Lola Nolan is a budding costume designer, and for her, the more outrageous, sparkly, and fun the outfit, the better. And everything is pretty perfect in her life (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the 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.
So basically Lola loves to wear costumes as her daily wear, including the wig. Cricket is her neighbour's son who is handsome, nice and the one Lola had a crush on before she has a boyfriend. Calliope is Cricket's twin sister who is beautiful and known for being a rising star in ice skating (or ballerina, I forgot).
I was annoyed with Lola when I read this book. I couldn't feel or know or try to relate with her. I didn't see her as weird but what annoyed me was her low self confidence and her tendency to make lies to save herself. I have read books about characters with low self confidence but it is not the same with Lola. I just see her as a selfish, whinny teenager who thinks about her feelings first and justifies based on her kinda childish thoughts. Thank God she becomes more truthful at the end of the series.
I just hope the third book, Isla and the Happily Ever After is better than this.
