Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins


I reviewed Lola and the Boy Next Door over at Edge of Seventeen today. Here's an excerpt:

"I loved this book because it was raw and true, in the sense that love is often complicated and messy and you’re not always the person you want to be, and you don’t always make the decisions you should. I usually avoid love triangles at all costs, but this one is done really well. It’s realistic in that it shows how much love triangles can really suck, and how much there is to learn from them. Lola’s choices make for a realistic, messy story (or maybe it’s just that I could relate to them), and this is why I loved her."

You can read the rest here.
