Another great book from Stephanie Perkins. I really enjoyed this little romantic novel, that is perfect for the high school and up crowd. Lola is a truly unique character that is completely lovable and worth reading about. I liked how the characters from Anna and the French Kiss were also included in this book. A great read for the romantic! This would be a fun mini movie, well it at least was like that in my mind.
I borrowed this book from the public library.
