Lola and the Boy Next Door

Lola and the Boy Next Door - Stephanie Perkins I picked this up because I liked the first book in the series, and because it was bound to fill in some square on my YA book bingo board (book with a break-up). Overall, I actually did end up enjoying this book, but when it started talking about Cricket I thought he must have done something truly horrible to Lola in the past, based on the fact that even her parents were really concerned about her reaction to his family moving back in next door. And then when the big reveal came about, and we finally found out what terrible thing he did... I nearly peed myself laughing because it was so dumb. The story did redeem itself fairly quickly, and was essentially what I expected after that, but I just can't get over how much of a letdown his actual crime against Lola was.
