Never met a cricket I didn't like!

So, guess what? LOLA AND THE BOY NEXT DOOR has a cover!! Stephanie Perkins (muah! Love her!) just posted a blog post about it not too long ago.

Meet Lola and Cricket! *laughs out loud* Gotta love that name. Never met a cricket I didn't like, especially this hunk on the cover!

And of course, here's the official summary:
"In this companion novel to Anna and the French Kiss, two teens discover that true love may be closer than they think.

For budding costume designer Lola Nolan, the more outrageous 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 move back into the house next door.

When the family returns and Cricket—a gifted inventor and engineer—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."

LOLA has an official release date of Sept. 29 from Dutton (Penguin) publishing. And get this: you know how this is supposed to be a companion novel to ANNA, and how there's supposed to be a connection, well, Stephanie Perkins revealed that this story takes place in San Francisco! And who, my fellow ANNA fans, just recently moved to San Francisco????!!

I know, I know. I'm freaking out, too! Especially about the fact that ANNA in paperback edition is being released August 4th (right around the time of my bday... I wonder if I can snag this copy to match with my hardcover...) AND a super special sneak peek of LOLA will be inside. Excited yet? Thought so.

Thanks for reading, peeps!
