Lola and the Boy Next Door

Hola, super short one here. Lola and the Boy Next Door, by Stephanie Perkins (Companion to Anna and the French Kiss...). Lola Nolan lives in San Francisco with her two dads and has a boyfriend who is way too old for her. She wants to be a costume designer and expresses herself by not wearing the same outfit—all bizarre. And the main conflict is that she has issues with her next-door-neighbors. This book was lame and so teenage-booky that it was almost painful. Drugs and serious dating had to crop up somewhere! The characters were all slightly strange and definitely wouldn't exist in real life. The only bright spot is that you get to see Anna and St. Clair in their lives after French Kiss. And Cricket is slightly awesome but I have major problems with Lola. Waste of time, one star. (Sorry if I just ruined Anna and the French Kiss for you but you really had to see it coming!)
