Waiting on Wednesday #22

Lola and the Boy Next Door
by Stephanie Perkins
Release Date: September 29th 2011
Publisher: Dutton

Available for Pre-order:
B&N | Amazon | BAM | Borders | The Book Depository

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. -Goodreads

I was lucky enough to win a copy of this last week from LT, and I can't wait for it to come in the mail! I loved Anna and the French Kiss, and I heard that Lola is even better. (Is that even possible??)  I'm really looking forward to reading it!

What are you WoWing for this week??  I'd love to know what book you can't wait for. Leave me a link to your post so I can check it out! 


***"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.***
