Summary

The story's about Lola Nolan,a crazy chick with a fondness for costumes :) and Cricket Bell(Yes people his great grandfather was THAT Bell).
At the beginning of the story Lola is one happy girl - her life is almost perfect since she has this total rocker boyfriend Max.
But then Cricket Bell moves back. Lola and Cricket have some history and well seeing Cricket stirs up all her past emotions. And so begins Lola's and Cricket's story.

2.Stephanie Perkins knows how to keep the reader really into the book.
3.Cricket is so totally cute.

5.Her relationship with her biological mom Norah.
6.Lola and Cricket are both flawed characters.
7.Anna and Etienne make an appearance. :) :) :) - and I love them even more now.
8.The relationship between Lola and Cricket is healthy.
