell family moves back into their house next door. The Bell family are relatives to Alexander Graham Bell, who supposedly invented the telephone. Calliope and Cricket are twins and Lola grew up with them, and was best friends with Calliope until Calliope started becoming popular for her figure skating and blew Lola off. Lola and Cricket have always had a thing for each other, but when Cricket didn't invite her to his birthday party, Lola was hurt and didn't want to see him anymore, but it was all a misunderstanding, but now that they are older the attraction toward each other is intensified.
Lola, like St. Clair in Anna and the French Kiss, has to choose between Max and Cricket. She takes forever to figure it out, but finally she listens to her heart and breaks up with Max. Of course Max is slightly pissed because of all the things he had to do to be with her.
In the end Lola and Cricket are happy together, and I must say, the romance is PERFECT!
I am totally adding Cricket Bell to my book boyfriend list (my list is pretty long). But now that I think about it, maybe I shouldn't. Cricket reminds me of someone I know, and if he ever read this, it would be super embarrassing.
I recommend this book to anyone!
Granny Shoes - safe for Grandmas
Birks - lots of emotion and navel-gazing
Wing Tips - bossy but irresistible heroes
Crocs - funny heroes, imperfect heroines
Vans - testy heroes full of smarcasm
Go-go boots - my highest rating: perfection (with rhinestones)
