I found it hard to connect with Lola as a lead character. We are polar opposites. Normally, this doesn't bother me, but it did in this book. Many of her ideals and opinions seemed weird and alien to me. The romance between Lola and Cricket was not as problematic as I was expecting it to be, but I did not enjoy the one between Lola and the other guy. It made no sense to me. Also, I found the same problem with dysfunctional families being the reasons behind relationships was still present in this novel, though not as bad as it was in Anna and the French Kiss. I also found the appearance of Anna and St. Clair amusing, and it was one of the few reasons I continued reading the novel. ( )

Lola may be annoying, but Stephanie Perkins got me feelin some sort of way. Also I am here for the Anna and St. Claire content. ( )

While not horrible in any specific way, I just didn't get the same feelings of attachment with this one as I did with the first. ( )

this was definitely better than I expected after reading the the first book :))

it had more of a plot to it and I actually enjoyed the story more. the other characters could have been explained a lot more rather than just solely focusing on the two main characters and just expecting us to care for all the others. I feel like there should be a build up in some way. ( )
