Lola Nolan is a budding costume designer, and for her, the more outrageous, sparkly, and fun the outfit, the better. And everything is pretty perfect in her life (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the 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.


This book is now one of my favorites!
God, it’s amazing!! So sad that it’s over *cries*

This story follows a girl, Lola, who has two dads.
She loves to dress up and wear different wigs every day, which sounds incredibly fun!

What I liked:

  • I loved Lola, although she was a bit stubborn when it came to Max (probably because she wanted something safe, but still)
  • Cricket. He is such a sweetheart, one of my favorite characters of all time, just so adorable
  • Lola and Cricket's relationship. Took you long enough though!!!
  • Calliope, even though she was very bitchy, she turned out to be kinda cool
  • Lola's parents, because gay parents are incredibly awesome
  • Lindsey. Such a great friend to Lola, and always there for her.

What I didn't like: 
  • Max, who else? He's very cute, but still an ass. I was so offended when he shut the door in Lola's face like ARE YOU KIDDING ME. Ugh I hate the guy

Overall, like all Stephanie's books, this is an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G book.

Rating: ★★★★★ (5/5) Definitely recommend!!!
