I loved ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS by Stephanie Perkins. It was a sweet, contemporary love story with engaging characters. (You can check out Veronica's review here) LOLA, the companion book that brings ANNA back as a minor character, is just as charming. Lola's unique fashion sense, and Project Runway talents, jump off the page to make a quirky, adorable character you can just picture walking through her San Francisco neighborhood. Check it out. It will leave you smiling. Promise.

From Amazon:

In this companion novel to Anna and the French Kiss, two teens discover that true love may be closer than they think

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.


I need to read this so badly, I checked it out from the library, but it is still sitting there waiting to be read. This is actually the first review that I read that describes Anna's role. Thanks for that info.
